Hello Silverwing owners. I have recently purchased a 2007 Silverwing and I am looking forwards to touring on it once Covid restrictions get relaxed.
This is the second SWing I have owned in recent years. I sold my last one, also a 2007 model in 2018 and went back to a motorcycle a Honda VFR1200X Crosstourer with DCT box. Excellent motorcycle for touring and I did a Europe tour on it and the North 500 up in Scotland. Because of Covid and lack of riding opportunities I reluctantly sold the bike. Within a week of selling it I missed being on two wheels so I scoured the online selling sites for a SWing. I found a decent one within my price range down in Worcester which is approx 1 hour 30 mins ride from here. It’s a standard one with the big Honda top box on it. I have just had two new Bridgestone Hoops fitted to it so it is now ready to tour.
I know these scoots are perfect for touring as I rode from Spain all the way up through France on my last one and it didn’t miss a beat and kept up with my mates on BMW GS’s and Triumph Tigers. Over my lifetime I have had lots of bikes, mainly Honda’s because I trust the brand. However now have bought this 14 year old beauty I think I will be riding Silverwings from now on. Not as much power as my previous bike but all the power I need for touring and ample storage space and comfort. I just love riding now with my feet high up on the boards on this wonderful machine!

Hello Jamesy. It's a couple of years since I was down Shropshire way, but you do have some good riding about there.

Yes we do Steve, however many of our roads are currently riddled with potholes making riding after dark a dangerous pastime. Crying or Very sad

Two years ago I had a very pleasant weekend in the area with the X9OC; it was my first visit to Ironbridge. Lovely!

Mike, perhaps we should grab a couple of bags of pothole repair and have a ride down to see James 😄

To me Shropshire is The Bern's manor... hi bud. Smile If you're looking on from afar, how's the Zundapp coming along?

I am more of a lurker these days having sold my Swing many moons ago, and returned to big wheels and gearbox as a dodgy knee got better! ;-)

Shropshire and the Welsh marches really does have some great riding roads, although those little quiet "knowledge" routes are all now out there, as apps and programs like BestBiking Roads let everyone know about them!

Where are you based?

No, no! Ride down with a trailer behind you!! Cool

Pretend it's a Gold Wing!! Laughing

I bought a towbar and a super lightweight trailer for the Vara years ago, and had a fantasy that Herself might come camping or touring with me.

Much like my big Premium Bond win.... it never happened! Rolling Eyes
