Looks like Givi or MRA at moment. Just done a ride round Lincs over the Humber bridge today with my pensioner buddies today around 180 miles of cracking roads, neck is shot!

As you're not too far away in East Yorkshire, I still have the Givi Airflow screen I had on my Silver Wing.

I've just found a PM button at the bottom of the page, it says I can't use it unless I have 5 posts, well this is the 5th post Mr Meldreth so it should work now.

Mr Gordie's windscreen quest ended today when we met up at Seaways Cafe, a well known bikers cafe in  Fridaythorpe in the Yorkshire Wolds. He bought my Givi Airflow, along with the Silver Wing factory service manual, and DennisB sat nav mount.

It was nice to meet Gordie and have a few words with his wife too.I enjoyed the ride up there today on the Forza, and I hope Gordie enjoys many happy miles with his Airflow equipped Silver Wing.

Mr Meldrew indeed ended my quest for the airflow which is now sitting happily on my new to me Silverwing. It was great speaking to Mr Meldrew who proudly showed me round his Forza,  I was certainly impressed with his ride. He kindly carried the goods to my car as I am suffering with a bad back and having to use a walking stick. Meldrew did speak with my wife and she commented that he was a nice guy. Thank you Mr Meldrew,  our encounter was very brief due to Hermes drivers leaving garden furniture on our drive and wife wanting to get back home pronto.I hope that our paths meet again soon and we can have a rideout together.

The reason I own an mp3 is because I couldn't knock it over whilst trying to mount/dismount  before and after riding, The mp3''s engine  being broken and in it's 13th week at the dealership in Blackburn awaiting a new camshaft under warranty, it's a long long story but now I have a Silverwing which I can also get on and off without fear of knocking it over. It handles much better than the mp3 and is so much lighter to pick up. The front end of the mp3 is extra heavy, we're talking FJR1300 heavy if it starts tipping over. The suspension could be locked but catch you unawares when setting off if the two wheels were not level. Another problem with the mp3 was that there would be a delay before the tyres would hook up when throwing the bike into a bend whereas the silverwing hooks up straight away in comparison . The top speed of the mp3 is a reported 93mph whereas the wing does 112mph. Acceleration of the mp3 is very slow compared to the Honda, not suprising as it's 500cc and it weighs a ton

The mp3 saved me from having to hang up my riding gear as my last big bike was a cbf1000gt and I couldn't even cock my leg over the seat,  so I am grateful to Piaggio  for the machine but I have never loved to own it whereas I love this Honda. It's a shame that Mr Honda has stopped making large capacity step through scooters. I doubt I could use the new Forzá 750 as the step through part has almost disappearied. Hopefully the wing will carry me well into my 80s where I may be able to give up riding gracefully.  I rest my case!
