HI all I have just joine the forum today. Ex Liverpool Fireman, biker for 48 years this year. Just downsized to a 2011 FJS swing. I thought at 71 it was time to give up the big bikes, but when I got my swing wow, its a big bike.
Very impressed I have to say. I never ever thought I would be riding a scooter ( shhhh). Just another adventure to carry me forward.
Got rid of my bikes and the Trike, time to relax now, no gear changing. Great to be here.

Welcome Fireman. Be proud of your Silverwing. Short legs and small wheels? ,yes, but when you get to know it I hope you find that it's a lot of fun. I has a lot going for it.
I'm not proud to say that I've grounded both sides of my SW and that was enough to convince me, and I'm OK now!

Fireman, welcome! I also rode motorcycles until I got my Silver Wing. Buckets of them over the years but this scooter is exactly what I needed and I still love it!

Hi Fireman and welcome to the BEST SWing forum on the net. I also rode many different bikes in my past and now have an 08 SWing Trike and love it. It used to have just the 2 wheels when I first got it but I had it triked out about 4 years ago and have no regrets.
