Greetings from another rider from Australia. (Brisbane)
I picked up my ‘06 Silver Wing a couple of days ago ..
Although having been a Triumph devotee most of my life, after spinal surgery that left me with some nerve damage and a condition called CRPS, due to weakened muscles and joints in my legs, riding a big top heavy bike was no longer a comfortable proposition.
So I set off to find a ride with a low Centre of gravity and a sit up configuration.
I tried a few alternatives, none of which really worked for me.
Then I stumbled across this used silver ‘swing’ in great condition and at a good price.
Once I got used to doing nothing with my feet, (I’ve never experienced an automatic bike before now), I’m just loving this bike, it suits my needs and comfort requirements right down to the ground !
At a time when I thought my riding days were over, I’ve now got a ride that should keep me going for a few more years to come.
Has left me with a new lease on life, and a huge smile on my face .. Happy Days !
Great to meet you all, I look forward to being a part of this EXCELLENT forum.
