I just purchased a used 2004 Silver Wing from Foothills Motorsports in Piedmont, South Carolina. The salesperson Jeff Callery was excellent to work with and gave me what I feel is was an excellent deal.
I am coming from an 2007 Aprilia Scarabeo 500ie. Unfortunately, it was totaled in an accident. I owned that bike for 15 years and never had a single issue. Frankly, I miss it as it had 16" front, and 15" rear wheels with discs all around. It actually had two discs on the front. Like the Silver Wing the left brake lever worked front and rea simultaneously and the right lever worked the second disc on the front. Think of a Vespa design on steroids.
I decided on the Silver Wing because I felt it would be much easier to have serviced and to get parts for. The closest dealer to me for the Aprilia was two hours away in Knoxville, TN.
