Gary here... I just replied to a post concerning electrical accessory additions to a Silverwing and realized that i should have done my introduction here, so there will be some duplication.
I've just "upgraded" from my 2014 Forza NSS300A to a 2006 Silverwing FSC600A; both have ABS and the same Honda quality, so I have little concerns about age or the kilometers already registered.
I want to express my appreciation to the organizers of this forum and to the members who contribute so freely and exhaustively... this is a wonderful facility to augment our understanding of the many complex issues that the manufacturer, dealers and their technical people don't always succeed in making it easy for us users to understand. As a "for instance": I'm 72 years old and have been involved with cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, airplanes and ATVs since my teens and yet I never fully understood what tire wear bars/ indicators are; in fact, maybe I still don't get it but while glancing through a new post here a few minutes ago, I saw a picture that I was able to zoom (thanks for the high-resolution image that allowed that!) and think I may now understand. I have a brand new set of Bridgestone Hoop tires and the same factory-equipped original tires at 14K km still on the bike to study and will do that shortly. When any mechanic would talk about wear bars, I would just nod my head mechanically since it seemed like i should know that yet deep down I really didn't know what to look for yet was too embarrassed to ask! I think that this forum allows for that kind of user... me.

Actually you are in the right forum, but you have responded within somebody else's thread.
Back out a bit, go to the Introductions forum, click on "New Topic" and start your own introduction thread there. That way, the entire thread will be devoted to your introduction and you won't be lost within someone else's thread.
