Hi,

New to the forum. Been lurking a few weeks reading. Thanks to all the members who contributed information that helped me decide to go with the SilverWing. Thanks to the posts on the forums, I switched from looking at Burgman 650's to considering Silverwings.

I pick up two used SilverWings on Saturday - an '03 Red for GF and a black '05 for myself. GF has an '06 Yamaha Majesty for learning (MSF course this weekend) and will upgrade to the SilverWing when she's ready.

I curently ride/own a 2002 Kawasaki Concours. I'm not riding it much anymore since I live in the city and it's low speed maneuverability is poor given the 7.5gal of fuel up top.

As has been recommended to others, will be replacing the belts, all fluids, flushing radiator, etc and one gets new tires.

Thanks again and be talking with you.


Drew

Drew,

Welcome and hope you like the site. Post some pics when you get a change of both the SWings. Maybe even give a short write-up comparing the Swing and the Concourse. I hear they both go about the same mph. rolling laughter Welcome.

HELLO DREW!!! Welcome to the family. And GF is welcome too. I had a GF once. Married her 35 years ago this past Monday. Still not sure it is going to work out. I love you Buying her a Silverwing is a smart thing to do. If that doesn't impress her nothing will. Cool That 03 is certainly a pretty color.
You have a lot to contribute to the discussions here.

You'll notice that nobody jumped on your spelling error. I don't know whether that speaks of our intelligence or our tolerance. I hope it is the latter. Welcome to the best forum. Enjoy the ride. small moped small moped

PostSubject: New Wings as of Yesterday   Gretings I_icon_minitimeSun Aug 29, 2010 3:40 pm

RedWing and BlackWing now part of the Family -

http://gallery.me.com/chinasaur#100007

The silver scoot is Cathy's 2006 Yamaha Majesty. Once she transitions off that, we can get the garage back Wink

I put 200 miles on between both wings yesterday. No comparison. Once you get used to the different feel of the lean, the difference in power is negligable. I don't miss the heaviness of the Connie nor the extra 300cc. For what I give up (more fairing for wind and rain protection), I get back low speed maneuverability and improved usefulness. The gas mileage is about the same so that's a wash.
