Hi,

Just bought a low mileage (682 mi) '05 abs S'wing. I have been riding scooters, cycles since 1968, but this is my first real maxi scooter. Currently also own BMW R1150GS, and a Kymco Granvista (250cc) which is going up for sale. Commute to work will soon be longer, and I wanted abs system. I welcome any advice on good rides, local get togethers, modifications (hyper pro, air cleaners, heated grips?, etc.

Thank you to all who participate and especially to the forum administrator.

Ajay

Welcome ajay.

I can confirm the 'Wing' is an awesome commuter scooter!!!!!! I use mine daily for a fifty mile commute in all weathers. Rain -hail - snow even very high winds but definitely NOT ice!

Look forward to hearing your views on the 'Wing'.

I commute 50 miles each way with my S-wing too. But I keep an eye on the weather reports and don't intentionally ride in rain. I'm not sure how long into the winter I will be able to keep riding. As long as I can, but I'm not going to make myself too miserable. I do have a car, as much as I hate to drive it.

Welcome Ajay,

Unfortunately you just missed your areas semi-annual maxi scooter rally. Even worse my sweetie and I missed this ride also. The good news is the spring rally will be here when we are ready to take in the fresh scent of the Amish countryside.

For a taste on what goes on take a look at this link and open the “ANNUAL MID ATLANTIC FALL RALLY DETAIL” topic.

http://burgmanusa.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=13&sid=f0ec1c4d14df7b6695bfd96489a6c056

Here is the official rally link.

Hope to see ya in the spring…….

Hi Ajay. A BMW GS rider! :not worthy: Still the ultimate motorcycle to those of us who have been around a while. I have a Honda XR250L that I pretend is a GS. Imagination........its a wonderful distraction.! The Silverwing is definitely an addicting two wheeler. Hope you enjoy yours. Hey.....How about a set of Krauser hard cases for your SW??? Oh, this summer I saw an R750/5 this with 125k on the odo. The owner looked like Grizzly Addams.....no bear tho. Take care Ajay. Jeff.

Hey Lesley. I know that FJ of yours is a torque monster,............but years ago I rode a Yamaha Radian around a half mile kart track.......and that short wheel based, quick reving Yammy, is still one of my all time favorite memories. Your wife.......is she married? Dont mind me Lesley, I remind myself of Steve Martins character in the "Jerk". "Wow......the new phone books here!!!" Jeff.
