Hi everyone

I just got my Silverwing up in the Washington DC area and rode it back to Daytona Beach overnight before the real cold set in!

840 miles on interstate 95 in 15 hours! The bike was a dream ride!

Anyone else from the central FL area?

Another 160 miles and you would have qualified for the "Iron Butt" award. Good job on the ride, you will enjoy the Swing!

I definitely did over 1000 miles for the day. I ran around visiting family and friends before I left. And when I returned home I had a few things to do after I got a quick nap.

Congrats on your SWing and it must have been a great ride. The SWing is a very comfortable bike and will take you anywhere you want to go. Welcome to the site too.

Riding home is the right thing to do. TrailerBikers suck. Have fun.

John no way would I have trailered it! I had to introduce myself to her! Show her who was boss and that I could keep her going for many many hours without any butthurt!

I drove straight through the night only stopping for gas and two cups of coffee to warm me up as it was about 40 to 45 degrees out all night. The ride started at 4PM and went to 5:30 AM

Ohh the looks on peoples faces as I passed them on my Scooter hahaha

That's certainly a good break in ride

Two hundred forty miles at a time is about my limit on the seat of a Silverwing
