Hello, I bought a new 2012 Silverwing last Friday. It was $5999. I hope to take delivery today. I'm moving up from a Yamaha TW200 ('turkey wing'). I'm exited to finally be able to get on major roads and interstates.
First order of business will be to rig up a cup holder and phone mount. And I see y'all talk a lot about that Givi Airflow Adjustable windshield.
Fairly soon, I plan to start making periodic trips up to the Smokey Mtn area to see my grandsons.

Welcome to the best Silverwing site on the web. I found a cup holder like the picture below at Target in the bicycle department. Here's a link to the cup holder, Cup Holder  I had to loosen the clamp for the brake and move it a little to make room, but it works great.

You can also get an insert to hold smaller things like cans. Here's a link to the insert, Insert I haven't bought an insert yet so I can't say how well it works.

Welcome - Just picked up a 2012 Silverwing also. Only have 300 miles on it so far but got it on the frway last week and it was extremely smooth - I mean REALLY smooth at an indicated 70 MPH. This is a great forum w/lots of tips etc. and lively conversations. I also have a Suzuki V-Strom and I'll probably take the Silverwing on my next trip as it seems smoother and more comfortable. I don't off-road much anymore which would be a good place for the V-Strom.

PostSubject: Thanks Y'all   Hello Y'all I_icon_minitimeSat Sep 06, 2014 5:24 pm

So I picked up the S'Wing and drove it home - got it up to 65 on a city street - which is the fastest I've ever been on a motorcycle. Definitely a huge move up in power from the Yamaha TW200. I had to get the SW home and get back to work. Next step will be a trip up to 70+ on the interstate.
Taking corners is gonna be different from the TW200. I usually coasted. The SW seems a little too heavy for that. I seem to still need a little acceleration to make the turn. A lot lot learn - I now have all of 12 miles SWing.
WoW, in Britian you can't drink coffee at a red light?. What in heck is wrong with them people  Question .
Didn't know this but I can get an insurance discount for taking a MC class, and another for being in a riding group. Hmnn.
Thank all of you for your thoughts. I'm sure I'll want some help soon. Great forum, Mr. Admin.

It won't coast round a corner as the clutch doesn't disengage until less than about 10MPH is reached (give or take).
Driving round corners is a skill quickly mastered.

I think also that a Silverwing will turn in more quickly than a motorcycle because it has smaller wheels. I stand to be corrected - I've never ridden a motorcycle so it's hearsay.

Well it's nice to know that Majac00 has his priorities right, doing 65mph on a city street isn't that 20 mph faster than the Louisiana speed limit for residential areas? But of course it's good practice before venturing out onto that Interstate.

You are correct sir. I did break the law. That particular street is a long straightaway and fairly remote for the city. Please don't tell the police - this is Louisiana after all. Just picked it up - had to see what it'll do. I only started riding at age 50 (58 now) and consider myself a very conservative driver. At least most of the time. Thanks for your input Meldrew.
