Hi,

I have picked up a nice 2008 Silver Wing that has exactly 9200 miles. It is in almost mint condition. It has a couple of minor blemishes when it was shipped from Florida to Illinois. Nothing really serious.
I have paid exactly $3000 for it and I was wondering if that is a decent deal.

Thanks for you input.

Excellent deal! In my country (Argentina) a scooter like that would cost around USD 10,000
I have a 2007 and I have never seen any other Silver Wing in Buenos Aires.
All the other riders ask me when I am stopped at any traffic light "Nice bike! which model is it?"
Here, we have some Kymco Xciting 500, Yamaha T-Max, and not much more. All the rest are 125cc/250cc

That sounds like a good deal to me too. A good deal is when the seller and the buyer are both happy with the deal.

I have an 08 SWing which I bought from my sister in FL last year. It had 18,160 miles on it when I bought it and now had 21,410. I paid $1230 to pay off her loan and gave her $500 to boot. Most of the miles I put on it was last summer after I got it running again. It had sat under a tarp for 2 years and hadn't run. Now with riding season starting back up I'm ready to go once again for the two or three weeks we have here in MN to ride before it gets cold again.

This is her sitting in my garage this past winter patiently waiting for warm weather.

Here are some pictures of my bikes. I have just sold a 2008 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 that my wife didn't like because the backseat was too narrow. I made room for my scooters and my 2004 Honda Aero 750. I found that I was going more for my scooters than my Honda Aero 750 because they simply are more fun to ride.

Here's a rear picture of all of them. You can also see the AMF Roadmaster with BHE-900 engine there. My 9 year old rides it on the sidewalk from time to time.

I ran out of room in my garage and had to put the 1995 Honda Helix 250 in the driveway and cover it because it is raining like crazy for now;

Here are some more pictures of the Burgman and the Silver Wing from behind.

As you can see, there is no room left in the garage. I am seriously thinking about selling the Burgman 400 because the vibrations at low speed are too annoying and I can't get over that. The problem is that my wife likes the Burgman a lot and wants it to stay.

Maybe your wife would like to learn how to ride "her" Burgman 400? Question Question

Not a chance. She doesn't even ride a bicycle, let alone a bike. I don't know if you can see it in the picture but there is a tricycle right next to the Silver Wing. That's her ride. She fell from her bike a couple of times and decided to never ever try a bicycle again. Don't get me wrong, she KNOWS how to ride a bicycle, she just has decided not to do it ever again.
