Mike, thanks for the info on the Laminar Lip, I'm 'swinging' across to the idea more and more.

Love Emeskays graphics, superb artwork. I likeeeeee. The reds with lashes and the silver with the subtle little beard of Dennis's - excellent work.

PostSubject: My "New" 2008 SilverWing.   Please submit a picture of your Silver Wing - Page 2 I_icon_minitimeSun Apr 06, 2014 2:47 pm

Hopefully these pictures of my 2008 Wing will show up. This is the first time I've done this so I'm not sure how to do it.

Anyway, it's a 2008 Wing with 18,160 miles on it. It's a bit dirty in the photos but that's because it was still in FL when I took the shots. I still have to give it a bath and some TLC to get it running. It's a nice looking Wing and will look a lot better once I can give it a bath and wax job. It has a GiVi trunk and windshield on it which is nice. Just from giving it a quick look I will have to replace the left brake handle if I can't straighten it out without it breaking. It got bent when it tipped over one time. Other than that there aren't any signs of scrapes or damage from tipping over.

The trip to FL started off on a bad foot. The tongue on the trailer we were pulling broke off about 3 miles north of Cannon Falls, MN. We had to leave it at a welder's shop to get welded. We have to do a road trip to Cannon Falls to pick it up now that we are back in MN. The guy who welded it said he put some heavier plating on the tongue and said it will never break again. I rented a Uhaul trailer to haul the Wing back to MN but at least I got it home!

IT WORKED!! IT WORKED!! Thank You JeffR for the helpful pdf on how to upload photos. I have the pdf for future reference which I will more than likely need next time.

I don't have a good pic of my latest S'Wing, but here is a pic of my prior one. The photo was taken on Hwy93 between Golden and Boulder. The exhaust is a GPR I modified to be to more level in mounting. Unfortunately this scoot become a hood ornament on a '72 Mustang (as did I).

Liked your Pic so much I put it at the top of the forum.
We've never had a Silverwing with striping like that
Very interesting.
My Photoshopped bike has been at the top long enough.

BJ,

Don't believe "Hi Yo". We used his picture once and he made a lot of money from the forum for his pic. Dan told me many times he sent "Hi Yo" the $1,000 a month fee Dan pays to the owner of the bike used on the main page.

Dan, did you ever get your Swing back on the road?
If not, did you replace it yet with another?

No point in my doing a picture. Apart from the backrest it's pretty standard, Black with chrome mirrors(off a Burgman 400) and Givi airflow screen. That's it. No Bells and no whistles. Smile Sorry, there is a bell, a friendship bell.

That's my commute every day to work - back and forth on 93. The evening commute tends to keep me on my guard - people drive like $#@! on the stretch that slows down at the lights coming into Golden, going south. I had a full size pickup get rammed from behind by a lady that "didn't see" my pickup stopped at the light there in her lane of traffic (nevermind the light was also red). Fortunately me being in a truck and her being in a car meant she totaled her car while paying for little more than touch-up paint on my trailer hitch. I'm glad I wasn't on the Wing that day (an unusual event).

Yes, Hwy93 is a beautiful road, but crap, it's getting dangerous. So much impatient traffic. I am sure you heard of the motor cop that was killed a few months back. Such a waste.

I like to ride down to Woody's Pizza for lunch on occasion. I also like to hit coal creek canyon up to the peak to peak hwy. So much good riding........

It's about 3" or so taller than the standard shield which is nice. Less bugs that way.

There are a lot of nice looking Wings on this forum. Mine is pretty much standard with the exception of the GiVi trunk and the Clearview windshield. I don't know but to me it looks black but the specs say it's silver. I always thought that silver was pretty much the color of coins but being Polish I could be wrong. And usually am...

I've lurked around a lot and enjoyed this forum. Lots of help. Thought I'd share a shot of my brother as we rode both our Silverwings coast to coast in 2005. He road the Silver and I had the Maroon. We had a blast and the SW's were awesome.

Trailer hitch custom made by Joe Wolfe.
We rode at 60 mph and got 55+ mpg on most fill ups. Got the most (62 mpg) crossing the salt lake going east.
Worst was 44 mpg when we broke our 60 mph rule and raced an 18 wheeler who harassed us at the NM welcome center saying our scooters weren't legal and couldn't do the min. speed limit.  cheers

Joe is a great guy.  
Met him after a Honda Hoot. Went to his house.
Purchased a cruise control from him and he installed it.
He was one of the first in the Silverwing community to do
Trailer hitches, Cruise Controls, freeway pegs, and nitrous.

With that trailer having the aerodynamics of a brick you got great mpg!
Any other info on trailer'd be great.Weight,cargo and how it pulled.Trailers fascinate me.

I believe the mpg was due to low steady speed.
Went to Lowe's, bought the plastic box, bought an axle from a skidoo trailer, one inch tubing for the frame. Got the trailer light kit at Walmart.
Then brother found axle in a neighborhood yard and got his free. He used a plastic barrel found on side of the road to cut fenders. He bought the wheels at Walmart.
I don't know the weight, but it is very light. He had a flat just outside L.A. and we picked it up(still loaded), turned it upside down on top of mine and carried it to a shop for a new tire. I stayed on the shoulder of the expressway till the exit. I wish I had taken a picture of that!!!!!!!
Here are some other photos if you care to see it with the Silverwing:
My Silverwing Pics
And here are some with the same trailer on my Burger with yet another Joe Wolfe hitch:
Burgman with trailer
I think Joe still makes trailers and sells them made with the Rubbermaid 50 gallon boxes. We made ours after looking at his design.

edit: Forgot to add that I cut a section out of the boat trailer axle to make it more narrow.. I can go get any additional pics or measurements if you wish.

Joe used a wire welder to attach to upper frame. Had to remove side tupperware. Looking under the fender can't see the frame top. One thing to remember if welding , check with your insurance to verify coverage. Bolt on hitches are no problem, but some companies companies want additional premium if any welding done. I've never removed the tupperware myself. I'll have another look and see if I can get a shot that is decent under the fender.

Thanks Dale,
the funny thing is there was only one deciding factor that day that made us buy those boxes....instead of buying Joe's trailer...4 cup holders in the lid. Great for road side stops and snacking. Turned out better than we expected.

Really nice picture Mudnman !!

Please tell me where you found the cup holder or its manufacturer. I've been looking for something like this that might be anchored by the screw located at the lower area of the handle bar cover.
