Hi,

I have been riding Scooters and Motorcycles for 50 years.  Just purchased a 2009 Silver Wing.  I currently have a 2013 CanAm Spyder RT-S, 1984 BMW R100CS, and a restored/custom Vespa p200E.  My wife has a 2004 Suzuki Burgman 400 with a Tow-pac trike conversion (training wheels).  My intent is to either put a Danson kit (training wheels) or a sidecar conversion on the Silver Wing.  I'm 68 years young and am having issues with my legs/back while moving a 2 wheeler in/out of the garage or putting one up on the centerstand.  The Spyder is over kill for riding with my wife and I have been thinking of a Silver Wing for a long time, hence the Silver Wing purchase.  I have used this forum as a guest to gain enough information to determine the Silver Wing was the right scooter for me and my ultimate modifications.  Looking forward to being a forum member!

Thanks,
Frank

Thanks for the links model28a!  Once the snow starts here in Colorado I will be going through the scooter top to bottom.  I have ordered the factory manual for it.  Until then I have done the basic safety checks and will ride/enjoy.

Pastor Ron I have investigated/considered Hannigan sidecars, Danson trikes, Texas Sidecars (out of business as of July 2015), Trigg Trikes, and the GT3.  I like the concept of the GT3 but it needs some body panels to better integrate with the scooter.  I'm now leaning towards the Trigg as a trike based on my research and the integrated appearance.  Still waiting for Hannigan to contact me on adding one of their sidecars.  I have wanted a sidecar rig for over 30 years but think the trike may be a better choice.  I was looking at a new Ural for awhile but had a concern about quality and price.  A SilverWing with a sidecar or trike conversion has more power, cruise speed and quality than the Ural!

oldf, Have you looked into the Yelvington trike kit? They make a body kit for their trike, although it's not cheap.

Model28a - I really liked the look and design concept of the Yelvington but as I did research I found that Harleywld1 on this forum had issues with Trinity Trike and the TrikeTalk forum dropped Trinity/Yelvington as a site sponsor in Jan 13.  Yelvington may have corrected the issues that Trinity had but I'm not willing to take a risk with the amount of money required to purchase a Yelvington kit.
