I have just purchased a 2009 Silverwing and love it already!! I've been a motorcyclist for many years with a variety of motorcycles over the years. My first bike was a Honda 450 Rebel, then a 1977 Goldwing, then a new 1996 Honda Pacific Coast, next was a 1996 Honda Goldwing, next a 1998 Honda Shadow 1100 Tourer, then a new 2005 Honda Goldwing that I triked in 2006. Just sold that bike in April of this year with 150456 miles, all put on by me. I have traveled all over this great country of ours on that bike, rode it in all but 12 states. Just decided to retire that bike and do something different. I considered another Pacific Coast and a Silverwing. Decided on the Silverwing, hands down. I am looking forward to putting some miles on this sweet ride! I have briefly read some of the posts on this forum and see there is a wealth of good information on here. Looking forward to learning more about these amazing Silverwings!
