hi, I just joined this forum to find out what other riders are up to and I am interested in industry news and other people's experiences and problems. My ride is a Honda Silverwing 600, which I bought 6 months ago after trying out some other scooters like 400 Burgman, 300 Honda Forza and an Aprilia Smax 300. At my age the maxi scooter suits me more than a "real" motorcycle, because of the relaxed riding position, the CVT transmission and the higher windshield. And the Silverwing has got more than enough power for my needs. I think I will be able to do most of the maintenance myself and will hopefully stick with it as long as I can handle the weight of it. It is a 2007 model, but has only got 12k on it and it runs just like a Honda should.
