Don't Laugh! I rode a Silverwing last night and I liked it. Yes, thats right I liked it. I brought it home to try it out and when I told my girl friend what I had brought home I thought she was going to be sick. After some convincing she came down to the garage to look at it and see if it was sufficient enough for her to be seen on (girlfriend is a snob of anything other than a sport bike). She decided to give it a try and was impressed with how comfortable it was.
We were going to meet some friends down town for dinner so I got a chance to see the acceleration of the Silver steed and suprisingly I gave a Lexus the taillights. We got to the restaurant and opened the seat to see what we could fit. To our amazement both of our helmets and gloves fit under the seat. We walked into the restaurant without any worry of where we were going to put our two wheel essentials.
This morning I thought I would see how fast I could get it going. In full tuck behind the windscreen the wing actually got up to 176kph. On a scooter!
I used $3.54 worth of fuel to go 70km. You do the math (current price is $1.12). This is the perfect commuter and for a night out without having to worry about finding a parking spot or a place to put your gear and lane splitting with a bit of style the silver wing can't be beat.
