Honda Silver Wing

I saw one of at the dealer where we bought my Honda Metropolitan scooter. Wow is not your daddy’s scooter:

A that will cruise at 80 and 100 mph and has ABS and PGM-FI? The build quality is Honda) superb.

Anyway to a short story LONG, I my KLR in on one of these. I really seldom the KLR for what its intended purpose is, Riding. Basically I take trips on street and once in a a dirt road or two.

Never felt comfortable off-road solo as the KLR is too heavy for old guy to lift up if it decides to lay down! Ask me how I this. Not to say the KLR is a bad machine it is great for its I just finally realized I needed (wanted) something (read comfortable).

For dirt I have my two CT’s and will have a CT long after I riding bigger machines.

Unhappy guy!

Got the new baby to Wickenburg!

Off to Congress, AZ for a look at Rock!

Some of you may recognize Anyway had a cold drink and headed back home.

The had 0 miles on the clock when I it and by Saturday night had 103 miles on it! of power (50 hp) but very controllable ie not fast like some rockets. The CVT takes a bit of getting to but it is virtually the same as Susan’s so was expecting that.

The ride is much smoother, and more comfortable over all the KLR. But again they are for different purposes.

Yesterday I to take the ‘Wing off-road. On a road that is LOL. a road behind Vulture here in Wickenburg, put nearly 3 on dirt, through gravel, pack, rocks and some patches.

The big bird did well even in the the weight is very low and the tires small (14 inch) are wider on the KLR so I had no problems. The ground clearance is the here but for most dirt I feel it will work for me!

King of the Hill

Damn, now I to wash it.

I used to make fun of until about 5 years ago in Mexico when I rented a scoot with over 20K on it and had a tooling around the island.

One other plus is Susan was disappointed that we couldn’t double on the KLR, with the that is not a problem, the seat is set up for two people. Should be fine for rides or day-trips. Not enough for two-up touring but for just me hold me back.

The Silver is not cheap! MSRP is $9270 USD but comes with ABS etc and it is a HONDA all.
