Finally I can ride my new Honda Silverwing Scooter

Honda Silverwing

So yep at long last, I'm riding around on my Silverwing. Its been restricted from 600cc to about 400cc to fit with my 33bhp licence restriction. But even at two-thirds of its full power, its a true rocket on the road. Riding along windy dual carriageways like the A40 are a joy now and I can finally get out in front of the cars and superbikes like you've never seen before due to its automatic gears. Sarah also loves the bike and claims she will go down to Bristol on it if needed. I have not played with the power adapter yet (yes so I can charge my phone while riding) but I'm thinking about adding a USB adapter once I get the box on the back.
