Certainly, why not? I will bet there are many Silverwing owners in here too.

The "Boss" made an "other bikes" section a while ago. A GL500 is a baby wing afterall.. so I don't see any reason why a Silverwing riding member wouldn't be a member in full standing :-)
I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.

Hi Brad

Used to have a CX500 back in the eighties. A Silverwing was way out of my league back then. The wife and I took it all over France and the near continent until my daughter arrived. Happy days. At least you don't have any cambelts to worry about with that old push rod twin.

My wife rides with me in a lot of groups. She started with a Honda magna 500, moved up to a Yamaha 1100 Virago, and now rides a VTX 1300.

Yes Silverwings count!

Silverwing's are sure in the family. I had a 81 Silverwing for 25 years. I just now have replaced it with my 94 Aspencade. It took me all of about 1 week to sell the Silverwing. Just cannot beat the "Wings"

Safe Riding

Nothing wrong with SilverWings, Valks, and any other bike here, I think this is a good group where we all can share, nudge each other, and be friendly.

She better be ready when we give her all your secrets, lol.
