2005 Honda Silverwing 582cc
Kelly blue book for $2900, they seem to have the best of the scooter options and at a reasonable price. Piaggio may be better, but you pay for it in parts, and Nobody beats Honda on parts. I could get a SWing at half price of a MP3 Piaggio 500cc, and maintenance /tires on those cost ( but yeah, I admit that they are much cooler - but you pay for it.)
Anyway, it looks like a good 2nd bike until I get my BMW running, rather than losing economies of scale in a rush job to get it running. Vs for the expressways and profiling, and the sliverwing for slumming and backup: sounds like a good pair of vehicles in SO CA. Then I could fix the beemer up and sell it: it's a great bike, but would require more attention than I have. Lol, once you go JAP, you never go back
