I bought my 2007 Silverwing new. I drive it to work every day (100kms round trip) I am 5'9" 270lbs and my wife is 170lbs. The bike handles us both easily on the highway.
I bought the bike with 5kms and have 13,000 on it. I average 4.9liters per 100 kms or 58-62 mpg. The bike is nimble enough for city driving, yet heavy enough not to be blown around too much on the highway.
The best rides this bike gives are the long country drives. You have a comfortable seat, lots of storage, easy handling and awesome mileage.
Downsides to the design are the center stand which I needed to replace once under warrenty and will need to replace again soon because the metal is weak and the part you step on to lift the bike bends. The windshield could be a bit higher to block more wind.
Overall my rating on this bike is 9.5 / 10
