Just wondering what everybody's recommendations are for shopping for Swing accessories and also sites to STAY AWAY from?

Thanks for your input.

If first impressions are any good, I've had good luck with Motorcycle Superstore.

I don't think there is a a single shop where I can buy all the stuff I have on my Silver Wing. It's came from various places at home and from Germany but it's internet searches that's sourced it for me. I try to fit stuff that's easy to remove and use on my next maxi. My next purchase is a lockable mount for my Garmin sat nav.

Buying stuff from the UK and Europe means I won't be shafted for the tax and import duty I'd be liable to ordering stuff from the USA.

I've had good experiences with Motorcycle Superstore also. Plus you can have tires sent directly to a "preferred service provider" - hopefully a shop you know in your area.

Thanks for your input. I am now on my 3rd (yes three) Swing. Just looking for some new places to buy some accessories. I found a place in Philadelphia called Revzilla. Ordered a Givi windshield from them and a few things from Dennis Kirk.

I've always had good luck buying knick knacks and paddy whacks off ebay for my swing.

I buy most of my things from Ebay. If I see something i know i will need, at some point,and the price is right then i will buy.An example, was an Air Filter for the Silverwing usually priced around £24, I bid on one and got it for £16 including P&P. I just bought a new Wing and won't need it till 12,000mls but, I now have one "in stock." Smile
