I just bought a 2004 Swing today, I have had all kinds of bikes from Harley's to Honda's. Never had a scooter b4. I've had wrist problems the last year and found it hard to pull in the clutch, Thought I would have to give up riding until a friend was telling me about scooters. Long story short I am impressed

Welcome to the forum!
I know exactly what you're talking about! I made the transition from a stupidly heavy BMW K100LT to a Burgman 650 a few years ago and laughed all the way round on my test drive! Sadly, I parted ways with the Burgervan and after almost 2 years off, bought a Piaggio MP3 500 on a whim, part exchanged it for a Honda VFR1200F (!) and had to get rid of it after less than a year due to the painful riding position - my right hand would be numb after 30 minutes!
So, I made the most sensible move a few weeks back and got an '07 Swing.
Infinitely more comfortable!
And better leg room for my 6' frame than the Suzuki had.
Smiles all round. I can actually go and take a ride just for pure pleasure now!
I don't think you'll find a better pool of knowledge than this place!

Welcome to the forum from a rider in Cincinnati !
I also sold my big cruiser and am enjoying the silverwing.
Someday us locals should pick a point and meet up.

Welcome, I live in Fairborn. I downsized from my Goldwing due to strength and age issues. I now have 4 scooters: Silverwing, Reflex, Helix, and my antique Salsbury. I'm thinking that two of the Hondas need to go, but I like them all. Storage is too difficult.
