Just wanted to chime in and thank everyone for letting me join this wonderful forum. I have been riding bikes for over 35 years and this is my first scooter bike. I bought this bike yesterday and it has 66k miles on it and runs like new (I Think, never had a new one Laughing). I also have a 21 KTM 390 adventure but may sell it now after discovering how much more fun this scoot is. I'm in the NC mountains next to Virginia so the country's most awesome riding is in my backyard and this scooter is going be so fun in it!! Im here on the forum to discover all the cool tips and tricks on how to get the best experience out of my scoot.

Welcome StixNC. I'm sure you'll find the SW a curious beast. It's the same as a regular bike but completely different!

Handles OK for a scoot, a fair bit of power and that lovely seat with the cave beneath it. Enjoy the ride and post any curiosities and questions you may have. I imagine that you've stopped moving your left foot to change gear by now?

Oh, and don't forget stamping your right toe down for the rear brake!

Yes the foot brake issue is the only thing that’s been giving me a fit,,lol. I actually had a 2018 Honda Africa Twin with a DCT so I am used to being without the shifter but not the foot brake but it’s growing on me. The only gripe I have is why haven’t I had one of these years ago😁
