My friend and I just about live on our Swings, even though winter is just around the corner he and I will still ride as long as there is no ice or snow on the roads, which does happen alot here. We have riden when it was below zero.
My friend had 48,000 on his and I just bought mine last Friday and have 500 on it.
Are we riding too much? How many miles should we exspect on a Swing?

Just for sh_ts and giggles open ScooterTrap’s site and scroll to the bottom of the page.
Matt keeps a rolling list to show others the longevity of modern scooters.
Take note that the Silverwing is second only to another Honda
As far longevity for the Honda brand, I have seen the GL1500 & GL1800 with over 300k on the clock
