Welcome tpetrone, Congratulations on the Swing I'm sure you'll grow to love that bike. So nice what your Hubby did with the presentation. Winter must be long gone in Tennessee and you have been riding quit some time now, my first ride was March 25th, still some snow around on the hills. How long have you been a rider, I would recommend a S
ourse especially if you are taking your 7yr son with you, you'll be surprised what you will learn. I have done a lot to my Swing and I'm sure you will do the same with yours given the chance. Good Luck and Happy Trails.

Welcome to the forum. Very nice presentation on the part of your husband. Where abouts in TN do you reside? This will factor into your question regarding foot pegs. See that thread for the answer.

Welcome to the site and I know you will love the SWing. You husband did a very good job as a present...with the roses and all. We have a lot of info on the site for modifications and what not, so if you run into any trouble please just ask. Please post some pics of your Swing and your husbands B650 in the Album section. And of course, post some ride stories with pics when you can. Again, welcome.
