I've had my SWing for all of a week now, and I find myself looking for any opportunity to ride. "Oh, my mother in law needs computer help? Count me in!!"

I told my wife yesterday that I was going through withdrawals because I had gone two whole days without riding, and was possibly looking at two more.

I'm at the office today, but I'm just waiting for the day to be over so I can get home and pull out my scoot.

Is this normal? Kinda feels like one of those, "If this is wrong, I don't wanna be right" kind of things.

You experience sounds like a perfectly normal response to Swing ownership.

Trying to avoid riding in the rain (for now), plus I often have to pick up my two kids from my wife's office, and I can't do that on my scoot. Sad

But it's OK; I'm about to go get my fix for the day...

I know how you feel. I bought mine to ride to work to save money on gas and miles on the car since I have been working 7 days a week for a while. The more I rode, the more I realized I liked it. It is therapy on 2 wheels, I ride mine whenever I don't have to take the car.

Chris I have had my 09 silverwing for a week now, and like you I have a need to ride. I have had a few bike, but when I got my Reflex I new I would need a Silverwing someday. I have been on this site for a few years reading and learning. I live in Damascus, hope to meet you someday and ride.

your urge to ride may begin to wain after 40 years or so, but I'm not feeling that way yet.

Well whaddya know--another Oregonian! Got some friends who live out there too, about a mile off the 212. Nice area, as yet untouched by the urban sprawl. Some fun roads to ride too, I'm sure. Smile

Very comforting. My father-in-law (a Harley man through and through) has been riding since '63, and I think he still enjoys it as much as I do.

Once you get on two wheels, seems that's what is calling you ALL THE TIME!! I am grounded for a few days due to heart surgery (yes, only a few days!) and I miss it already!! Crying or Very sad I REALLY miss my Swing (crashed last year) Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad but any two wheels is a good two wheels! Smile

I just got my first powered two-wheeler in April - 2009 Silverwing (bought it from a little old lady, really!). I'm a 66yo grandfather of 9, and just completed the MSF Basic Rider Course for my cycle endorsement.

I am doing a scoo-mute to work of about 25 miles one way - I'm still working - and so far I haven't missed a day, and when I get home I have to go out and ride for the fun of it! There's a couple twisty places on the way to work and I find myself laughing out loud at the exhilaration of it all! 2200 miles so far and lovin' it!
':lol!:'
Hating the thought of Wisconsin winter! Wish I had done this long ago, but then there weren't these cool scooters to ride.

Oh, and the gas savings are nice too.

Chris: I don't think there will be any "waining." Once the bug has bitten, well ... it's like a 'chigger', it gets under your skin. I'm 72 and loving my 2002 SWing w/Danson trike more and more each day. Just got it last Tuesday (6/26). I've had two wheel conveyances for half a century.
