I returned Monday from a weekend trip into the Ozarks. I camped @ Sam Baker state park in Missouri and used that as my launching point for the rides. It was approx. 800 miles round trip. The Swing performed flawlessly with a mix of interstate, two lane highway & back country cruising. MPG was between 45-55.
The highlight of the trip for me was US 160 between MO highways 19 & 21 through parts of the Mark Twain National Forest. Wow what a ride! cheers Living in Central IL I am not used to twists, turns and elevation changes such as that. The Swing maybe turned a LITTLE slower into some of the tighter turns than my DRZ used to. It could be a case of me getting used to my new machine as well. If you're ever in the area, please give that stretch a try. You won't be sorry.
The GIVI airflow is a huge improvement over the stock windscreen and the sheepskin butt pad made life easier also. I love my new scoot! Between the commuting and light touring I do I feel this is the perfect machine for me. I only wish I would have bought one sooner.
A picture of an overlook along MO highway 34 outside of Piedmont. I would've taken more pictures, but I was busy twisting the throttle. Wink

Bob and I were down in that area last Sept on the way to the STO rally. We really enjoyed MO 19 from Cuba down to 160. We rode 160 west towards Springfield on to Eureka Springs, AR. Lots of great roads. Down there.

We are planning on Going to the BMW Falling Leaf Rally in Oct. that Ian that far from the roads you were on.

Glad your enjoying your Swing.

That was really the only bike photo I took. The majority of the others were of Ft Davidson historic site. I was enjoying the twisties WAY too much to stop and snap a picture. I'll try and take more pics on my next trip.
