Welcome! You'll find this a great bunch of Swing riders who really do help out when needed. I am sure once you get into your Swing again and are able to get a new key so you can ride the thing, I'm sure you'll have a blast!! They are just so darn much fun!!! Smile

Yes, less than 3,000 miles on this 2002 SW. I bought from someone storing for a lady who got it in a divorce, and she didn't ride, so it sat in a garage. Luckily, the garage owner took it for a spin every couple of months, just to keep it in running order.

Welcome!

You got the fastest color.

Red bikes have always been my favorite. When I got out of the military in 1970, I had my heart set on a red CB450. That summer, there was a dock strike in Long Beach and dealers couldn't get any bikes or parts.

The local dealer called around and there was not a red CB450 to be had in Ohio. He located a red CB750 and had it transferred to his dealership. I drove up to look at it and bought it for $1425. It turned out to be a great motorcycle.

Unfortunately for me, I got a deal on a 2005 Silverwing which was gray (Titanium color). It is a great scooter and I can live with the color.

The gentlemen on this site are very helpful and they can answer any question that you might have on your scooter. You can also use the search function for service help. There are great pictorial step-by-step instructions on any service issue you might want to try to tackle yourself.

Ride safe!

I have a 2008 SW, love riding it, I also have a 2005 GW1800 trike but by far the SW is more fun riding.

The SW has GPS, Trunk, Backrest and Cruise control also a taller windshield.

I'll post a picture soon. The SW has 6,000 mi on it.

The trike has 93,000. Both were bought new off the show room.

I've been riding since 1966.

Also wired for Gerbing warm weather gear.

My apologies for overlooking the fairer sex.

I have to admit that I see a lot more women riding motorcycles and scooters now than I used to. My wife surprised me after I started riding again in 1999 by announcing that she had decided that she was going to get her m.c. license. We have been riding the backroads together on our scooters for the past three years. It is one of life's simple pleasures.

I am sure that women contribute on this site as well.

Ride safe!

It was a 1958 Allstate Highlander that was made for Sears by Cushman.

I earned the money for it but my dad had to buy it (I think it was a title thing.) from the Harley dealer in Akron, Oh for $125 in 1962.

I parked it in my dad's barn when I bought a 1966 Honda 305 SuperHawk and I don't know what happened to it. It would be worth more than $125 today.

Ride safe!

Honda is bringing out a retro CB1100 for 2013 based on the late 70's DOHC CB750
Four Cylinders with Air/Oil cooling and chain drive.

I might go for one if the price is within reason

djteske,

Welcome to the site. You have a very low mileage bike so you may want to check all the fluids, the tires and also the belt. Also, on the 2002 model you should check the front fender screws often. There was a couple of people who had the screws fallout and the fender went down into the front tire and they had an accident. Not to alarm you but just check the screws often and maybe use 'locktight', if that is how it is spelled. They corrected this on the 2003 or 2004 model so it won't happen.

Again, not to alarm you. You have a great bike and you should have a lot of fun on it. Also, if you do your own work check out the "pictorial' section . I posted quite a few pictorials here and others have done so too and it saves a lot of money.

I saw a photo of one in a UK bike mag today and it said for release in Europe and Australia next year, no mention of the USA.

Honda does show it on their website over here along with their other new
for 2013 models but without a listed price . Maybe they are just teasing us but I prefer the retro styling compared to the crotch rockets and Harley copies all the Japanese manufacturers now seem to have gone to.
