Love, that is what I'm feeling for my Swing after getting used to riding her. When I first started riding it felt weird not to have my foots on pegs, hand on a clutch and shifting. I'm used to that now and what is so cool to me is how smooth overall it is to ride. I'm also impressed with the acceleration although it's not as zippy at higher speeds as a regular motorcycle but that is to be expected from a scooter. This bike is so much fun to ride around town and splits lanes so well in traffic.

The pros I see are the under seat storage, smoothness of the ride and ease of operation. I never thought I would be excited to have a scooter on the freeway but my Swing has changed all that. The cons would be not having the ability to manually drop the gear for more power, the light weight although it seems to handle winds fairly well from what I can tell and the location of the rear view mirrors. My last bike was a Honda ST1300 so that gives you an idea of where my comparisons come from.

I've had mine for over three years and I still get a twitch in that left foot from time to time. I learned not to pull in the "clutch" very quickly. Smile You might want to do a search on mirror extenders to see if that helps with your mirror placement.

Haakon, I don't think I welcomed to the forum so welcome. You will love the mirror extenders you will see behind yourself instead of your shoulders.
Hi Yo, you and I joined at the same time and you have 1395 posts. I try to help when I can but you are a busy man. Thank you for all help you offer.

Welcome Haakon! Sound like a new convert for sure Laughing

One thing that amazes me... After a year and 8300 miles on my 2012 I still look for excuses to get on and RIDE; even for a short time... I am not saying I didn't feel this way with newly acquired motorcycles, just that the feeling never lasted this long!!! Ride on!
