I left N.E. Ia. on a 500 mi. trip to N. Mn Just got back. I now have 1150 mi. on the scooter. I just traded in my 1983 G-wing on a 2012 Swing. A few things that worked for me before I left. Bicycle no finger padded gloves that I had; comfortable; $9.00 at any bicycle shop. My gps and radar detector sat very nice on the brake fluid reservoirs; I stuck them on with black Velcro, and a rubber band for safety.

I tour and camp a lot as a bicyclist; so I grabbed my largest sleeping bag and bungee corded it to the passenger seat; very good back-rest.

Speaking of safety; Please note how much better you can see a cycle/scooter coming toward you with the high beam on. 50 years of riding and I've only had one person pull out on me. The high beam doesn't bother other drivers in daylight. Keep the high beam "ON". harley

This was a funny title, because "swinging" also refers to swapping partners for sex.
 
 
1.  Their are a number of people here that go "scamping" (a.k.a. scooter camping)
I'm sure they'll be happy to swap stories with you.
Also you can search for more info if you like.
 
 
2.  High beam on all the time may be visible, but it is still rude.  
There are a number of posts on auxiliary lighting here for cost effective ways for people to see you without you blinding them.
As for not bothering others in daylight, that's your impression.
You might have even asked a driver or two if it bothers them, but no one driver can speak for all.
The reason you are legally required to have a low beam is to avoid blinding others.
Its also the reason that daytime running lights on cars are low.
 
Enjoy the forum and enjoy your new Silverwing!
