I rode my 11' Swing home yesterday and some how it just kept running right past my street and on to Oracle, a town about 25 miles away. It has a mind of its own. Riding and motoring were effortless. The mirrors were clear and the hand grips were not buzzy. Wind deflection was nice considering the narrow profile.

Today, Top (scooter name) and I rode a nice 80 miler and I measured the mileage - 56 mpg, I am amazed. My speed was around 60. I will soon have the 300 miles recommended by Honda for break in and will then go on the freeway at 75mph. The twin is amazingly smooth running as it the rubber band set up. I like it a lot and will soon tour somewhere.

Wow, 56 mpg ! That is really good. You will be amazed at how it can go 75 mph all day long on the highway without sweating. Have you thought of an aftermarket windshield? If you like the stock one you may be able to get away with a Laminar Lip which is much cheaper. I had to get an aftermarket shield since I sit kind of high. Keep us informed as you put more miles on it.

Spread that gas consumption out over a few gallons of gas to make the rest of us who get 45 mpg feel a little better, ok?

Nice Grey!  Glad you are having fun with it.  My 2012 get 55 plus MPG consistently, not sure why but Honda may have tweeked something in the later years because few will do this.

As to touring with it, I have three over 1000 mile trips on mine and it does fine so do not be afraid to take off and GO.

In fact if you want a ride buddy...  :lol!:
