I've had a 2006 FSC600A for about 4 years now, just decided to join this site.
What a great tourer the SWing is! I've been all over Ontario, New York state and New England...furthest trip was to the coast of Maine...2600km return.
I've made a few mods...increased the preload on the forks and changed to 15w oil, upgraded the battery to 14ah, installed a windscreen extender (a product designed for BMW m/c's) and added a high quality throttle lock for those longer trips. Also made some fork seal protectors to extended the life of the fork seals by reducing the wear from dirt on the fork legs.
I'm retired, 74 yrs young, and looking forward to many years on Winging it!

Brian, welcome to the site. You are not far from the Maritimes, and if you are planning to ride here, give me a heads-up. I live in Saint John, NB.
Plenty of knowledgeable owners and riders here to help you with anything related to SWinging.
