Just bought my 2007 Swing with only 1450 miles on it.  Have ridden it about 200 miles since purchase.  Looks like it will get about 53 mpg.  I have a Kymco Movie 150 as well which is a hoot to ride.  Having ridden since 1965 these are my first scoots.  I also have a M2 Buell Cyclone that I hate to sell but my aging hips can't handle that riding position any more.  The Swing still feels a little ackword to me especially at low speeds.  At 55-60 mph it's very comfortable.  Looking forward to riding this summer and hope to travel the Blue Ridge Parkway to Roanoke soon.  If any other riders near by drop me a note.  I like this forum

Greetings and welcome from o-HI-o you have found a very good site with helpful folks. Getting use to the slow speed handling and the dual brake system will come with a little practice, I went from a Gold Wing to pure Silver.

Sounds like you found a great bike! Yes, the aging hips can become quite uncomfortable on standard bikes. I don't know if they make Mick-0-Pegs for the Buell, but it's something you might look into. They will in most cases let your legs stretch out.

Mt440, you have found the best place to hang out. I got my 2007 with low limes too. I reckon I'm getting about the same mileage. Great bike, I'm sure you'll like it as much as your Buell. I like my VT1100 once I'm moving but it's a pig to move around the driveway.
Jay.

This is my first ABS bike.  Found out real quick not to squeeze the left brake to hard.  Thanks for the encouraging replys.
