I bought this bike new in 2006 after a test ride in Laconia. I had never even heard of Swift. But one ride and I was hooked. The 117 has gobs of low and mid-range torque. The bike runs as good as it looks. The attention it gets is unbelievable! My wife says riding this bike makes me into an instant... read more
I bought this bike new in 2006 after a test ride in Laconia. I had never even heard of Swift. But one ride and I was hooked. The 117 has gobs of low and mid-range torque. The bike runs as good as it looks. The attention it gets is unbelievable! My wife says riding this bike makes me into an instant rock star on the road. People wave, they stop to chat, little kids give the thumbs up. The bike is a looker. But it's no trailer queen. At Daytona Bike Week last March (2007) I rode all over Florida and logged 1200 miles in the process. My only complaint is having to pull off onto to the shoulder to wait for my 2 buddies to catch up on their Road Kings! All in all this is a turn key showbike (I have 4 trophies and hardly changed a thing... mirrors and seat upholstery, that's about it) that happens to be as dependable as my Road King.

Bought the '06 Swift Bar Chopper about 2 months ago and have logged 1200 miles so far. Both the 500 and 1000 mile maintenance were performed with zero problems and 100% fun. This bike turns heads everywhere - like you are leading a parade. Everything on the bike is top quality - fit, finish, options, paint, parts, etc. Research the track record, including warranty work, of the "other" major chopper mfgrs. and you'll find that they're 1.) In the shop half the time with problems. 2.) All have had a recall of some sort. And 3.) don't have a warranty that makes sense for the cost and SUPPOSED quality they tote. You will find that this is not the case with the Swift. I can't see how "others" stay in business with the type of results I read. Swift, however, has a blemishless track record and solid warranty record (I wouldn't know though and hopefully I'll never need to know). I cannot think of a negative thing to write at the moment, other than I have to keep my grin very small to avoid gtting all the bugs stuck in my teeth!!!!
