    Isn't this the same as our Zuma 125 with a different body on it?

    I never thought of pulling a trailer behind my SWing!

    Tell me about the trailer and the bike hitch...also, tell me how the SWing handles the added weight. Would like to know more...

    When I first bought a trailer there were no commercially available hitches for the SWing so, I rode to Canada to buy a monogo trailer ( http://www.monogo.com/Anglais/laRemorque/remorque.php ) and the owner, Michael built and installed a hitch. That trailer is the one in this photo

    The monogo is a 1 wheel trailer and is very light. You don't even feel it behind the bike. It is small so you can take it in a motel room with you if you'd like.

    There are now hitches available on the net and I think the one on the bike pulling the 2 wheel trailer may have been one of those. I can't recall the name of the company that makes them.

    That trailer is made from pieces of my trailer in a bag. When I bought the trailer I had them make up shortened axels. I then bought the car top carrier on ebay and bolted it on top. You can see more photos at the TIAB site here
    http://trailerinabag.com/photos/scooters/index.html

    The car top carrier is much larger so can handle a lot more stuff. I put tools in it, a tent, other camping gear including a nice folding chair etc. It weighed a lot more than the monogo but the SWing pulled it easily. I'd cruise at 75 mph on the interstate with no problem. I went to empty roads and tried panic stops to see how it would react and there was no problem at all. I guess pulling the trailer was actually a lot less stressful than having a 150lb passenger. That's the story.

    +1 !

    How is the shifting? My Symba shifting was clunky.
    I would love to have one with an automatic. It just looks like FUN!

    The Scout has a dual clutch. It makes the shifting much smoother.

    Thanks for the trailer info...didn't mean to hijack the thread, but saw it and had to ask...

    Looks like I'll have to look into this for the proposed tour north this summer...

    Pretty excited about the touring capability of the 250 now that it has luggage capacity. I posted a couple in a new thread but wanted to share one here too:

    Baltos e-bay find. He was less than happy when he found the green paint had been applied by brush.
