Yep, the Lemon Law is the next thing on the agenda. I will be digging out all the work orders and parts orders and constructing a time line, then will submit a request as required and we'll take it from there. Thanks, CD, for taking the time to reply and make suggestions to resolve the issues. You're right...every manufacturer produces lemons. I have no way of knowing how often such lemons are coming out of the Piaggio factory, other than the positive anecdotal info you've provided and the negative anecdotal info I've received from other sources like Warney and others, not to mention my own personal experience.
It is what it is, but I've been burned enough, I think.
Dom, I'm seriously thinking about a newer Burgman 400 or the Kymco People 300 GTi. Also, if I could find a good used Yamaha Morphous, I might be up for something like that. I'm in no hurry. The right bike at the right price will come along at the right time...meanwhile, it's a good comfort having a great machine like the SWing to carry me forward...
