Swingarm?

I was just wondering what a swingarm is/does? thanks

Guess I should change my name, not a poser anymore.

it's the part that holds your rear tire... some bikes have single sided swing arms such as the Agusta MV but most have double sided... here's a pic... I circled the swing arm

Yeah, if only I could afford one.

Sorry to say, neither of the VFR's are mine.
