First off, you know darn well, comparing that big GS and an FXR is apples and oranges. Two different ways of accomplishing the same thing.
As for the swingarms, what information are you after?
Pretty much already answered. Lighter, stronger and in the case of my Duc, more durable.
Overkill? Absolutely. But, you denying the qualities they bring to the table...
