Just for change.Mind elaborating on the main reason for this move?
I ordered the taller windshield and trunk mounting bracket from Honda; And then ordered a Bestem trunk. They should all be here next week.I have both a 2005 Burgman 650 and a 2014 Honda Forza 300.
I really like both. The Forza definitely need the taller winscreen to be comfortable above 45 MPH. The Forza is smooth and rides nice. I ride it on the CA Freeways at 75 MPH. I Put the GIVI tall windscreen on mine. The one thing I like better than the Burgman 650 is the Speedometer accuracy. I know when I am driving 75 MPH, it's correct and no guessing.
First of all, good to see a post from you. I'm not on here as much as I used to be, and from what I gather neither are you.
Good for you.......we've done a bit of bike changing since last Chris & I got together with you and Mary too.
Hope you enjoy your new rides. In addition to the grey 2011 650 we had back then, Chris now has a white 2012 too, and I've got an ST1100, just 'cos.
We've still got the 400, with the engine sorted, running sweet as a nut now, and it's given up smoking, too. All the healthier for it.
I am scheduled to sell the 400 to one of the guys who works for me this month, as he's loking for a good commuter, and since I've had the St Chris eventually got on it for a ride, and has now decided she wants a sport tourer too.
Got my eye on a Trophy SE, now I just need to work out how to pay for it!
We took the two 650's up to St Augustine weekend before last, that was a nice ride.
Anyway, hope you're both doing well, and enjoying your current rides. Drop me a line if you fancy doing a lunch one weekend.
My guess is the Forza is just a small thumper with a well engineered modern engine;off topic but why does the Forza and the CTX get so much better gas mileage than the burgman? Can it all be due to drag?
Changed the oil and filter today. 1 1/2 quarts of oil, and the exact same filter as the wife's CTX700 or my old Star 950 Tour. Job was done in 10 minutes; Nothing to remove to access the filter, fill, or drain bolt. I'm liking this little bugger.
I bought this 300 Forza because the wife really missed her 400 Burgman. Performance is very similar but the price difference is huge. We both enjoy driving this little bugger. It's fun...Same 10 minutes as the Burgman 400. Your Forza is a pretty bike. I don't see any advantage over the Burg 4 except maybe fuel mileage but that is based on a smaller engine and not riding very fast.
