Just acquired a 2005 Burgman with low mileage from Interstate Cycles in Lake City, Fl. It is different from the sport bikes that I am used to but a whole lot of fun. Takes me back to the times I first started riding. Storage is phenonmenal and performance adequate for a 400cc single. I am having a little trouble not doing any thing with my feet. I had to watch getting too agressive, dragging the centerstand is a lot like dragging a cylinder on the old air cooled BMW's, gets the old adrenaline going. I am a native Floridian from the Daytona area and have ridden most of my life. Love performance machinery but the doctor's say I have to slow my pace a little and so I got the Burgman and now am trying to talk my brother into one. I find that I can ride the Burgman a lot longer in more comfort and get great gas mileage even at interstate speeds, but what it truly loves is the old two lane backroads of Florida. So now I try to plan trips with as little interstate riding as possible to enjoy the old Florida I grew up in. I do my own maintenance and have found everything pretty well straight forward, I do want to get the service manuel from the former owner to familiarize myself with the more intricate parts and pieces. I have found the Suzuki, by the way my first, to be a great machine for a retired gy with plenty of time on his hands.

Welcome! I too have an '05 400, great machine for running errands and just cruising around. Not much on speed record attempts, but still fast enough to get tickets! Check the "How To" section here for maintenance help. Enjoy and ride safe! :thumbup:

Congratulations on your new to you Burgman! I have an 05 400 as well, and it has treated me great the last 10 months and 6000 miles. My Speedo went down around 24k (a known issue, easy to fix) but aside from that it loves the road. Like yours, the two lane back roads are where it really shines.
