Well today after filling up for gas and paying I return to my bike and find what appeared to be an older gentleman parked in his truck staring at my Burgman. As I approached he started asking questions. Said he had read all the reviews on the machine but had never seen one up close. He preceeded to tell me that he used to ride a vtx1800 and a CBR929. He then mentioned to me that he was no longer able to ride these bikes as he has terminal cancer and the Chemo has left him weak( he wasnt that old maybe 50 but the chemo had aged him poorly)
I could see the glimmer in his eyes with the possibility of riding again. He asked to sit on my bike and of course I obliged. He liked the way it fit and felt and asked every possible question he could think of . I informed him that it also came in a 400 which is about 100lbs lighter. It would probably be more suitable to him at this time if he were thinking on trying it.
I told him about the forum here and I hope he checks us out. It was good to see the spark that the Burgman created in this mans eyes. It gave him hope and it seemed to give him life. I rode away wishing that I had offered to take him for a ride. He was driving a big old Chevy truck. Like my signature says.
4 wheels move the body, 2 wheels move the soul

Good luck my cancer friend , ride safe.

Flying is one of those dreams that I havent chased yet. I think I would like to start with an ultralight or something. It's time to move up from radio controlled flying to the real thing.
