About two weeks ago I took a ride on my 1100 Honda sabre and found myself in Daytona trading in my motorcycle for a used 2003 silver 650 burgman. Ireally diden't know anything about the burgman. Thank god for this web site. I heard good things about the silverwing and the burgman two days prior to my impulsive purchase. I had my choice between a 2002 silverwing with 3000 miles on it or the 2003 650 burgman with 830 miles on it. 5995.00 for the silverwing or 6295.00 for the burgman. The salesman said either one would be fine, however he really thought that I would enjoy the burgman more. I found myself riding the burgman home. The burgman still has about 30 days factory warranty left on it. I really like this scooter. I ride it everyday,even if I don't have someplace to go. I've had it up to 100 mph with my big butt on it and it still had more to give. I'm 6'2'' 240 lbs. HATE THE WINDSHIELD. Took it off until I have it cut down. HATE THE RATTLE AT IDLE. Iguess I will learn to live with it. With gas prices the way they are I think more people will be looking for an all around multi-purpose two wheeler. Too Much Fun.
