HI. My name is Bruce Wilson, and I live in Charleston, WV.

A couple of years ago I got a little putt-putt 50cc scooter, which was fine for bopping around town on, but the range was too limited---and it was too slow once one got out of town where the speed limit was over 45 mph.

I was going to get a 125 or 250 cc, but all my motorcycle friends said that I'd outgrow that too quickly, and I should get at least a 400cc. I did some research and it came down to between a Suzuki Burgman and a Honda Majestic.

I got a small windfall; most of it I put in my retirement account, but I decided to use some of it as an early birthday present to myself. The Burgman was a little more expensive, but had a somewhat better reputation, and the dealer had one in stock, whereas the Honda dealer would have had to order one.

I just got it back from the 600 mile checkup, which it passed.

I'm very new at all this, so please forgive me if I ask questions that seem silly.

Welcome, you will find the Burgman to be very reliable, just do the regular maintenance and you should have excellent service from the bike!
Ride safe! :thumbup:

Welcome from a fellow WV rider! You're really going to enjoy the nimble ride of the 400 on the twisting back roads through the mountains! :thumbup:

I'd say take a ride to the Kanawah State Forest through Louden Heights to really get a feel for her!

I have relatives in Lexington. Perhaps sometime I'll surprise them by showing up on the Burgman!
