Hi, I'm Wayne...

I have a 2009 Burgman 650, black with led under body lighting and a stainless Yoshimura exhaust. Seat heater, BMC filter, NGK iridium plugs and a redesigned screen are coming to my scoot real soon.

I live in Dayton, OH, but am originally from Cairns, Australia. I moved here June 2011.

Hey Wayne, welcome to BUSA from sunny Los Angeles.

Sounds like a real nice bike. When did you get it? Miles on it? Years riding?

You will love this board and its wealth of knowledge. Ask about anything (except climate change) and you'll usually get an answer within a G'day. :cool:

Welcome Wayne,

I live south about 30 miles, on the north side of Cincinnati. Lots of Burgmans around here.

Hey Wayne - how could you leave lovely Cairns for Dayton :confused:

I spend my winters here and love it even in the wet season. This might bring back some memories for you

Would like to see pics of your 650 - sounds interesting.

Welcome Wayne, and congrats on the new scoot! Don't listen to MacDoc - Dayton's a great place, particularly if you love museums.

Welcome, My son lives up there too.
Hate the fact your winter has been so harsh this year.
Spring is coming along with riding weather soon.
Ride Safe and Have Fun.

Umm, it has about 47k miles on it. I've only had it. 1 year, but back home I rode modded 50cc scoots since about 2002.

I see you rode the Gillies :) fun road huh? A group of friends and I used to ride to the lookout half way up Kuranda range road and race back down. I almost put my scoot and myself over the edge doing that thanks to brake fade lol...

Pics? Umm sure :) but this was pre-yoshimura days :( I'll get some updated ones for the board when I pull her out of storage

Had nice 300k loop today up the Palmerston and the across to Mareeba and home.
Nice to be back riding - but I'm stiff - 5 months off and a wider ride

Oh so you're over there right now? I'm jealous... lol.

Have you discovered the pizza/sports bar on the esplanade in Cairns called rattle and hum? It's between the night market and the McDonald's. If you haven't go check it out, best pizza in cairns and it has the most creative men's room I've ever seen too lol
