My name is Max and live in Burlington, Iowa, I just got a Burgman 650 June 22, 2004
After 250 miles I think it may become my favorite ride. I hope the gas milage gets a little better though as I got only 42mpg on the first fillup.

I am 64 and have been riding for 40 years. My right hip has a little arthitis and I thought the scooter would be better for me getting on and off... I was right!
I hope to meet many of you fellow owners on the road.

I have owned many bikes and presently have:
1978 BMW R80/7
1998 Morto Guzzi V11EV
2000 Moto Guzzi Quota
2004 Burgman 650

Max,

Welcome to the forum! Your fuel mileage should improve after several tanks of gas. I run 87 octane in my 650 and have been averaging 48 to 50 mpg. I am inclined to twist that right wrist occasionally too. :wink:

I see you are clear on the eastern side of Iowa. I live in Omaha, NE and ride in western Iowa a lot.

Hi Max and welcome to the forum :wave: As paul says the mileage does improve. Mine is still improving with 7000kms on the odometer. My last few tanks averaged 52 mpg riding 2 up.
