Hello fellow Burgmen,

My name is David and my other car is a twin turbo Mazda MPV (hence the sn). I have built the van from the ground up, and as with most vehicles putting out almost four times the original power, some drivetrain issues begin to surface. Recently my rear diff has begun to fall apart limiting how often I take it for a drive, let alone stop towing the boat with it. Enter the Burgman 650...

My father had bought this scooter several years ago when he was building his truck and needed transportation, it was also a way he could get around the fact my mother forbid him from getting a motorcycle (he was reckless on his dirt bike in the early years before children). So the Burg sat in the backyard under a tarp and I had always talked about getting my motorcycle endorsement, but never followed through. Finally a few months ago I attended a local two day class for complete beginners, learned my way around a parking lot and received my endorsement. Now I can't figure out why I didn't do it sooner....

My father had outfitted the Burg with oversized & heated grips, oversized windshield, custom seat, Givi V46 Monokey System, and a set of driving lamps down by the front hub. I am self employed as a Handyman and a Fabricator, so modifying the Burg was just a natural progression.


I play roller hockey, and with no way to securely transport my sticks I used some pieces of aluminum from my scrap pile to fabricate up this beautiful thing. With a bungee cord at either end, I have had three sticks in there securely held in place. My rollerblades fit in the Givi, and my other equipment under the seat. This will also be a great device for taking a few clubs down to the local pitch and putt.


Using the same main bracket, I then devised a rod holder with some detachable Scotty mounts we use for the boat. My tackle box fits perfectly in the Givi and a backpack full of snacks and plastics under the seat.


So far I love the Burg, and I'm excited to see what other modifications and great products I can find here on the forum to help me enjoy it more.

Welcome and Congrats! I love the hockey stick holder and your "trolling" set-up. Ever catch anything that way. :lol:
I myself need to fit mine with a kayak trailer soon. Hope you enjoy the ride.
Ride Safe and Have Fun.
