Hello fellow scooterists.

My name is George and I live in Western Illinois, about 50 miles from Quincy. I am a semi-retired educator and love riding my scooter. I have had scooters/motorcycles off-and-on during my life. My first scooter was a Cushman Super Eagle that I bought when I was 15. After I was old enough to buy a car I gave up riding the Cushman and it eventually disappeared. After several years of not riding I purchased a Suzuki 400 motorcycle and rode it for a few years until I moved out into the country. It became less desirable to ride the motorcycle on a daily basis because of the possibily of changing weather during the day while I was at work, so I ended up selling the motorcycle. After I retired from full-time teaching I began to get interested in two-wheeled transportation again. I ended up buying a Chinese 150 cc scooter and rode it for a short time. A very low-milege Honda 250 cc Reflex was brought to my attention and I purchased it and sold the Chinese scooter at the first opportunity.

I rode the Honda quite a bit last summer and found that I absolutely loved riding again, especially longer-distance multi-day rides. For the last several months I had been thinking about getting a larger scooter, and settled on the Burgman 400 as my scooter of choice. Last week I found an immaculate 2011 Burgman 400 with 1000 miles on the spedometer, listed by a private seller on the internet.

To make a long story short, I drove out to Kansas City, Missouri and trailered the Burgman back to its new home, and am looking forward to miles of enjoyable riding this summer and hopefully many more.

George
