Hi Pete

I am so glad you found us - welcome to the forum! :hello2:

As you are probably one of the most experienced Burger pilots on this forum I am looking forward to hearing of your experiences, modifications and maintenance advice.

Hope you have a good Christmas and New Year too! :eek:ccasion5:

Not so Daff,

I'm a big fan of the TT. Can the Burgman push the "ton" coming down the mountain?

Thanx,
Russ

I wear my Isle of Man TT neck lanyard everyday (employee badge holder)

Yes I have seen the ton on the clock coming down to the Creg, that was with the standard screen on however. The handling gets rather skittish at that speed though. The brakes are well up to slowing for the 30mph turn at the bottom.
The Burgman accelerates up to top speed quite quickly but the aerodynamics seem to limit it quite firmly - it doesn't creep up further.
Generally the roads on the Island are not suited to over enthusiastic riding on a scooter with swing engine. But I do take it to the UK two or three times a year where the roads are better, but the speed limits aren't. :wink:

Daff,

Maybe someday we can share a pint or two at the Creg, I keep dreaming of making the trip. Maybe for the vintage races rather than the big mess of the TT. When's the best time of year if you're not going to the TT?

Thanx,
Russ

Russ,
When you say vintage races you must mean the (UK National) Manx Grand Prix races held over the same TT Mountain Course. These take place around the end of August over two weeks. Practices begin on the Aug Bank Holiday weekend.
Not so commercialised as the (International) TT with a much wider range of machinery (including classics). The quick boys are just as fast as the Internationals.
