Saw a couple of 650's pass my house on Miller Ave yesterday. Look like a husband and wife team...each on their own bike.
Just wondering if they're Burgmanusa Members?

I have rode to Lake Placid many times with our group from Port Charlotte. Our favorite restaurant is The Golden Corral. The only thing we like better is Homers in Sebring.

Well, this was just 2 Burgmans I saw. We get a lot of motorcycle traffic by our place. Today a bunch of maybe 10-12 motorcycles went by the house. I didn't get a look at them, but I recognize the sound of Cruisers when I hear them. IMHO, today would not have been a very good day for riding as the wind was really howling...20mph, gusting to 30mph. There was a severe Lake Warning Alert most of the day. Last Feb there was a LARGE group of Spyders met for lunch at the Golden Corrall. SO many Spyders there was no room for any cars to even get in the lot.

Being a retired sailor I'm surprised there are never any sailboats out on the lake sailing when we ride by.

We lived for years in the Bowie, MD close to Annapolis and the Bay. I had some friends who were sailors, but I even though I gained an interest in boating, I never was into sailing. When I retired we sold our house and bought a 38 ft Trawler, planning on living on it for at least 5 years or so. We ended up with a cruise that took us to Florida, and after spending a Winter there, and on our trip back to MD we stopped along the ICU (in Florida) for what we thought would be a short visit with some sailor friends we had met. While at their Dock in a boating community called Turkey Creek, a couple of sailors across the canal we had also met, came over to our boat one evening for a visit. We knew they were planning to sail to Europe for a three year stay. They asked us if we might be interested in renting there house and dock while they were gone. My first reaction was..."No way did I want to be tied to a dock for that long!" (We basically had been living on the hook for 90% of the time since buying the Trawler) I had said from the start that I never wanted to be a "Dock Cruiser" like so many "Boaters" I knew. When they lowered the rent to a small figure (lower then any Dock fee) and said would we consider it for a year, I finally agreed. That was a mistake, because by the time the year was up, we had decided to stay in Florida. Short story...we sold the Trawler and built a house in Lake Placid.

BTW: You know anyone in Port Charlotte who might be interested in buying a 2011 Spyder RT SM5 AC ? I'd like to sell mine and get another late model Burgman650 Exec. I miss my Burgman 650 Exec!

How much are you asking for your Spyder. I have a friend who has a Burgman 650 and a large Victory cruiser who might me interested.

Thanks for your reply.
You said your friend has a Burgman 650, but is it the Executive Model? Also what year Model? I am only interested in a late (2010-2013) Model 650Exec,
and I would consider taking such a Burgman Exec trade as part of a Sale.

The Spyder (Silver in color) is a 2011RT SM5/AC. I bought it brand new in January 2012. It now only has a few miles past 2000. Always kept in the garage, never been outside overnight or in the rain. Some of the features include AM-FM Radio, heated grips for driver & passenger, reverse gear, cruise control, parking brake and also a LoJack. Other then the LoJack, the bike is completely stock. The latest KBB this week rates it "Excellent" @ $18,980 (private sale).
