Got a 03 400 liked it. got a 06 400 a week later liked it then saw and test drove a 650 (5-20-13)and was a done deal what a nice ride. Bought it :thumbup:
I am 68 and have had little over 50 bikes in 40 years (sport,baggers,Goldwings ,BMW's)of riding and this sure is a nice setup.It feels like a motorcycle with a auto transmission . Reminders me a lot of the FJR-A I had.
Bikes have changed a lot in the last 40 years. When I look at some of the old bikes I had it reminds me where we came from. Kick starts ,no signals,carbs ,no ABS,no helmets and we know no better. My first bike was 46 or47 Indian with a magneto and a three speed trans with the shifter on the side of the tank. That started the love of motors for me.
Live in Redding Ca. North of Sacremento a area that is a great place for bike riding.

Hello and welcome to the 650 world.
I live in Redding also. Just got back from 3200 mile trip to Arizona and Utah. Visited four National parks. Rode with 20 other motorcyclist from all over the USA and Canada. Had a great time and the Burgman did very well.

We should go for ride sometime.
