Welcome to the BurgmanUSA forums Marci! Glad to have you with us.
Chuck here- So you are thinking of getting rid of the 1400!! Really! That is a wonderful bike; I still have my 1996 that is in excellent condition. Marci and I have done 600 mile days on that bike. Each of these bikes are apples and oranges, all completely different and each a great bike in their class. You really can't compare them.wilder days said:hello Marci,
I'm just west of Rochester. I'm thinking of trading in my intruder 1400 on a burgman 650 next spring. What does your hubby think of the burgman versus the goldwing? I to ride with a goldwing group here.
Light - a Lardy 650! It is a quarter of a freaking ton! Probably lighter than a GW though :wink:wilder days said:Hi Chuck,
I'd love to meet up for a ride. Do you ride with any goldwing riders group there? I do here. I'm an associate member of group "W". they all ask me when I'm getting a wing, I tell them its not my cup of tea. Too big for me.
I do love my 1400, its the best bike I've ever owned. but I'm looking for something more comfortabel See, with my arthritis, the chilly air and vibrations get to me within a short time. I figure the burger is the perfect solution for me. It will give me the coverage that a wing would, yet still light and easily manuverable.
Marci here - Go and get the burgman or wait till the 05's come out. What Chuck and I did was we kept the 1400 until we saw how things would work with the GW. I agree about the GW being heavy - about 1300 lbs. fully loaded. Chuck still has the 1400 and is planning on souping it up. This way he has options on which bike to take for that ride.wilder days said:its no harder to roll around then my 1400. I've ridden one.
and yes, its a hell of alot lighter then a wing.
I don't mind the extra weight, as it will absorb the bumps better. I know when My wife is on the 1400, the extra weight makes a big difference in the ride, much smoother.
Gosh isn't that a bit personal :shock: (or are you very good friends) :?: :wink:Red She-Devil said:Let me know how you make out.
Sorry - guess it was a cultural misunderstanding, but it is only by making these 'faux pas' can I be assisted on the path to true understanding - Grasshopper!wilder days said:Norman...norman...norman...
shame on you... :lol:
marci and I don't know each other. I talked to her and her hubby because he has a 1400 like me.
There are many paths to the top of the mountain. :sleepy1:NormanB said:...only by making these 'faux pas' can I be assisted on the path to true understanding - Grasshopper!
