Wanted to say hi to all the Burgman owners on the site. I just bought an 04' 650 less than a month ago. Been riding it every day that has a hint of sunshine. 35 degrees the coldest so far but no problem riding to work 38 miles away. All highway miles. I also have an 03' Vulcan Nomad 1500 and Suzuki sv650. I only ride the scoot. Handles the best with the low center of gravity and small tires and great brakes. Been riding 44 yrs and had 41 bikes. Use to race in Japan as a young fellow. This 638cc v-twin is nicer than anything I have had in the past including one goldwing. "Twist and go." what a great idea! Always in the exact power range for the performance I need and other than scraping both side when buzzing the back roads against my son on the SV, it is perfect. I am on this site every day and evening enjoying the great banter and stories. I already have lots of good stories about riding with my harley, honda, kawasaki suzuki buddies. When the riding gets very agressive the Burgman leads. Go figure!
