I would like to say hello to all. I have spent most of my life touring on a motorcycle. I picked up my new 650 yesterday and it will be my seventeenth ride. I'm 79 and it is getting difficult to throw my leg over my big bike but there are still lots of roads left and I'm hoping the Burgman will be the answer...After 140 break in miles today and a gusty crosswind, I will have to get used to the seat and suspension but overall, I am very pleased. I'm sure this forum will be a great source of information to a new scooter rider.
