I bought a blue 2003 Burgman 650 on September 6th. I also currently own a yellow 2003 Suzuki DL1000 V-Strom. I have put 750 miles on the scooter so far. I have owned many motorcycles and several scooters over the years. I read several test reports before buying the Burgman, but every time I ride it it exceeds my expectations. I will be adding a Givi windscreen and a Givi trunk soon. I hope Suzuki gets serious about marketing this machine in the USA. This is about as much fun as you can have on two wheels.
