Quick question please. Which do you prefer, the Burgman or the Strom.Sold my weestrom a few weeks ago and got my self a 2009 650 ex which I thoroughly am enjoying. But every time i'm pushing thru a turn i'm scraping hard parts. What am I scraping?? And can I get more clearance??. This never happened with the weestrom.
It is forgiving to a small degree. You can scrape it and it should be a warning sound that it is about ready to unload the rear tire and to back off.dragging the center stand is not like dragging a peg. Wouldn't dragging the ctr stand hard lift the rear wheel???
The center stand hangs down just a little and it can move up a bit before it gets to the hard point and starts lifting the rear wheel. Before it does that you will likely hear the plastic grinding.dragging the center stand is not like dragging a peg. Wouldn't dragging the ctr stand hard lift the rear wheel???
So I can't lean it as much as I would a motorcycle. Is that correct? If so I may cancel my planned North Carolina ride which included a trip to the Dragon.If you push past the point that the center stand drags the next thing to touch down is the plastic right underneath where the floorboards turn up.
Depends on what motorcycle you are talking about. You can lean it further than a lot of the cruiser type bikes but not as far as most sport bikes. In general lean angle is not much of a limiting factor on the 650. You can get it far enough over to not have any chicken stripes on the tires if you are inclined to.
You didn't insert a 'smile,' 'wink,' or 'roll-eyes' smiley after your statement. So I'm going to assume you are 'funnin with us.
Gary Nixon (famous motorcycle racer) once said that it's more fun to ride a slow bike fast, rather than ride a fast bike slow.
