At the age of 63, seven years ago, I purchased my first maxi-scooter after taking the motorcycle safety course at a local community college. My first ride was/is a 2007 Piaggio X9 500cc Evolution which I rode many fun miles--over 45,000. Riding a scooter is great fun but I wish I had done it 45 years ago. It is time to replace it and will be buying a new Burgman 650 soon. I have been eyeing Burgmans for a couple of years now. I would see them at various scooter rallies so now it is time to go for it. Looking forward to following this Burgman forum to learn more about them.
