After having contemplated purchasing a mega scooter for some time, I found this site and discovered answers to my remaining questions. I went to my local Honda dealer to look at the Silverwing and to the Suzuki dealer to look at the Burgman 650. The choice was pretty clear, so I bought the 650. I have owned a good variety of motorcycles before the Burgman. I bought this primarily for commuting, but also for a little light touring. I'm looking forward to getting my break-in hours out of the way. I'm heading to Deal's Gap as soon as I do. Glad to be a part of the Burgman Brotherhood.
