Welcome from Tampa, Florida Burgey! I'll bet you're as happy to be past the peak of summer as we are to be past the peak of winter. I'm really glad you found us - it's always good to have a fresh voice in the mix.

I am new here, considering a scooter after riding 2 wheels from 1964 to 2009, then a Can AM RS for two years, Can Am RT for two more. I concluded what I really need is a 2 wheeler with a big comfy seat for two.
The best option seems to be the Burgman 650 so all I gotta do now is get over the transition from biker guy to scooter guy. I think i can do it because I really don't spend a lot of time on what other folks think.

I've been hearing a lot about how biker folks sneer at scooters, but I have yet to experience this myself. The comments generally trend towards "what a cool bike" instead. Admittedly I've only had her since Halloween and I don't often hang out with the 1%ers, but I actually get a lot of interested questions and have never gotten any derision at all. So stop worrying about becoming a "scooter guy" - after all, it's not WHAT you ride, it's THAT you ride!

No offense, but if you're at all bothered by what other folks think, don't get a Burgman. You will get the occasional scoff about the bike, some direct and some backhanded. And the occasional "well you're not a real motorcyclist".

But mostly you get interest. Given the fantastic ride of the bike, its more than worth it.

I had 2 Can Ams and they attract stares and questions far more than a scooter will- I think.

Getting old but still like it!

I just bought a used 2011 650 Burgman Executive. Been riding 2 wheels over 40 years -- mostly big touring bikes until they got too heavy.

My wife and I love the freedom of two wheels and have done much touring. This time (I'm 82) we will limit ourselves to local Arizona trips.
