    Accroding to my friend who has one, the Burgman 650 is superior to many bikes. However, it weighs as much or more than my airhead and uses more gas.

    So, if you put throw over saddlebags on that Crossbones, does that make it a Crossdresser?
    Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want.

    That's the problem with all the mega scooters. Compare BMW's new scooter to their F650 twin. The scooter weighs considerably more, consumes more gas, isn't as fast, and costs at least as much. If you need an automatic buy a Honda NC700X.

    Sorry for the drift, now back to the Harleys

    I liked my SuperGlide Custom well enough and it never let me down mechanically, but once I picked up my RT it rarely came out of the garage.

    And that's a shame because it was a nice bike to just tool along back roads on, but I eventually sold it as I couldn't justify the expense of keeping a garage queen.
