My Burgie's engine has a very loud rattle at highway speeds (65-75+mph).  It doesn't rattle at lower speeds (<60 mph).  the faster I go, the more it rattles.  New bike.  Any ideas what causes that?

If it's a new bike, take it back and let them figure it out.
Odds are they didn't tighten something.

ozark... why would anyone that doesn't know the answer to a question bother to post an answer that says he doesn't know the answer?  Kinda wasting everyone's time, methinks.

Not an option at this point.  Dealer is 320 miles away.  Want to know if this is just the way they sound at high speeds or if someone has seen it and knows what the problem is.  Going to a dealer is always a last resort for guys that like to wrench their own bikes.

If you like to wrench start searching....  Rattling is not normal     Coming from one that does her own maintenance, on a new bike I would take it back regardless of the distance so you don't void a warranty.

My Harley had that problem. It was caused by loose exhaust bolts. Tightened down with threadlock and problem solved. I agree that if it is a new bike take it back to the dealer while under warranty.

With all the plastic on scooters, it could be a loose bolt anywhere.
I've found it easier to locate rattily noises without my helmet on.
Also, when it starts making noises, start pushing on different body panels with your hands and legs. If it stops, you found your problem.
