By way of an introduction, I am a 76 year old who has had to get off of my motorcycle because of a problem with my legs.  I rode as a young man, mostly in the dirt but then life got in the way and I gave up riding.  Fast forward to when I turned 65 and my cousin took me to a motorcycle show.  I came home and told my wife I was going to buy a motorcycle.  She said I was either crazy or senile.  Hence my license plate and online name of CNILE.  Earlier this year I bought a Burgman 400 and I have to say I am very happy with my choice.  I love the twisties and so far the scoot will do everything that I need it to do.

Love my baby burgman  400 too. Great in the mountains. I'll  be riding my 650 to Cooperstown  in Sept. taking the BRP and skyline Drive as far north as possible.  I'm 76 also but just crazy, not "cline". Great tag.

Welcome ...

Loved my '08 Burgman 400 - not too big, and not to small - just right.

Welcome back to riding and welcome to the from from Virginia.

The weather doesn't look good for a while but maybe when it clears we could meet somewhere like Louisa and you could tell me about all the people on this forum.
