I have had more than a few people give me the gears for owning and being seen in public riding a Suzuki Burgman. My good buddy has mentioned that sometime I should get a real motorcycle. My employer - great guy by the way - had said during last summer that he has a friend that has a bike and was looking for people to go riding with. I told him I was interested but he said he wanted to wait until I got a real motorcycle. I had it in to get serviced this summer and I was sitting outside the shop with a coffee and started a conversation with a somewhat grizzled Harley owner. He asked me about the Burgman and I told him I had recently driven it from Calgary into Montana. His response was “On that thing?”
No matter I much love this thing I learned that it doesn’t get you a great deal of respect.
