If you have a Burgman photo and story to share, you can contribute it here.

I have been riding for 47 years now and have owned a few bikes over the years. I bought my Burgman 1 1/2 years ago and have put 26,000 thousand miles on it. I guess I can almost say I love riding. When not riding my Burgman, I’m on my Yamaha Venture which I’ll be leaving for Utah on tomorrow with a group of 6. My wife and I have matching Burgmans except for the pin stripe. I told her when she puts 10,000 miles on her scooter she can have hers pin striped too, ha…ha!! She doesn’t ride nearly as much as I do but she does get out and ride. I am almost retired and love to ride every chance I get. We live in California and the weather is perfect for riding right now. We are about 115 miles from Yosemite, it’s a beautiful ride. With the riding season here, everyone have safe travels.

  1. Hi,

    I purchased a 2006 650 Brugman. I love this scooter. I was wondering if they have any Burgman clubs in Orange County, CA. Thanks

  2. From the Burgman Forum posts I’ve read so many negative things about the Burgman bike that I am beginning to have some concerns. I’ve become dubious about buying one. Things like- noise from the rear bearing; faster than usual tire wear; and some brake problems. I do NOT live near a service depot and would like to buy a trouble-free machine.

  3. I can’t say enough GOOD things about the Burgman that I owned, and stupidly sold.

    I never ever ever had one single problem with it.

    It was faster then any of my Harley friends, I could out manuver a Goldwing on the twisties, and it was a well made scooter.

    I never had to take mine to a shop, and I rode it constantly. Frankly, I’ve never heard one single bad thing about them.

    Please get one, you’ll just love it! Feel free to e-mail me should you have any questions, George.
