    New rides??

    Relatively new guy here. Just checking, the last ride post was 2016. I can't believe that nobody has went anywhere since then. I've only had my Burgman a few months so haven't taken any trips yet. Looking forward to reading more and maybe posting a few myself.

    Hmm.
    No comments or ride stories. I am shocked that there hasn't been a Burgman on a trip anywhere in the time since the last posted story. Who knew?
    I manage to get out about every weekend even though some weekends it is literally just a ride to town and back. When possible I head into the mountains in Arkansas or into the middle of Louisiana just to get out. Sadly I do not take pictures very well so I can't document them thoroughly. I know the story, no pics or it didn't happen so I have to rely on others to entertain me here.

    Rides in England

    IMG_0473.jpgWell, if we're desperate . . . . I've retired now, so my daily ride to work has given way to fewer, longer runs. After my last collision (car U-turned infront of me) I always ride with the camera on. Here's a shot from my weekly run to Dorchester, on the south coast of England, where I do volunteer police work. Unusual hazard for the traffic in the other carriageway!
    I'm on my third Burgman 650, and love it to bits. Any others in the area?

    Good to see someone from across the pond on here. I've driven in Europe a few years ago. Very interesting place for lots of reasons. I would like to go back someday but also take my bike to really do some traveling. This is my first Burgman. Long time on big bikes but finally made the move about four months or so ago. Yep, totally under-rated in my opinion.
    I appreciate the response here. Please feel free to share more pics with us. I am way behind the times I think. I do carry a camera but usually have it packed away to deep to do any good. Glad to see someone doing way better than I.

    Ride safe there neighbor.

    At least the herd is moving in the same direction as the traffic. Reminds me of our southern California freeway congestion. Thanks for the picture, Route66.

    I did take a scooter trip to another of our National Parks, Death Valley this time. A 3 day ride last November. Notice the elevation on my Garmin. Death Valley 11-2016 033.jpg

    Man...negative numbers.. haven't been there but want to. Not sure why. It looks like a desolate place. Post some pics of it so us midwestern types can get a look at it. Were you on your Burgman?
