Having ridden a Burg 650 around a parking lot, they feel a lot like a Goldwing to me. I am reaching the point where a Goldawing is a bit much for me around town and in parking lots, but I have decided to go with a smaller motorcycle rather than a maxi scooter, and keep my small (125-150cc) scooters.
Jerry, have you tried a Victory? The Cross Country might be a good fit. It's lighter than the Goldwing (765 lbs) has ABS standard and is very nimble yet has a lot of power available. You can rent from Scottsdale Victory, they have Cross Country, Cross Country Tour and Visions available for rent. They have some nice used ones for sale too. Also, Mesa Victory know someone in town who can cut an inch or so off the seat. That'll make it a bit easier to back up.
