Maybe the shifting cross is worn out.

Odd you should say that. I just turned 60. I am going to make some arrangements in the next few years since I have two of them.

The matte black on the new Burgmans is striking. At my local Suzuki dealer they had the 400 although not the 650 in the matte finish. It looks even better "in person".

I haven't test ridden the 650 yet but it felt good sitting on it in the showroom floor. This new gen 650 seems to be a substantial change over the previous gen. Before I bought my 400 I tried out a 2011 650, but struggled getting it off the side stand. On the 2013 650, it was not a problem.

As much as I enjoy touring on my Vespa, my Piaggio BV-350 is a fantastic touring scooter. The 33 HP at the (larger) rear wheel makes for effortless riding.

Took this in the Eastern sierra's, US 395 to be exact, a couple weeks back. Just south of Lone Pine, CA.

(Frankly, when it comes to scooters...I pretty much love 'em all )
