I've talked with two people who own 650 Burgs.

One was a guy in his 70s who said his Wing was too heavy for him to be comfortable with. He loves the Burgman, plans to continue touring 2-up with his wife as soon as they figure out the best luggage setup.
The other guy was in his 60s and due for knee or hip replacement. He has several bikes, but has difficulty getting on and off, and the Burg is more comfortable. He said he bought it to ride until after the surgery, but is really enjoying it in its own right.

The guy who sold me my Strom (Greg at D&L) rides DS and street, and just sold an '02 1000 Strom. He said the Burgman is fast, handles well, and is great fun to ride.

I'd like to have one. I can't believe the price, though. Ouch.

Don't I know it.
You can hear my bones creaking from a mile away when I get on mine.

I believe the Burgam is wide enough that you lose a lot of your filtering ability, if that is important to you. It is w i d e. Also heavier than a Litre sports-tourer bike, even if it does carry it low.
