Hi, Bob. As I said earlier, the ergos on the Burgman 400 are, to me, superior to the Silverwing...but man, do they ever want a pile of money for the new B400 or the new SWing these days. I'd look for a nice used B400, 2007 or newer (major engine redo in 2007, decreasing frequency of valve clearance checks), but a nice used SWing like mine is nothing to sneeze at either, if it fits you. The SWing is a good fit for me, the B400 is just better... Here's a photo of the SWing taken on the same route east of Foresthill at China Wall in the late spring 2011: Thank you, Klaviator...I like to take the camera along. You're right, it is a beautiful area to ride. I think several of us are heading for the Feather River Canyon if things cool down a bit, maybe mid-August or so...another good place for photos.
