hydawaydoc thank you for the encouraging words on the Burgman. Deborah almost purchased a well sorted out low mileage NC700x. DCT. (that now on hold)The used NC700x are much cheaper than a Burgman . So you think the executive model is the way to go. I have 2 Champion Escorts we really like them for several reasons.So could cannibalize the K75 and use the Escort. Well you have Deborahs attention on the Burgman.It will get her to Alaska,and the top of the world highway?
