    Got myself a Forza 300. Motorcycle days are over due to a serious back injury that has restricted the movement in my left foot!

    Pin in my left ankle is why I have a Honda CTX 700 with DCT. Paddle shifter on the handlebar works for me. Though I mostly use it for long distance touring since it has hard cases unlike my scoots.

    Way to go nomadicbrett. I did also just recently. After so many years on a big bike and making the occasional fun of the Burgman riders, I am now feeling more than a bit foolish. Who knew these would be so fun to ride? High speed cruising and a comfortable ride, what's not to like? Ride safe man.

    I've put many miles in the pnw on my 03 650 burgman. Always 2up and overloaded with gear and never missed a beat! The best touring bike I've ever owned.

    I recently added a Vespa Gt200 to augment my Honda Ace Tourer. The honda's an absolutely great bike. But, for the riding I do, running errands, going to work, back road exploring, the Vespa wins..... Light, basic,comfortable.

    Tired of shifting and went back to scooters after I sold my Makesty 10 years ago. With urban traffic and speed cameras and tickets by radar motorcycles just lost the allure.
