    Got any pics of the R80 + details and price? (don't let my wife know I'm asking) Plus some pics of the scoot would be cool.

    I'm gonna second this.

    I'm making a tour of Colorado...on a Burgman 650. Now, I've done touring...everything from a Yamaha SR500, 25 years ago, to an R1200GS, 18 months ago to Dallas and back. But, although I lived in Denver some years...never toured Colorado by bike.

    The Burgman has been FLAWLESS. Balanced well; does altitude and grades and even rotgut gas, well. What I cannot store under the seat fits well on the passenger seat in a duffle....perfect.

    Complaints? Only one...and it's about me, not the machine. Not working gearbox and clutch...I don't notice fatigue until I start messing up on traffic moves or such...and it can be embarrassing. Dumb moves at the end of the day.

    That...and lack of respect by some of the hard-core biker crowd as you come across 'em. But...fuggum if they can't take a joke...

    I rarely am successful at posting pictures on any of the forums. My computer skills are not great, and when I get pictures to load it's a crap shoot.
    PM me with your e mail and i can send the R80 pictures and data along with a few Burgman shots from the trip.
