Greetings from Victoria BC!
Hello there from Victoria on Vancouver Island, BC!
Just bought a pre owned 2011 Burgman 400 Executive! Tried a few dealerships in greater Victoria and had pretty bad experiences. The dealers and salesmen all tried to tell me I didn't want a Burgman because of my age (36.) One even told me that "shifting gears isn't all that difficult when you get used to it." I know how to shift gears but I want an automatic anyways! Went all the way out to Ladysmith and it was worth it! Got to test ride the Burgman 400 and the Yamaha TMax back to back. Although the TMax was so much fun and so much faster and more powerful, I had my heart set on the Burgman. Couldn't drive it home because of licence restrictions, so having it delivered tomorrow morning.
I have a restricted licence for 10 more days. Now I just need to find a riding buddy so I can go out riding! Here in BC you can't ride alone for the first 2 weeks after you get your licence. If anyone here in Victoria wants to go for a ride with the proud owner of a new to me Burgman 400 please let me know!
Also, thank you to Suzy from Victoria on the forums here for giving me the confidence that my Burgman 400 can handle the Malahat. I can't wait to take this baby up the coast!
