Thumbs up Pleased to meet you all.

Hi, to all from here in Blighty a small town just north of Birmingham in the Midlands. I've been a Burgman 650 2015 owner for just over a year having traded my beloved Vstrom 1000 for an immaculate matt silver specimen. I have so far fitted a Kappa screen and panniers on homemade mounts, I've also fitted modified air shocks from a Corvette and emulators to the forks which have made a huge improvement to the ride (pleased the wife no end), unfortunately it's illegal over hear to fit car tyres to bikes other wise I would have tried the Dark side to try and extend the poor tyre life of the 14 inch rear wheel. I hope to post some photos of all the mods soon but it will have to wait until I can find some time to give her a good clean,(miserable British weather). This forum has been an absolute mine of information and I thank all those for posting their info experience's and tips.
Thanks from DaveyP.

Greetings from Texas. I spent a month over there 15 years ago, with a couple days in Birmingham, and loved the country. in my Helix-owning days, I found many of your countrymen to have great expertise and enthusiasm on the subject of scootering. I'll look forward to your posts. Welcome to this site, to which I've so recently been welcomed myself. Cheers.

DaveyP, welcome to the BUSA forum to you. It's great to have another member on here from the UK. I've always wanted to see the Midlands and would guess that with the exception of any weather related issues, the riding through the scenery there must be fantastic. Actually, my sister is up in the north, so I guess one day I'll get out there to see it. Enjoy your riding there.
Again a warm welcome, and I hope you can avail yourself of all BUSA has to offer.
