Hello from across the pond

Hello all,

At the tender age of 64 I just treated myself to a '99 burgman 400 and thought I should make use of your forum.

Living in Derbyshire in England. Had bikes throughout my life, but this is the first twist and go.

Looking forward to finding useful tips and ideas from you guys, so see you around

All the best

From one 64-year-old to another, welcome to the board from Carlsbad, California, USA. Sunny and warm here today. Good day for a scoot.

I love not shifting gears. Don't miss it at all. I like to call it "Smile and Go."

Si, si El Jefe. Remember when, if someone called you "shiftless" - it used be a put-down. Go ahead HD guys, call me Shiftless.

Welcome isbfan, from Sunny Tampa Bay Florida, USA!
I see you have a 1999 AN400 in Maroon, the fastest colour.
Yes indeed, Maroon is the fastest colour, but over here we say color. My 08' Maroon 400 is quite fast!
However, I think Liamjs would take issue with us, as he claims his blue is the fastest color.
Lately, I've changed to a Pearl White 650 and it's even faster!
