From Victoria, B.C

New to this forum and Burgman. Just moved up from a Piaggio Tpyhoon 50cc.
I'm newly retired, 56 and live with Marty, my Dachshund.
I've been lurking here for a couple of months but decided not to join up until I got my Motorcycle license and hit the road. I have only 120km on it so far, but with more heat and dry weather on the way will be racking them up!

Hi Mark,
Welcome to the Forum from another Victoria inhabitant. Not very warm for the first day of Spring is it? My Burgie has been sidelined due to the weather too and will be getting a bath to get all the winter crud off and make him ready for riding. I am a fair weather rider and use the Burgie for pleasure. I have a car also and us that 99% of the time. Lots of good info on here. Cheers Sally.

It would be a blast!

E.D. If I ever get down there you'll be one of the first to hear about it. Dad and Step Mum used to be snowbirds down in St. Pete's many years ago but I never got down there. Cheers Sally.

Yes, tell us what you got. A 50cc to a big Burgman is certainly a jump. You're going to love it. Congratulations and welcome to BUSA from sunny Los Angeles.

Welcome Mark, what are you riding? I too came from the Piaggio ranks. I came over to a 400 Burgman kicking and screaming as I really loved my BV250 but I am quite happy with the Burgman.

Thanks for the welcomes. I'm riding a 2016 Burgman 200 with ABS. I've put 200kms on it the last couple of days (sunny ones). Just finished my MSA so I can ride alone and at speed.
I rode my Typhoon every month for the last 8 since we do get enough rain free and sunny days all year (not so much this year).
I chose the 200 rather than a bigger scoot due the fact that 90+% of my riding is Urban with very few places on the Island to do over 100kmh.
So far I'm loving it!

Hi from dreary Powell River. Just getting a slightly used 2014 Burgman 200 this week. Taking my MSA in Victoria first week of May, would love to meet another owner as I am pretty sure I will be the only one here.
