New Burgman rider here. Please tell me more. Is the regular latch prone to failure or is there another reason to do this? No experience with the Burgman so I am still in the learning curve here.
There is always a lot of things to learn, but the most important part of learning is realizing that there is basically two ways to learn,
The EASY WAY or The HARD WAY! The HARD WAY is finding out that you cant open your scooter seat and realize that all your important stuff is under there, Cell Phone, Keys, I-Pad, Money, Wallet, etc.
The EASY WAY is to Plan Ahead and make provisions to be prepared for just such emergencies BEFORE they happen, by having a spare set of keys in your other pocket, spare keys hid on the bike, or maybe an emergency seat release.
One thing about the learning curve, don't let the curve come around and hit you in the back of the head!
Sometimes on older bikes, it has been known for water to get into the release cable and rust the cable so that it wont move. Or sometimes other things happen.
What if you are out on a hike and get back to your bike and find out that you don't have the key because in fell out a hole in your pocket, or fell out when you reached into you pocket to pull out a rag/handkerchef, or numerous other reasons. What Then? That spare key in your other pocket or hid on the bike will be worth it's weight in GOLD.
I could go on and on about being prepared for flat tires, and other stuff, but that's another thread on another day!
