I hope I got the title correct. I finally got set to get myself a Burgman either May-July this year and think I will go with the baby Burgman 200. From all the research I have done I think it will work for me.
Chuck D will do

Hit the big 50 in Dec. 2016 ... heck yeah half way home lol
Height - 5' 9" / 175cm
Inseam -32" / 81.28 cm
Weight - 187 lbs / 84 kg
I am disabled with R.A. stage 3-4 (Rheumatoid Arthritis).
With the Burgman 200 being able to run 75-85 mph / 120-136kph she can run the open roads here in South Carolina with out any issues. I do not intend to run internet speeds if I can help it but she can keep pace on the interstate here. My issue was with my feet and the R.A. but that does not seem to be as bad as I thought it would be. I live in a small town pop. 3,000 and 8 miles from either direction to the next town(s). Now the bang for the buck is what is going to win me over here. Honda Forza 300 cost more yet the Burgman cost less the quality is just as good. Tao-Toa brand is a no-no brand for me, I am an old school mechanic but not able to perform maint and repairs as I did 5-10 years ago. Honda PCX 150 .... nice, very nice but not enough highway speed. Kymco is getting there but 2018 models are changing the line up and price over name brand quality.
Now we need to find links and connections to all the accessories we can and link them for upgrades. I see variator kits to luggage to dress up K/N filters to others goodies for all the other brands but no links and connections for the Burgmans. Taller wider mirrors, hard cases, trim, windscreens, phone-cup-gps-camera mounts, handle bar replacement (would love to see a Burgman 200-400-650 with chrome bars) wind deflectors, floor boards, etc. I have a friend (Suzuki Bike Rider) who wraps emergency vehicles and signs so he can make a wrap kit for me (Do not like the ???Brown/Bronze?? color this year) and he will put reflective wrap on for me. I have thought about doing the trike conversion but I do not need it yet.
Give some feed back chime in and lets have some fun.
Ride on .....
I do plan on doing 200 mile one way runs and 500 mile round trip runs. 2 hours from Myrtle Beach and 2 hours from the Mountains lol
