consider the body protection from wind and weater, the uprigt seating for comfort and ease of fatigue, (after you get rid of that P.O.S. stock shield and put on anything else like a pine 2x4 or a givi shield or a wet cat, live or dead ) the light weight as compared to some cruisers the auto transmission the no blistering heat cooking your legs and crotch, no loud noise grating on your nerves on the days when you really would rather not have it. unfreaking believable storage that doesn't require tons of saddle soap and maintenance and a bike that also doesn't require spit polishing and stupid looking skulls heads and an oil leak just to be ordinary among it's peers. you may find a Burgman has a few positive traits. It may not have any inherent "cool points" the rider must provide them
another highly valuable benefit to the Burgman is this forum!
