I still have my PCX 150 even though I bought a Versys 300 . It still runs me to the hardware store and around town and gives me more then 100mpg every tank.

I would be lost without my Honda Forza 300. I use it like a car. So easy to bop to the store on the scoot rather than a 4 wheeled vehicle,,,,

That’s my latest ride between the white 400 and the grey 650. Apparently in Hawaii we can get the matte black with red wheels while the rest of the US gets the only gets the white with black wheels.

I have a Vespa GTS300. I love that thing. It's just a good all around bike.

RE: Anyone ride a scooter too?
there was a time when I owned both of these maxi scoots concurrently. Burg 650 on left, Burg 400 right

I bought this Burgman 650 back in 2011:

all my ADV riding buddies thought i lost my mind when we grouped up for our rides ...but they were equally blown away at how quick it was too.

You guys HAVE to ride a Burg 650 before you kick the bucket. That's all I'm going to say. switch the button to POWER mode.Big GrinBig Grin

And sooooo rooomy and super duper easy to ride and park.

İmage

In 2014, I bought this Burg 400 rather impulsively. Didn't need a 2nd scooter, but that didn't stop me from buying it. I think it was the ABS on this 400 that nudged me to buy.

Then a yr after, in 2015, I gave the 650 to my son to use while attending college.

So I'm down to one scooter again...

İmage

in 3 yrs, I've only put 12k miles on it...most of it on short trips around town...
hauling stuff home...

Yep. A rider completed my SS1000 aboard a Honda Helix 250 a few years ago, and finished ahead of several Gold Wings and RT's. He didn't seem any worse for wear.
