Well. I'm bouncing back from an enforced, but necessary absence from riding, if you don't count scooting around on the Burgman (which is really great fun). Several months ago I posted a thread while I was climbing the healing hump, and there were suggestions of changing style and getting a cruiser. Now, I know what DrSleepy would recommend, but that's a swing-over with a seat too high. And might be too quick. The Burgman has been so enjoyable to ride. Really relaxed and fun. I really seriously considered the Yamaha T-Max 530, and my next youngest brother would like me to get a BMW 650 scooter like him. I did take an Aprilia SRV 850 for a run, and boy, what a fantastic scooter, wonderful smooth ride, incredible brakes and handling, and really good, turbine like performance, with an engine close to my 900 SS. I think I'd have bought it, and would have if I was 180cm and able to bench press 100 kg. Step-overs, I've found, are really rather comfortable. Yeah, maybe it's time for a cruiser. The Aprilia was at North Coast V-Twins, and then I saw it... Just a weeny bit bigger than a step over, and Oh So Comfortable. It fit like a glove. And it's much lighter than the scooters I'd been looking at. So tell me. Is this enough Bling for the Life or Death comeback?
