Re: My Burgman 400 for sale or swop with adjustment for CN250

The CN250 engine is totally different to that of the Foresight, although still 250 cc the Foresight engine is flat whereas the CN 250 has vertical cylinder. Both are carburettered and the Foresight has a little less leg room for full ‘feet-forward’ comfort.

Re: Vespa GTS 300

Isn’t the prob with hospitals that treatment takes so long - ie between diagnosis and eventual cure? I wish you Data, and Mrs D a speedy recovery and hope personally to meet you as soon as we know of a Norfolk bash,
Be Safe and look after each other.

Re: burger screens ?

When I had my Burger 400 K8 I fitted a Givi screen, so I have the original Burger screen (in very good undamaged condition) and pair of Black f/glass hand guards for disposal (collection from Fakenham) (screen in Givi cardboard case)
PM me a sensible offer....

Re: Vespa GTS 300

I had a go on an MP3 about 2 years ago (from a company in Norwich, Moonraker?) — well, its different and doesnt like sleeping policemen bumps, it has more linkages to wear or go wrong, more expense on tires, king-pins etc; would I really want / need one at 81? Prob not, as have five bikes already - ...

Re: The Burgman Grin it's real

Possibly.... My first experience of CVT in 1990 gave me a grin for about 5 minutes, beyond that I came to realise that using such a machine takes away all skills needed to ride a REAL motorcycle with the sole exception of balance, kind of makes me cry for the past never mind smiling for an automati...
