Hi all, returning to scootering, gave up my Burgman 3 years ago and recently had an attack of the yoofness. So taking delivery of a 300 Forza next week and hoping my 64 year old back and RA will forgive me. Thought about getting one of those four wheeled 8mph electric scoots but they look difficult to park (far too many wheels).
Have spent the last 50 years on and off bikes and realized a few years back that 1k + bikes are heavy/noisy/thirsty and fun but tried a burgman and loved it, so here I am again, its like a bad habit (I can handle it).
Any who nice to have the opportunity to say hello and hopefully will be able to give some input in due course.

Thanks for the welcome chaps, not very good with names unless I write em down, so don`t go getting upset if I get yer moniker wrong.
Just had a brief look in at the main forum page and some guy was asking about rear shock lowering brackets for the forza, Seems to me we had an answer to the short leg problem in the 70`s `Platforms ' if they were good enough for Roger D ? Rock on Tommy.
Personally I want to know why, in the 70`s I was 6`2" and now I`m a fraction less than 6`? inside leg has stayed at 32" and the landing gear seems the same distance from the tarmac, I still don`t look up to anybody but there`s loads out there looking down.....ho hum I guess time changes things.
