I think we all now what a 400 or a 650 Burgman looks like without a photo, but no one is any wiser to what you've actually bought.

I adjust the size of my pictures using Microsoft Office Picture Manager; it's easy to use and offers a selection of picture size options so one doesn't have to guess.

First impressions was its a long wheel base,on riding it home felt like engine was knocking
and rattley, not as smooth as old EVO
but on A38 it was hell of a lot faster.
Daughter was following me in the car she said I was going way over 80mph in places I did open it up a touch ,it was a bit cumbersome on tight corners, had to put foot down, quite pleased with it at moment,will try a longer trip ,when I can

Very nice indeed! Regarding the engine noises you were hearing. It's mostly the tranny rollers and variator you can hear rattling and knocking. It lessens as the bike warms up. Although like most bikes, it has it's own unique sounds coming from the engineering department. You soon get used to it. We expect a full report over the coming days..lol! ;) It's gonna take you a week or two to get used to her.

If I remember right when I had my Burgman I too noticed what sounded like a knock
I seem to remember eventually deciding it was to do with the air box and is normal.
