In November I sold the Burg 650 and got a NC750X DCT. I have been commuting on it as much as I can (heated clothing/gloves) and going out on any weekend it wasn't raining.

For two months I thought I had made a good decision but.... I am missing having a scooter. I have no idea what the pull is with them but I really miss not having one.

I have been looking at a Forza or SH300i.

Make sure you try them first as very different beasts to the Burger 650.

There are plenty of older looked after 650`s around the 1.5K area , maybe you could manage both.

It's horses for courses really.. What suits you might not suit me etc..... The main thing is being on 2 wheels and simply enjoying it.....

Riding home from work always puts me in a better frame of mind regardless of how naff my day might of been...

I look forward to riding home.. But can't say the same when in the car!!!

Gotta agree there , I enjoy riding to work as the views change everyday,but even more so riding home ,however I do tend to take a detour to explore the mountain roads wether it's the srv or the crossrunner .

Yeah, I did sit on a SH300i and thought it was tiny compared to Burg but I liked the seating position. I also watch a you tuber who has a Sh150i and he goes all over Canada on it, I love how simple it looks to manage/ride.

As you say, I need to try it. My problem is I could do with trying it for a weekend rather than just a couple of hours test ride. I wish dealers would let you hire the bikes!

I watch that guy on the sh made some panniers out of plastic ammo boxes .

Its better to be a "Has been " than a "Never Was "

Yeah, that's him. I've watched all his scooter videos, I love em. Just all about the riding and adventure of exploring and being out in nature. It's what I love about being on two wheels.

I can categorically state that the answer is a Maxi and an NC.....!

I still consider my NC750x DCT a scooter.

My TMax MK3 had a chain final drive, there was no way I could get my leg through instead I had to sling it over, It had a large enough storage compartment for a helmet, it was an automatic... all these describe my NC :lol:
