Got the keys to the new Burgman on Monday and drove it home from the dealer's in Amherst, NS. Granted, it's only 70 kms away, but it was an interesting ride nonetheless. I did get to familiarize myself with this new scoot.
Lessons learned:The left lever is not a clutch (repeat five times before riding).ABS on the rear brake is very effective at preventing lock-up when you grab a handful of the left lever (see above point).It'll do 0 to 60 mph in under 7 seconds. Not impressive
