Big Jump from a scooter
Getting an extended test ride (few days) on an '04 1100 classic; so far I love it. This is big change from the Burgman 400 (maxi-scooter) I've been riding for the last 4 years. Not sure why I'm making the change as the scoot has lockable storage, so easy in traffic (mostly I just commute)-- just feel ready for a change and a "real" bike. I think I'm going to do it-- just looking for any advice or "look out for's" before I sign the papers. My choice for about the same price was an '09 650 classic; the shop says even with the miles I will be way happier with the 1100 and is giving me a year warranty to make me feel more at ease with the miles.
It has 10k miles and seems tight as a drum. Now if I can just get used to a foot brake instead of the left hand!
