A what ?
I first started noticing these things years ago in Paris.
Someone would walk out from the shops with an armload of groceries, open the trunk & stuff everything inside.
Safely stored, the owner would then saunter over to a caffe' & eat & drink for awhile. No need to park the car 2 km away, the sidwalk in front of the market is fine.
Hey. Pretty cool.
One day I was driving down the Italian coast near Viareggio.
The cheap beater rent a car I had reserved was sold out & they upgraded me to a new Alfa Romeo at the same price.
Looking good !
It's a wonderful winding high speed road & I was doing about 75 mph in this great machine & loving life.
In one of the tunnels I was passed by a Scooter doing the better part of 100mph.
I felt like I was sitting still at a bus stop.
"Scooters have come a long way" I was thinking.
"I'd better look into this."
After a tremendously succesfull first four years, the Burgman was upgraded to the second series.
A larger front wheel for more stability, twin disc brakes up front, revised bodywork, Double over head cam engine with improved fuel injection. ( Injection ? Yeah ! )
This is the one.
There is a ferverent clan of owners that populate the globe.
There is also a 650, but most people prefer the 400.
My Burgman is a delight, & arguably with only 5000 miles more reliable than some of the older cars I sell........
Factory serviced at 4000 miles,
A good way to get to there from here.
Huge trunk: 62 litres
You could fill it with baguettes, or beer & pizza.
And a glovebox. Two more binnacles above
Factory 4000 mile service records.
