Not too much help here. But I’ll bore you anyway. Bought a new Burgman 650 for my wife, versus a small m/c as her first bike. As hard as she tried, as many classes as she took, and however many hours we spent in empty parking lots, she just couldn’t get it. One day she took a spill in front of a LEO. No injuries at all. But the scooter needed substantial Tupperware. I repaired it, sold it, bought her a GW, installed a trike conversion and never looked back. Had less than 100 miles on it. Geez, that was probably 10 years and hundreds of thousands of miles ago. Everything happens for the better as they say.
No, she actually loved the Burgman. Problem was hers, not the scooter. IMO she froze in the corners. Could not get used to leaning. Most of us seek out twisty's; for her not so much. It became fairly evident a trike conversion was the way to go. For both of us. The Burgman itself was a very impressive machine.What problems did your wife have? Was it hard to steer? Blind steering?
