Just came back from a short (150miles) stint on 2!!! wheels. Yes folks I'm back on two wheels. For the time being I can't and didn't want to push my luck in immediately get onto a Big K, so for now its a smaller, ligher bike and since I always liked scooters, the best wife on earth agreed to a new Burgman 650. Kinda fun, has enough power for putting 'round, AND itg gets me back on two wheels.

You have NO idea how good that feels. 13 months after my accident I'm back. Yeah baby! Watch our Houston!

Hey that's great. I've kinda looked at the Burgman also. My wife showing small interest in ridding her own ride.

Welcome back to the wheels Andy! Those Burgmans are pretty cool. I met a couple touring on one on the Id. Mt. border this summer. They'd planned a 3000 mile tour thru the PNW. Actually left a Harley at home and took the Bman they liked it soooo much!

Definitely good news Andy. Glad to here you're back on two wheels. I sure enjoyed riding your old Honda Silverwing. That was a blast. Perhaps there's an HDDC adventure for you in the future:)

That's the best news I've seen on this web site in a long time!
Congratulations. I think that your news far outpaces anything that Messenger 13 has in store for his 5000th.

Great news. I spent a lot of time on the Burgeman web site and test rode the 650. I think you will like it.
Really great to learn that you are healing better than you expected.
