As a new motorcycle rider, the 2006 Suzuki Burgman 400 was my motorcycle of choice. Lots of research went into my choice and I absolutely love mine. I've taken the BRC and the ERC. I've still got a lot to learn.

Known as "Burgie" or my "Silver Hulk," Burgie keeps up with all the Harleys, Gold Wings, Kawasaki's and other makes and models that my spouse and I ride with. Interstate travel, back roads, curves, mountains, we've been there. The only thing holding Burgie and me back is my limitations. This is my first year in the driver's seat. We've already traveled more than 6,000 miles and plan to go a lot more.  

On a two-night camping trip the underseat area held: one three-man tent, one sleeping bag, one ground sheet, two pairs extra gloves, one pair soft shoes, and a hat. Had to put my clothes and the water cooler in two bags on the seat and the rain gear in the dash. Lower center of gravity -- YES!
