Bought a used Burgman 03 AN400 with 8000 miles. My Partner has a 250 Honda Helix and I have watched the ease with which she makes trips. I was riding an 82 Honda 200 Twin Star and was beat after 300 miles. I am not a long time biker so it was not a come down for me to buy a scooter. The 400 is great. I have ridden it about 1000 miles and really prefer it to the old Honda Twin Star. I am getting about 65 mpg (US) and I am doing a little tuning, one at a time, to try and get it a little higher, (gas additives, tire pressure, new plug, new belt, etc. I think it may be a little hard to work on but I bought a service manual on E-bay which will help. Cons, I have been advised to watch the oil closely and the speedometer is off by almost 10%. Pros, Fun and comfortable!
