Greetings From South Gippsland
« on: May 21, 2019, 09:25:35 PM »
Hi all, my name's Russell...

Bought a 2005 ST1300 last weekend and I'm hanging out to pick it up.  Hopefully it will be in the next day or two. Just waiting on a roadworthy...

I've hankered for an ST for many a year but never been in a position to buy one until now.
Been a fan of "V" engines & shaft drive ever since I bought my brand new Honda CX500EC Sport way back in the early 80's.

I haven't done a huge lot of riding in recent years but am hoping that will now change...

I inherited a Suzuki Burgman from my brother when he passed away around 3 years ago and although it really wasn't my cup of tea I still managed to have fun although it really did feel wrong not having a fuel tank between my legs and not having to change gears...still, it was better than not getting to ride at all!

So, it's out with the Suzy and in with the Honda... :rockon

Oh, if anyone knows of anyone in the market for a 2007 Suzuki Burgman, feel free to yell out...it's in excellent condition with just 12800k's on the clock...

Cheers  o:)

Thanks Williamson, I'll bear that RTE in mind...It's been a few years since I've dined at the Reefton Pub... :beer

Oh, and considering Lynbrook has the South Gippsland Highway running through it, I reckon that's near enough..lol.  :grin

Welcome Russell.

We used to have a Burgman which my wife rode. We called her Ingrid, and she the 250 cc.
With the CVT gearbox, she could out drag my 650 V-star to 60 km/h.

Great little scooters. I did envy those on the 400 and particularly the 650 Burgmans.

Also the ST1300s, still love them. Great work commuter, weekend ride and long distance beast.

Hopefully we'll catch up at an RTE or National Rally.

Cheers Gadget...I called my Burgman "Ingrid" too!  :thumb

I'll look forward to meeting you sometime down the track...

Oh, by the way, I picked up the ST tonight and I'm already smitten...
And...seeing as it's looking like a beautiful day tomorrow I might just have to go for a little ride instead of preparing "Ingrid" for sale... :think1
