Crabby,

Thanks for showing us the "old" Chief. My second bike (in 1959) was a 1945 Indian Chief, complete with leaf spring front end. Ah, those were the days! :D

My advise is to consult an optometrist vs. dicking around with drug store glasses. Your eyes aren't necessarily the same, and you could very well have an astigmatism that needs correcting as well.

Not sure where you got your figures, but my 2012 Burgman has a curb weight of 613 lbs. That being said, I don't find it any more difficult to maneuver than my prior 400 Burgman.
