Test rode a Silverwing and Burgman 650 back 2 back. Silverwing was more nimble in town, kinda sketchy on the highway. Silverwing also had an annoying hard vibration from start. Burgman was a little more heavy steering in town, but on the highway MUCH more stable. Better wind protection too. Burgman fit and finish superior. Faster, off the line and passing speed.
So it's like a disease, like liberalism then?
