Nah. I think it is a smart choice...much better in the long run than the "Lardy".
I like the Burgman 400...a lot. However, if the ride on the CTX700 would absorb the potholes, expansion joints, etc. that are common on Seattle's roads, I can see myself buying one of these very easily. With our budget problems here, I don't see anything good for Seattle's roads in the future.
I like the MPG...which unlike almost every other motorcycle, is up there with our Burgman 400s. Obviously, I'm drawn to the handling and ride. Negatives are the storage, and tire costs. And I have another thread asking for answers to how I'll keep my feet warm and dry.
My plans are long term though. I'm going on a mission trip to Tanzania next September. If I live, then this might be a nice way to celebrate.
(And I don't want to saddle my wife with two bikes in the garage to get rid of, if I don't.) So I'll wait till I return and try to find a hungry dealer in the middle of winter when sales are slow.
