Anyone can take pretty pictures of their scooter set against pretty backgrounds, but one day several years ago, I thought it would be interesting to do the opposite and take deliberately poopy scooter photos with my Burgman amidst poopy surroundings.....I thought it was time to share these gems with my Vespa friends.....Enjoy!

Dang! we've been in Rapid City since 1993....If I'd known you were around here, I would have bought you a coffee and donut or something.

Ironically, we moved here from Minneapolis.

I'm sooo glad we don't have trailers over here. No billboards as well. Don't miss them. oops i lied we do have a few trailers but they are at construction site and then when the job is done you don't see them anymore. I've only seen a couple. Mother nature sure hates them as well.

We had two of them, my wife's 2006 grey, and my 2007 white. They were both standard models, not executives. They've both been gone for maybe two years now. We put about 17,000 trouble-free miles on each of them, but regrettably, we never were able to run them on any long road trips, which they would have been superb at doing. I might consider getting another one. I currently have a 2009 Concours 1400 and a Honda Valkyire 1500, but I would consider the 650 Burgman to be at least an equal, if not a superior (solo-ridden) open-road machine to either of them when all things are considered. The only category of performance that the Burgman may be lacking in is raw power, but the importance of that is highly subjective, and the Burgman is at least adequate for 95% of what's needed to cross a continent, and have a hell of a good time doing it.

Glad to hear your view on the B650! I have been considering getting one lately. Had my RT in the Shop 3 times the past year. 17,000 trouble free miles would be nice. I am learning about Bring Money With you on the RT.

when Stateside in '03, ran through a town called "Cul de Sac" - either Washington or Idaho.

Wins my vote for best named town ever - full of trailers.

I actually find this photo to be beautiful! Being a huge fan of older cars and building hotrods, this looks more like a goldmine then an eye sore. Just goes to show that beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.

I'll admit that this shot doesn't deserve to be in a poopy photo thread. When I took the picture, my intention was to simply place the Burgman against an interesting background and was taken at a different time than the truly poopy ones with the trailers with crap strewn all about.

Currently, there are only about two-thirds the number of cars in the field that are in the older image I posted. The cars ranged from the 1940's through the 1970's and were neatly arranged and grouped in the field by brand and vintage. I'm not sure who owned them all, but they have apparently been selling some of them off over the past several years.
