Smart to go at the handlebar thing slow so you can be sure to get what you need; if anything.
I have heard others speak of the Burgman; specifically Greg Benner. Do you have a pic you could post of it. I look them up and wonder how people could possibly tour on something like that and think that maybe I'm not looking at the right model or something.
Pictures? Sure, plenty, from various angles, with and without various farkles, etc.. Check out my Burgman gallery: http://www.billanddot.com/burgman/
Suzuki has two Burgman models, a 400 and a 650. The 650 (actually 638cc) had two variants (now just one, I believe), with the fancier Executive model adding ABS, an electric windshield, and a few other tidbits. Although a scooter in the sense of a twist-and-go automatic, no neutral, and a sort of step-through design, it's a "real" bike, in the sense that the engine is rigidly mounted to the frame up front (just where you'd expect it on a bike, i.e., not on the swingarm), it has large-ish wheels (15" front, 14" rear), has that beefy engine (DOHC, 4-valves per cylinder, parallel twin), and it weighs c. 610lb.
A buddy (also on a 650 Burgman) and I did 840-mile days -- twice -- coming back from MotoGP races at Indy, back to Albany, NY. I also did two 800+ days by myself, coming home from family visits in North Carolina. What made long trips possible on a Big Burger, for me, is: I added a true cruise control (MC Cruise); the engine can run just fine at speed, all day (and I got over 100mph -- GPS verified, not the optimistic speedometer -- a few times); the electric windshield is great (just like, say, a Vision); BeadRider beads fit nicely; and -- here's the big thing -- just like, say, my XCT, you can really use different feet positions, from almost-full-stretched-out ahead to straight down. Don't forget, on a scooter, your feet aren't doing anything -- no shift lever, and the rear brake is on the left grip -- so your feet are always, um, free to move about the cabin.
What's not so great about the 650 are its two-up passing ability, the passenger leg and foot positioning, and if the tranny ever goes south you're looking at an expensive mailbox or something. (There are a few other negatives, but there are also some other pluses, like excellent storage and weather protection.) I owned mine from 2007 - 2012, and traded it in on the XCT. I wanted one last hurrah on a big, low C of G, full-dresser/bagger, before my knees and ankles can't take it any more, but the Burger was a fun ride for five years.
