Piaggio Master 500cc - 5 Years / 55000 km (34000 miles) with the 4 roller Colt conversion

the truth about my crazy experiment III
I started my Colt conversion experiment 2009.8.10 at 19.000 km, now 2014.09.02 five years and at 74.000 km. So 55.000 km (34.000 miles) later it is still working without problems, did not kill the engine or drove me to the poor house.

Malaguti Spidermax - Personal Log

Live is full of tough choices. We are leaving hopefully soon this, very unpleasant to live on, island and go to Spain. My Spidermax is now over 7 years with over 70.000 km. Technically she is OK, but the sun and abrasive wind here were not kind to the exterior. To bring her to Spain will be around 500 € including tax. The value of the Spidermax should be around or a bit below 2000 € if I make her pretty again.
So I was thinking about trying to sell her here and always wanted to try out a Burgman 650 and there is a good selection below 4000 € in Spain.

If you are interested, I share with you my scary findings and my conclusion.
If you own a Suzuki Burgman you might want to do some serious research, start with the links below, or if you don´t want to know, do yourself a favor and stop reading now.
