Still though, we did not NEED a new car. That's not buyers remorse. So far I'm very happy with the Great Pumpkin. However being a one car family puts me into an interesting position of trying to determine what I actually need and want to take on my daily commute. For example, I need to take a change of clothes with me now in case of rain, and the weather in Florida is even more unpredictable lately than it normally is. The storage in the Burgie is wonderful, but now I have extra clothes, my helmet, my jacket, a towel, rain gear and other things to worry about. Well I did buy some good rain gear, their have been times it has failed me.

But then again, where would I put that? Which brings up the idea of a top case. Advantage, more space to put crap...and if I got one that hooked into the electrical system a little more light during the hours I ride home from work. Disadvantage: Do I really need more crap? I'm trying to simplify my life! I don't really need that at this stage of my life, but I could see myself wanting one in the near future. I want to replace the sliders. I want a new Givi Windshield for the bike as well. But again, wants vs. needs.
What I am going to need is a new belt for the CVT soon. My belt has roughly 20K on it and to the best of my knowledge is the original belt. Suzuki suggests you change the belt at 12 - 15K. The good folks over at the Burgman forums suggest 20K is more reasonable. My front tire seems a little funky as well, so I will be replacing that soon as well. Now...where do I find the money for all this!
