I had 5 of them at one stage all for racing never actually rode one on the road.

Moved onto Yamaha's now but miss the Hyo's and their quirky faults.

Got the Silverwing for ease of commuting in the city, love the dam thing now should have bought scooter years ago.

Yeah I feel the same way about the scooter. I've never raced but I've ridden wind worked on bikes my whole life and just could never "stoop" to a scooter. But the reality is that for 95% of what I do the scooter makes a lot of sense.

600km's converts to about 375 miles. Is that correct? Question

welcome - GT - that's one low mileage scooter, I am also new to scooters with a '07 (slightly more miles on the clock), it is a very interesting experience riding them isn't it?

the best advice I've had so far was from a member here (John Grinsel) - to push down with your feet ( forward position) - until then I was having trouble tying the front into the back end - adding a little counter steering seems to help too.

Welcome!
These big scooters are a lot of fun and much handier running errands in town. Their utility with a top box and the under seat storage are great for a bit of shopping too. I find the variety of riding positions makes it more comfortable on my scooter. Feet forward most of the time, back with your feet nearly under you for rough patches. Sometimes I press my feet forward to wedge myself between the floorboards and the butt stop. Somewhat akin to gripping the tank with your knees on a bike. Whatever techniques one uses it's usually a surprise how well these machines handle and perform on the road. I surprised some of my friends who still have Goldwings, they though I wouldn't be able to keep up with them on the road. Often It's me who has to wait for them.
