I'm so confused...
I made the mistake of going and looking at a 1000 LT today. I already have a deposit on a 650 LT which I'm waiting on. I asked my dealer for a price on the 1000 and he made me a good deal on it so I decided to go look at it. It is quite a bit bigger than the 650 and my favorite thing about it is the ergos fit me a little better. It doesn't feel quite as compact as the 650 (duh, I know).
The pros to the big bike IMO are in no particular order: ergos, traction control (although, not needed on the 650 so not a fair comparison?), center stand, better touring bike
Cons: 90 minimum octane, appetite for rear tires, insurance, higher price
Pros to the 650: price, 87 minimum octane, insurance, lighter, better sport bike (in the twisties, anyway)
Cons: no center stand, more compact ergos (can probably fixed with an aftermarket seat for $450 - yikes) - I need a little more leg room
So, I have some serious thinking to do. I like both. Decisions, decisions. First world problem, I know...
