Curious how many members have the 650 vs the 1000? So far it looks like the majority favor the 650. Makes me wonder if I should have taken it more seriously before plunking the money down for the 1000.. I didn't ride the 650 figuring it wouldn't have quite the punch I like to have in a bike like this. I did test out a 2015 Yamaha FZ-09, fun bike but a bit to scary for a regular ride IMO.. The Versys 1000 LT seems just right to me so far.
