Why do you like the 650 better than the 1000? I'm shopping for a Strom now and I've been thinking I needed the bigger bike because I'm a heavy guy(240lbs). I bought my 1st bike last Summer and have had 3 since. I don't want to make a mistake again.
I started with a Suzuki Volusia(C50), then to a Kawasaki Nomad, a Harley Street Glide, now I'm looking for something lighter and more fun to ride, but also comfortable for 1500 mile trips.
Thanks for any input you have....Mike.
