Will post photos of new bike as soon as can. Like you I picked the Khaki from the get go and with all the red ones in the media coverage and seeing most people pick them as well it just confirmed it. And as you mentioned the test ride is an eyeopener. Initial thoughts were that new bike vs 2012 650 was about style, added HP, and TC. Ride though highlighted suspension, brakes, gear box, and torque. Too much smile factor to ignore. Although 650 is a great bike 1000 is better. In my deal I got them to swap out the Bridgestone Battlewings for Heidenau K60 Scouts. If they work half as well as they look I'll be a grinning fool!
