For what it's worth,I rode a older 650 the day I bought my 1000. After riding my 2012 650, and reading the comments on here, it is a lot better, all round, no-it won't bet a Vee, but it's moving closer, the toast thing is a myth, mine wasn't quite as done as I like it! Cheers--BB

Soul of a touring bike are the stickers and badges on the cases of your bike, showing the multiple paces it has visited and traveled.
