You know, I've seen this type of discussion over and over again. My answer is, "Who cares? Ride what you like. Whether it's a 650 or 1000 I could really give a rip. I enjoy RIDING...":beatnik:

Talking

I just completed a 1000 mile round trip from KC to southwest Arkansas on every kind of paved road, flat, mountains, twisty, straight, 2-lane, 4-lane, etc...I was loaded with gear too. I had no problem with power. As I was riding along I remembered my old BMW K1100LT. I wouldn't trade my Wee for that old boat for nothin'. Plus I averaged almost 60 mpg!

Isn't this where someone usually mentions that the V is the weakest 1000 cc motor out there? Did I say that out loud?

Boy are you going to be upset when you find out that your mighty v-strom 1000 is really a 996, it's like losing 4" off your penis, which you seem to equate with your motorcycle.
Sorry for feeding the troll.
