Just picked up my new Silver 650 today. Had it out for a 50 km run and am totally impressed. The engine is amazingly smooth and I was also suprised by the power, considering I am following the break-in procedure. I had it up to 110 kph and found there was a bit of head buffeting, but the shield is in it's lowest position so I'll let you know how raising it affects the turbulence around the helmet. The fuel injection is flawless as well as the transmission. I can't believe how smooth the bike shifts. The seat feels confortable, but we'll see after a 1000 km ride day. I'm planning on doing a 3 week trip from Toronto Canada to Las Vegas and then south to New Mexico so I hope it's as comfortable as I think it will be. After a good ride I'll give my ride impression with a bit more detail.
