Hello everyone, I have visited this site previously and am very impressed with it. I am curious about the v or wee stroms. I am 6'4" and 260 pounds; I fit better on the 1000 than the 650; however please correct me if I am wrong but it seems that the 650 does not have the reliability issues that the 1000 has - mainly engine stumbling issues and additional hardware to make it run right. (Don't mean to ruffle any 1000 owners feathers) Am I correct? Are there any major issues with the 650? For me, reliability is an absolute must. I see that the 650 is better on fuel - very appealing given the price of gas. Power is not everything, but perhaps the best way to know is to ride one. I don't know of any dealerships in the Tampa area that allow test rides. By the way, I have been around motorcycles for decades and cannot believe the lack of knowledge of salespeople. I get concerned when I know more about the product than someone who sells it. Is it just me, or is this how dealerships are run? Are the service departments as clueless as the sales departments? Thanks for any input and again - great site.
