The 650 is a very good bike. The 1000 is better in almost every way, and at a higher price. More power (more fuel consumption), better clutch, better brakes, better suspension, very good frame geometry, more electrical output. You won't go wrong with the 650. The 1000 might put a bigger smile on your face.
"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.
"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."
