Well it's been almost a year w/o a bike and I'm ready to come back. I sold the SV650S and kept the 02 F4i around a while because the wife liked it better. The 01's weren't exactly lookers. Well it's time to get back in the saddle and it's my choice. I'm 99% sure I'm sticking with a V-twin so it's got to be an SV. Now my delima is, do I buy a newer 650 or step up to the 1000? I loved the 650s but several times I remember asking for a little more. So can anyone help me choose? Is there something wrong with the 1000's that i should be aware of? Is it a completely different bike? how about the newer 650's compared to my 01 which was bone stock. Are the upgrades available for the newer FI bikes a decent kick in the pants and would give me that little extra I needed on a few occasions? I've even considering going naked this time around. I'll take any and all suggestions and opinions!

I myself only weight about 150.

Understandable, I've been reading but haven't found anything yet, I'll keep digging.

Sorry, I managed to find a few links that list some of those same threads. Even saw your response in several. But I'm no closer to a decision than I was before.. haha

I see the "Flickability" of the 650 is above that of the 1000 and the idea that you usually have more fun on a bike you can push to the limits holds water, but it seems most wouldn't mind a little more out of the 650.

And seeing how getting that is not an easy task my thought would be to opt for the 1000. I'm already lighter than most at about 150lbs, shed some weight from the bike and upgrade tires, suspension etc and you could bring the 1000 into the realm of Flickable and allow me to ride two up if the wife so chooses...

I just don't know....

I guess I'll keep reading!
