Huge? I actually wish it were a little more roomy but then again I was raised on big framed husky's, Cam Am's and KTMs of the 80's. I'd like to find a taller saddle some day but the Rencazzo the previous owner put on it is like a sofa.

I had to drop my truck off once for undercoating, I unloaded the 640 to ride to work, set it on the center stand to let it warm up and got my riding gear on. I turned to get on it and to my shock, it was gone! I kept turning and saw it had vibrated down the parking lot and the rear tire was hanging into the street.

My friend, the previous owner, rode it 4000 miles to Alaska and back for the Alcan 5000. Said he'd do 500 miles or more a day and lay in the motel at night still vibrating!

Personally the vibes don't bother me, I can ride the beast all day long.
