Nice pics, Bro! The 650 is a better bike for all around IMO. I have a 1000, and love the road torque, but when I get ready to replace her, I'll go with the Wee. Saw a ton of Stroms in AK two weeks ago. More than anything else. I did see quite a few BMW 650's, though.
The Stroms are great bikes. Reliable and handle/ride great. I'd take my Strom just about anywhere, with the confidence that I'll get there and back with no problems.
