Some people call him George. And some people call him Bigfoot. If you ever see a photo of him on his Harley you'll see why.

As a hint, well, the Japanese won't issue him a visa to visit Tokyo. It still hasn't recovered from Godzilla's last visit.

If you are "bored" on a 650 street bike.... i dont know what to say other than this sounds more like a troll post or an "i need a penis replacement" post than something serious.

First off, the 650 is (probably) a two-cylinder bike. the 1000 is a I4. Do you understand that a 600 I4 will put out more power than a 650 twin? AND that they will put out power differently as well. You are talking about taking someone whos driven a Ford Tempo and shoving them into a Porsche GT3 and say "oh youll be fine!"

IF you want more power, a 1000cc I4 is NOT what you should look at, either look at a 600cc I4 (CB600/ZX-6) or the triumph street triple 675 Three cylinder or something like a 1000cc twin like The Ducati Monster 1000 or Buell XB-12 series. (yea i know they are out of business but the bikes still exist)

I will also stand by the statement that statement to buy used especially first. You can get a couple year old version of all of the above bikes. It will be cheaper, so will your insurance.

By the way, did you say the insurance quote you got was $165 a month? holy hell. Thats expensive!

Expensive? Hell man, that's CHEAP! When I was 19, the reason I didn't buy that FZR400 was because the Insurance company wanted $370 a month (for a Frikken 400!). This was 1990, and that was essentially the entire cost of the bike... per year.....

My insurance agent lists a sportbike with a driver under 21 @ $6000 per year.
