I'd go the 636. No-one on the road needs a 1000 in my opinion. The 636 will handle better in the twisties so unless you wanna go faster in a straight line the 636 is the way to go. I wouldn't think the 1000 would be better on the highway except maybe revving lower (?) as it's riding position is just as aggressive.

How does it go?

You can put a fast rider on a slow bike and you'll have a fast bike.

What part of Oz are you from Viper?

Don't forget to change your country in your control panel.

I learned on a 1000 and its wayyy too much for the street, it goes thru tires way too fast and it will wheelie from 1st all the way to 3rd and thats crazy that you cant go full throttle ever cuz that thing picks up too easy. I got my 636 to hit the track and be able to use a good bit of it with out it wheelieing, i mean the 636 comes up in 1st but after that you can use the power. but thats just me and thats y i got a 636

I hear ya green viper. Been raining for days now and forecast doesn't look all that good. So much for sunny Queensland. Sadly, the bike is my only mode of transport so I'm getting a wet arse everynight.

I ride the bike every day too - I have a truck as well, but it only moves to haul stuff too big or heavy to fit on the TL (like the MX bikes for example:)). It rains a lot here and I've found waterproof kit to work quite well - I'm almost always totally dry when I get to the office, even after an hour+ in the rain:thumbup

Not hard. Just gotta book a driving test, you drive around with the instructor for 20 minutes or so. You can have 8 crosses or something (?). But they pick you up the tiniest of things. I can drive. I just cant park. Reverse or parallel. I haven't really tried though!
