RE: bumpity, bump....
I know it's not the 650 but I thought I would post my own opinion about my bike...
I have owned my supermoto'd FE501 for just over a year now and I can truly say everytime I go out on it I amaze myself! Now I have gone the whole hog with this bike in terms of tuning and setting it up perfectly for supermoto'ing and, although I've never ridden the 650 I'm sure it can't be too much better... Put it this way... I scare myself enough on this bike and can't possibly dream of going any faster! That said though it's not just the scares that this bike give me... Sometimes, after a particulaly good set of bends where everything just comes together, I am quite honestly screaming in my helmet through shear joy! The emotions brought up by riding a bike like this are simply staggering!
I think what I am trying to say is that I don't think it matters which 'berg you get... They're all superb bikes! Just make sure you've got all the protective gear on!
