Ridden both for a few hours

Went into the dealer to order the 800 but made a mistake and also test rode the 650. I found only a small power advantage on the 800 vs the 650. 650 for me was a more comfortable riding position and significantly lower. But a hard decision for me is the seat height for both 800 and 650. I found the 800 low seat significantly not as comfortable, less padding.

Your best bet is ride both for 1/2 an hour on a freeway. I was concerned about getting blown around and found that was not the case. Dealer's don't like to get their new toys in the mud.
And remember: life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.
