I laugh at those thinking Suzuki's 650 twin isn't enough.  Bigok

I wonder if you did a Venn Diagram, how much overlap you'd get between those that hate the idea of a motorcycle with an automatic transmission, and those who also "need" 1000+ ccs, so they have enough roll-on power without having to downshift.

there is no need for power so soon if, IF, you can afford a trade-in / second bike in 1 or 2 yrs.


at 300 lbs. you're too big for a 650 v-strom as a permanent bike - to judge from my friends and my occasional ride.
since you have historical riding experience, and are > 40 yrs old, the dealer's comment
is accurate as to where you will really be in 2 yrs.   The question is just the path to get there...


650 v-stroms are good bikes and have held their re-sale ability well.
But, if you can control your throttle, and have self-confidence (your call only), then the used 1000 could work.
