I am in with the bigger crowd.
I had my 900 Custom for over a year. I am 5'9" and 215 or so... The 900 was great even on long rides, but I did find it a bit light on long road trips. I happen to get into a small accident, and lost the 900, so I bought a used 03 1600 Classic.
Is exactly as you would expect. In town, the 1600 feels bit heavier (traffic, etc), but when you hit the long road, wow, it is superb. Solid, plenty of power to stay at speed, and other vehicles don't blow you off. I miss the 900, the custom style looks cool etc, but I have found I do much more long road trips than in town, and the 1600 is built for that.
And we (my brother and I) found plenty of low millage 1600s in the $4 to $5K range, which is a great price for a solid bike. I also dream (or used to) of a V2K, bt the prices there are still a bit high (IMHO, for my budget).
