I was looking at picking up either a 749 dark 04 or a 999 03. What do you guys think about this choice? I went for a test drive on a 749s and a 999. The 999 had more power ofcourse but the 749s was no slouch and seem to be more nimble and a smoother ride. Since it was a 749s it has the same suspension as the 999, and they were both stock. The weight is only suppose to be a 4 lb difference, but the 999 just felt like a heavier bike. I can get a better deal on the 999 but the 749 dark is still much cheaper.
