    I can understand how you feel about wanting one more gear. I've owned a 700 Intruder for 18 years now and putting an extra gear on it is near the top of my list, when it comes to improvements.

    get the 1400, I've had both and contrary to what has been said the 1400 is a much more powerful bike. The 800 is a great place to start but you will eventually go up to the 1400 or 1500. The 1500 has a lot of extra weight on it so ppl may feel like it does not rip as much but the 1400 is a smaller design like the 800 with 600 more cc's. How someone could say the 800 feels more powerful boggles me

    Your opinion. Not everybody is alike.
    I've been riding for close to 50 years and until 3 years ago never owned a bike larger than 600 CCs; now it's only 900.
    Don't believe everything that you think.

    I know what your saying about the interstate because the 800 runs at a lower rpm rate in higher speeds then the 1400 but it's I've had both bikes and the 1400 is perfect for me and my wife to ride together and the 800 seemed to lag

    Very well said, Doc. I went from a Harley Roadking to a Suzuki M50 and love it. (once I got use to the RPM change) Hey, I will trade a few more RPMs for a bike that is cool on the freeway, handles better in town, is 200 lbs less and does not always break down. (I had a lot of bad luck with the Roadking)
