honestly, from what I have heard regarding the 636, I might go with the 636. Everyone seems to rave them.

There's one example out of how many 636 owners on this board alone without problems? Also, Gary bought that bike used. What if I went and bought a used car and it broke a year or two later. I don't think that would warrant calling the whole model lineup junk. I know the trans. Is a known weakness, but there's hardly a bike out there without some sort of known problem.
