Welcome from Atlantic Canada. I recently moved up to a Vulcan Nomad from a VStar 1100 and you're right, they are a lot heavier. You can't go wrong with a 650 and you found the best place to learn all about it. Lot's of friendly, knowledgeable people here who are more than happy to answer any questions you may have. We love pics here so post some pics of your rides when you have a chance.
