The 650 is heavy when stopped, not when its moving. The longer you ride it (experience), the lighter it gets. Still, it's not a beginners bike.
I've ridden in your backyard (Santa Cruz mountains) many times. AMAZING roads - Pescadero Creek, Tunitas Creek, Skyline, Alpine, Big Basin - which the 650 handles with aplomb. And to the East, Mt. Hamilton road - oh man! Be prepared to have a blast.
