Seems to me it's too heavy for an off road travel bike?
Obviously ... it can be done (above threads prove that) but will you be happy?
Riding a heavy bike in tough conditions is NO FUN. But some need to learn everything the hard way .... and they always know best!
The weight isn't an issue here, I've put a fully loaded gs12adv in places that some wouldn't dream of hence my choice and disregard, thanks for the other stuff mind..!!
The learning curve is the engine, keep it coming gents, big thanks cus just like Tesco's, "Every Little Helps"...!!!!!!
