Re: Reactions to the 14 690 so far

Today I did an experiment and carried about 30 lbs of groceries on the bike (including a watermelon just to see if I could).

While the bike did it just fine, I did learn that it's not nearly as fun to ride that way (cornering feels really weird).

I've seen a lot of people try to turn the 690 into a full fledged adventure bike with the front tanks and all.  If riding with the additional weight is any indication, this does not make the bike more fun!

I really like the light-weight hooligan nature of the bike and want to keep it that way.
