  1. I notice you omitted the weight for this bloater.. by design.?
    You know I loathe the current trend for boat anchor bikes, having been brought up with “add lightness” being hammered into me.
    I’m sure you know it but the factory spec for this bike is 259 kgs~ 570 lbs.!
    Comes round.. a little.
    And that of course is before it is loaded with any panniers or whatever and before a pillion mounts it.!
    I realise this monster is not so far away in size from other big trailies, but even so.?
    I wish you luck with this one.
    What ho.
