Both the 640 & the 690 will carry a moderate load no problem & there are a variety of racks available. For extended use on rough roads with heavy loads however both bikes need modifications - the 640 needs some gusseting welded to the subframe & the 690 apparently needs stronger tank bushes/bolts/something.

Cheers
Clint
