    Its only about 30lbs. I've owned a Vee and a Wee and they both handled the same off-road. A 490lb motorcycle doesn't feel any lighter offroad than a 520lb motorcycle. If "light" is important to a rider, I always recommend going with a true DS bike like an XR or DR. Been there...done that.... Love being able to ride 13 hours comfortably on my Wee. :clap

    What's the story on the second set of wheels under the trailer tongue and how do they work?

    After it's first dual sport ride. SOOO much fun! Met some nice guys from this site (believe it or not...) right in my home state, too! Now contemplating which tires to get to better accommodate the some mild dirt riding since the stockers are almost done. Did I mention that I love this bike?
