    Sure, if you're a good rider. But if you're crap like, uh, say, just by way of example, me then weight matters more because I'll be picking up the bike at least a hundred more times than you will and I get tired easily too.

    I'm also looking forward to video of Walter putting it through its paces!

    Very beautiful bike Mr Colebatch!

    I too would be interested in hearing, and seeing, your plans for Boris....

    River fording, bog pushing and taiga ripping I assume?

    I will try and get it on some other scales, and see if the MOT scales are out. Cause I have to admit its about 8-10 kgs lighter than I was expecting

    So do you carry around that little piece of wood to place under the kickstand everywhere you ride??

    Joking aside i have followed this build from the start. I am very impressed, jealous, lustful, excited.... (insert appropriate adjective here). Can't wait to see you ride this machine on your next adventure!

    That would be interesting - as 145 Kg would put the total
    weight for your bike (32 L fuel) about the same as the 690
    RFR dry, except your bike would have a full fuel load...

    Personal experience - you can leave the Vegemite at home.

    Why would you leave the chain lube at home?

    Seriously though. Vegemite for bearing grease, marmite for chain lube.

    Your pretty close to the same weight as my 640... The 03- 640 weighs 389 lbs with 25.5 litres of fuel on board..

    And about 10kg heavier than my rally prepped XR650R. You have a few extra bits though - like an electric start for one :-)
