Mmm, no tankbag, top crash bars, topbox, pannier frames or panniers for me. Also no camping gear and no pillion. I'll be OK :thumleft:

Topbox only goes on for commuting.

Good question though. At some stage police started channeling 4x4's through the weigh bridge near Komatipoort. It was chaos. Most was overloaded and even when not most drivers are not licensed for the weight they towed.

Wonder when the cops are going to send the large bikes onto the weigh bridge? I've seen a few that's clearly overloaded.

My single trips lyk ook so,  net gewonder oor al hierdie groot manne soos ek wie se bikes soos n Mozambique taxi gelaai is... Wat dit sou weeg?

Die probleem is ek en my vrou like saam ry op die bike net bang iets breek en ons kom iets oor

Tyre levers, cable ties, energy bars, spare buffs/gloves, bungi cords. Nothing too bulky, it's an irritation when you stand.

I wouldn't add the crash bar weight as it is not on the sub frame.

It is part of tbe total bike weight, these numbers are for the bike not just the subframe
