Yep, those levers get around! :lol3

I've never owned an electric pump. Even in the shed I use a manual floor pump. I need the exercise :D Besides, the 2T doesn't have a battery to drive it.

The 690 is the next generation LC4. The 690s are much improved, and will be younger.

The earlier 640s had 28 L tanks, later ones 25.5 L.

There's loud, and loud. The booming of 4Ts echoes off the hills for miles around, but you only hear a 2T up close - the sound doesn't travel so much.

Peet's comments are spot-on. The 640 wins for me because it is the better solo/hard enduro bike, and it's also cheaper all-round. For more road work and/or two-up, the 950 wins.
