Nice power change and sound with K1200 Acra. Engine seems smoother. Loaded panniers create a pendulum effect, heavy weight better on rear of seat where a pillion would be. Also have camping gear to about 12kg. Have 60k on bike since new, mmm not need GF Tony.

Wow - that is one heavy battery. Weighed my old one for interest and its just under 3kg. Im going the single tank route (progress is about 2 weeks off - CF 690 rallye bashie copy mould almost finished - part fits brilliantly) but with the mould being a female its easy enough to make an insert that will allow room for a battery if thats your thing. Any downside to having your battery there - up under the seat?

For those who sit at home and dream-let them...Meoni
