Self control is not one of my strong points.

It's a lot easier for me too ride this bike at a relaxed pace than some of my others.
As I said, for me it is not a matter of horsepower. I have always been perfectly happy with 50 of them. And i also like to say, I love this relaxed bike for many reasons. I won't moan about "poor performance" or anything because I am happy with it.
I was only commenting on the "hidden 100lbs", that in my opinion won't hide at all when accelerating at slow speeds. This is where I feel the weight of it. That was all I was saying. There won't ever be a -50kg version of it, and I will be happy if I can get 5kg off (previously I was hoping to reach non-DCT total weight with my DCT bike), or at least not install anything that is not absolutely needed for my riding.
