not the most accurate of scales I suppose, but here we have truck scales that are open or "turned on" whether they are manned or not. I pull on the scale on my '05 12GS with a tank of gas, and consistently weigh in at 780 pounds. I weigh about 220.
On a trip to B.C. with full gear and a pillion passenger we hit a scale in Washington at an even 1000 pounds
