lowered f700GS Payload...
Just sold my C14, looking at the F700GS as a replacement. I'm 5'8", and I would like to put a Russell on the bike, so I'm looking at the low suspension version. I'm #275 (my highest in a while).. BMW lists the max payload as #309.. Is this a stupid bike for me?
You may have answered your own question.
Pretty simple to put on your riding gear and everything else you would take with you and weigh it. I'd be uncomfortable exceeding bikes max but I see guys doing it all the time. Fwiw I hit my all time high last January and used the added payload from weight loss as my motivator. Amazing how much faster my bike is after losing 50. Now if I could drop the other 100 that I need to lose I'd have it made!
