I got a few pictures of the bike fully loaded and ready to roll. It handles a little sluggishly with all the kit and it feels like it may tip over if I am forced to take a sharp turn, but on the straights, it just sails right along. As I ride it more frequently with a full load, I am sure handling it will become second nature.
It is a somewhat strange thought that all of my worldly possessions for the next three or so years, will fit into that little yellow bag! It is a little scary to give up so many amenities that I am used to, but I have to say it is also really liberating to boil life down to the essentials. Time will tell how it plays out in practice.
