Two up and gear too much?
It's probably no secret that the RT is the sacred cow at bmwsporttouring.com and there's an interesting arguement over how trully two-up capable the GT is because of it's difference in "permissible weight" of 992 pounds which supposed leaves only 370 pounds available for rider, passenger, clothes, gear, and then how do you pack for your trip...
370 pounds is certainly easy to hit between rider and pillion and then you've got the top case and side case that you've got to assume are going to be full. That's got to hit 70 pounds pounds right there. Scottie and I together are about 300 pounds so I can see that really easy, and really quick we can be easy past 992 pounds.
So my question is does it frigging matter and why, how and what can you do? Opinions, thoughts, ideas?
I'm not worried, just curious.
