My bags were so heavy coming back from ECM the rear sat on the ground rather than the front when on the center stand.

Maybe I will run it without the panniers and see how different it is. I agree, the regular Multi feels smaller and the weight always pulls up the front on the center stand.

Started light dirt yesterday, now that I am at 500 miles, but before I add the enduro bits (crash bars) and Anakee Wild tyres I did not challenge the bike much. Just getting my "dirt legs" back.
Bike has great balance under your feet. Feels very responsive to shifting weight, much more nimble than the GSA I trained on at Rawhyde. Seems a bit more intuative and you feel less low slung weight as you turn. Also, less abrupt weight transfers than the GSA even with a full 30l tank of gas.
I leave for Arizona Friday to test at the Overland Expo where I will be pushing through sand and varoius test tracks set up by RawHyde. I hope to have all the bits and tyres on and will post my two cents as I collect them.

Can I know your height?
The high CG reported by a few riders really get my concern
I'm 6ft1, still waiting for local dealer to have the demo bike

I am 6' 195 with a 32" inseam. I am able to reach the ground in my boots on the road, but toes in anything else. In Sport and Touring.
Bike is lower in Enduro and easier.

Anakee Wilds on Wednesday

Prepping for AZ trip Friday.
I will have the bike shod with the new Anakee Wilds and hope the enduro kit I ordered will be in by then.
Will post pictures as soon as they are on.
