Sorry to read that. All my 750's are a bit over the 500 lb. mark but I can still move 'em around. Worst-case, I hope my first T160 will be the bike my kids have to deal with after I'm gone, even if I've had to ride other lighter bikes. But, absent a sentimental desire to keep hold of something unused, no sense in it deteriorating when someone else could enjoy it as the maker intended?
