I'd suggest the urban is an excellent solo tour bike but agree for two up its not the best choice. When I pack for a week or two includibd a usable tent that provides for more than basic condom protection, the bike starts getting a bit heavy in the back and I have to modify my mount and dismount technique. And I lose the joy of riding a light spirited bike. Had thought when I originally purchased that I would go the way of car trailering to location and then riding the area around the location but find I miss the long rides. So still looking for solutions. Have ordered a one wheel swing arm bolt thru the axle trailer from a firm in Canada, Trail Tail, that I have high hopes of a solution. Not cheap but just enough extra carrying ability to get everything off bike. Will send pics once it arrives and I get her assembled. If it works out planning on removing my Acme Moto panniers and placing everything in trailer. May install just a small top box for tire repair kit and miscellaneous.Understood, schubiee. My 28L top-box is a very light very cheap E-Bay product, but that does me perfectly well with about 6kg of all-up weight for a few days away. Were I to take my wife along that would barely be enough for make-up and hair-do stuff for her! I guess the crux of the matter is that the R9T is not really designed as a tourer or to carry much in the way of luggage accommodations.
