Now thats a testament not only for the durability of the little Versys, but yours too.
I did not have the bike carrying most gear. Carried camping gear and had to be ready for temps from 90s in south to below freezing in Canada. At 69 I carry more creature comforts than when I was younger such as Alps Mountaineering cot, REI Flexlite chair, a Noah’s tarp that gave us protection from rain we had nearly every day, Gerbing heated gear, spare tubes and tools to change one on road Etc. I was close to max gros Weight limit of 300x.That’s giving up a couple hundred pounds lol? Did you forget anything? Sorry just laughing, not pointing.
