My 2 cents again.. But is the bike heavy, yes, as others have said its primarily if you drop it or need to push it around.. Then again, its lighter than many bikes out there and really the weight is well placed. For as heavy as it is it's very maneuverable at slow speeds in parking lots and such. I feel no issues with the weight on single lane roads at slow speeds, and I suppose I have a hard time understanding these scenarios becoming tiresome or wearing on you. I will say however those are typically a lil more rough of a road and I feel the suspension could be plusher in this scenarios.. But wouldn't work as well on the twists then.
