I'm 5'7" and 160 lbs. I took had been only looking at middle weight bikes but really wanted shaft drive and less bells and whistles. I test rode a ST and bought it right away. Doesn't feel heavy at all even when sitting on it or navigating slowly. Like anything though... lifting it from a drop you will feel it. Also worth noting, I test rode mine with a 100lbs passenger too.
Well, long story short, I pulled the trigger on a new 2023 Super Tenere today. Did a ton of research and test rode a lot of bikes the last month or so, but the S-10 grabbed my soul by the balls. Long day. Tuckered out. More to come.
