    I figure the 1.7 weight willl be more durable, and maybe my partner and I can bundle up together for a nap once in a while,...and what's a few extra onces on a motorcycle, right?

    Am I on the right track here, or is it overkill and the 1.1 will be just fine, and even be a bit lighter and pack up a bit smaller?
    I'm 205 and the BBdl 1.1 is fine but i don't know about the partner and you . Brandon will have to answer that.

    I emailed Brandon and he got me straightened out. The result: I'm getting a 1.1 dbl.
