So, it went extremely well!!!!
What you do not see is the gallon of milk in the backpack that is on my back in this photo.
Yes, i have full access to bags even with crate tied on. To remove bags, i need crate to come off.
Used some laundry line (plastic), works VERY well!!!!
Yes, the bags are on backwards, i didnt check when i put them on, but i will in the future, because they really need to be facing the right way for multiple reasons.
I weighed myself before and after holding everything the bike was carrying plus helmet & clothes. Normally i have bread too.
The N360 performed amazingly, and took what was once the most demanding ride i can come up with (grocery run) and made it FUN... i didnt think that was even possible.
What i did not carry was any bread aside from those 2 packs of bagels in the crate. The store i buy my bread at opens at 7 weekdays, this was 4 am. I've been trying to time my grocery trip so after 24 hour store i stop at other store after it opens, but i was anxious to test this out when traffic was minimal.
