Is the Tenere 700 just a little too weedy for motorway work though?

Not sure yet but it will sit at 70 easily without any issues.

There's a moose loose.

Well not quite..but.
Thinking of getting mooses for my new toy.
No idea how to fit them...no idea of the limitations...do I also have a tube fitted?
It's a CCM 404....no more than 70 on motorways and not really hard use.
All advise welcome please.
