Oh the big dummy :D the length of that bike makes for hauling loads alot easier.

We often bike to and from the grocery store, I have 2 folding racks on the back of my bike that fit paper grocery bags perfectly. With two loaded bags and maybe a gallon of milk strapped on the top of the rear rack, I have to be VERY careful riding home. It's a ton of weight and makes the bike very unstable. I can manage it for about 5-6 miles, but any further and I think I would cry.

You'll learn soon enough, then you can decide what suits your needs.
