She can't handle more than 150 on the back. I didn't get her a Airhawk yet

I don't take her on the 250-450 mile days.

Only 150 miles? So she gets a one way ride to nowhere? Mate, Get her an Airhawk so she can make the 150 miles back. Lol
Cheers!

To the OP's question of manufacturer's recommended load capacity for the 400 -
I read that it is right at 410lbs. That is the main reason I traded in my Forza.

Have read that a whole lot of big bikes have an even lower man. rec. load capacity - many being in the 350/375lb range - which a lot of riders are ignoring.

Raising the shock and tire pressure to the max does not alter the manufacturers' maximum recommended load capacity, nor does it increase the capacities of other critical parts.

True.

Can you share one of the bigger bikes you mention? That's interesting to me. Makes the 400 an even more impressive machine.
