Hi gents (and gals), I am looking at getting a new 1100, and my wife has expressed an interest in riding with me, which leads me to my question (and I hope this is the right place to ask). I called Yamaha about info on the 1100, and they stated it has a max carrying capacity of 419 pounds. Not an issue for most people. However, I am 6'6" and 300 pounds, which only leaves 119 pounds left. My wife is tall as well, and is not 119 pounds. So, anything I can do to increase the load limit of this bike? I asked about their other bikes, and all of them have similar load limits. I thought about a Trike conversion, but did not know if that would increase load limit. What do you all think?
