Hello all. Nice to find this Forum. I am considering the purchase of a VN 750. My only concern is one of the vehicles ability to support both my weight and on occasion my wife. I am app 290lbs and she is 120. Combined we exceed the max. load limit as I understand it. This motorcycle will be primarily used for commuting and recreational in state driving. No long distance [ in excess of 200 miles one way] driving contemplated. Minimal twisting and winding of roads in my area. Speeds will seldom exceed 65 MPH as driving will be done on state and county roads. Interstate usage will be limited. Will this motorcycle work for a porker like me or do I need to heed friend and co-workers advice and go the Harley clone route. Your candor will be appreciated. P.S. I last rode bikes to any appreciable amount in 1978.
