How much weight can the VTX 1300C really carry. The manual says around 400lbs but I've heard people riding with much more. is it safe to do so and what is a safe limit?

Damn if you have to carry 400+ maybe you should think about a truck or at the very least a tow behind trailer for the m/c :lol:

I am 6'3" 220lbs. So with that said I alone am over half that weight. Add a passenger and gear for a weekend trip. I don't know maybe 400 is enough.

I would bump up the tire pressure some for the occassion... but aside from adding some extra stress on the bushings and bearings -- I don't think an extra 100 pound or so would do any harm. Having said that, the most I've loaded my own bike (with passenger and luggage) is around 350 Lbs...
