It's interesting the article uses the example of 40mm being too much sag. Sport bikes have less travel than V-Stroms. 40mm is an excellent number for our bikes.
It will be fine.This reminds me that I have been meaning to ask about carrying a passenger.
I want to take my hadicap brother for a ride on my bike, but he is pretty big. I am 6 foot 3, around 210lbs with gear. He is about the same size, maybe a little lighter (like 200lbs with gear)
I THINK based on the GVWR for the bike, that it can handle 500lbs worth of passenger but I don't know if that includes fuel or not.
Would it be ok for me to take my brother for a ride based on my and his weight?
