Just ride it.

If it breaks you can sue the bike manufacturer, the tire manufacturers, the shock company, the seat company, the state, and probably the federal government for not making laws that allow 500lbs of weight on a sportbike.

Can't we get creative with that pic? (photoshop) Imagine if they wrecked...it would measure on the Richter Scale! I would love to see some creative versions of that picture if it hasn't already been done..if it has, can someone post a link?

Get some stiffer shocks, I would not worry about it too much.

385? Shit, I think I hit that once with a passenger on my F4i. The bike turns into a fukking slug though with that much weight. I can only imagine what my 600 would feel like if I weighed 135 instead of 235... If only. Maybe I should start smoking crack to keep that pesky bone weight off.

My 450 supermoto on the other hand can't take passengers at all.

I weigh a grand total of 169 pounds with my boots, gloves, helmet and 1 pc suit on (153lbs in regular clothes). Feels like I'm strapped to a rocket.

Riding around with one of my female friends who weighs about the same as me, is absolutely horrible... especially on SS bikes with the rear seat being so high. I almost dropped it once doing a full lock U turn with her on the back but kicked the ground so hard I hurt my foot and knocked it back upright. Also the wheel comes up a lot easier with the extra weight on the back
