You willrun wideout ofhairpins[]

Seriously, it should be no problems if the tyres are OK and the pressure is good. Just set the rear suspensionto max preload. I've seen a movie where a Honda Cub (moped) handled a payload of 200 kg and the Hurricane is a warship in comparison.

Like R1000 says, adjust the rear damper to 3 (max) and the tyres should both be 42psi and ensure that the shocks have 6psi in each. Take it easy when two up until you and your pillian are moving as one with the bike. Safe riding

Just remember that even with all the adjustments done the ground clearance will probably be lower. i.e. your feet will be closer to the ground when you put them down. My wife is a big girl & it caught me out the first time. Hope you both enjoy the ride [sm=smiley20.gif]

Undisputable evidence that a bikeis basicallydesigend to carry apillion without problems. The driver manages to overtake on the outside in a severe right-hander. I guess the bikeis provided with the latestOhlins fork and rear shock to run this fast with the extra load,but it is still impressing [sm=burnout.gif]
