    With me and my wife on the bike, we are about 40 pounds over the listed weight capacity for the custom. Is that too much for safety reasons? The bike handles fine with the increased load.

    Bikes have wieght capacities for different reasons. With the custom it's on the same frame as the classic however the classic has larger wieght capacity. The reason being the skinny front tire supports less wieght. Ultimately I have to advise against overloading the bike, even with a larger tire, simply to protect the forum. Perhaps you should look at a motorcycle with a greater capacity.

    Thanks. I guess we need to start our diet sooner than later!
