Hi the sh is a fine scooter we like it very much, but our combined weight and shopping in top box puts us over maximum load rate, we are always two up, I admit I didn't give this a thought before buying it as most people I expect. it is the accelerated wear on the transmission which for me has highlighted this, we would like to have a couple of weekends away on it each year but i would need something else to achieve it? it also dosent follow that bigger is better the silverwing has less than ours, it maybe that I will need to leave the scooter world buy a geared bike as this would cope better? Cb500x loaded no better but having a gearbox would make the difference in maintenance?
After doing some research it turns out that most scooters or bikes have very low loading allowances, which would make sense when you see them being ridden solo? If I was solo there wouldn't be a problem, how many of you tour/camp two up?
I haven't seen a 400 burgman in the flesh yet but it's a monoshock? I'm hoping that it will carry more weight?
The sh will be parked up for the summer as we are off to Europe next Sunday for several months in the camper time to think and lose some weight on the pushbikes will help the situation
