How much can you carry on a motorcycle?
Trying to carry loads that are ridiculously large or heavy on a motorcycle is dangerous, and dumb. But since many motorcycles have load capacities that exceed 400 pounds, it’s perfect acceptable to carry as much weight as is allowed, as long as it’s properly balanced and secured.
How do you carry large items on a motorcycle?
Here’s how you can have it all.
- A Backpack. This is the simplest solution.
- Tank Bag. If your gas tank is metal, a tank bag is probably the next easiest solution.
- Saddlebags. Just about any bike has room for a pair of saddlebags tossed on the back.
- Top Trunk.
- Built-In Storage.
- Hard Luggage.
How do you carry groceries on a motorcycle?
If you have a front or back rack on your bike, strapping a crate or sturdy box to it is a great option for carrying groceries. You can attach it to your rack with zip ties, rope with reliable knots, or bungee cords for a less permanent solution.
How do you carry water on a motorcycle?
Carry them in PVC pipe attached to skid, tool-tube side of bike, or down low inside pannier racks. You could even fit quite a bit inside some Wolfman Rolie or Aerostich tank panniers. Many pannier racks will carry RotoPax, Kolpin, or similar water containers down low. Use the cross-brace.

How much weight can a 250 motorcycle carry?
What I meant to say was: I am wondering if the 250cc type motorcycles can hold a rider + stuff that would weigh over 320lbs or if it would break (or ride wrongor something). Then yes, the 250 I own is rated for 375 pounds total, so unless you and your gear weigh more than that you’ll be fine.
Does weight matter on a motorcycle?
Weight isn’t a big issue when you are in motion, the power of the bike is moving the weight around. Get down the dealers place, convince them to let you sit on the bikes and feel the weight for yourself. Weight won’t matter unless you are moving things by muscle, otherwise it’ll balance itself.
