So... now, it looks like I have to trailer the bike to be legal.... that sucks!!! I should have bought an other Class A... Live and learn.
Dealers and manufacturers should be ashamed of themselves for selling a product like that. I too learned the hard way (but cheaper) when my brand new hybrid TT had all of 300 pounds of cargo available on it once the propane was mounted on the front and the hot water heater was filled.

Talk about disgusted !!!

It taught me one of the most important lessons when buying ANY RV; check that OCCC label !!!! Its right there, in bright yellow. Read it, understand it, and use it in your decision making process.

Dealers and manufacturers should still be ashamed of themselves for selling a product that is overweight almost right out of the gate, however its not like its exactly hidden from the consumer. One need only look.

yes, what a 'hidden' none asset it is to own one like this. Right now looks like my rear axle pinion bearing is going south. It's humming under acceleration, hasn't gotten worse but at 55 mph it does hum rather loudly. Am hoping it is an easy fix but doubt it. also hope that when fixed it stays fixed for long time.
