I believe the Honda Gold wing is rated for 402 lbs before it gets to its GVWR.
Seems to be a bit of a hot topic in some circles, its interesting to do a google search on it.
For the record though last year on a two week trip camping I actually weighed my side cases and my top cases before and after being filled ,and it is interesting to find out what is considered in the base weight. for the R1200RT.
Maybe its because everything we brought was hiking style, light weight, but I was surprised that the total weight was about 60 lbs ,which is a good thing since the missus and I are not light weights . We exceeded the gvwr but only by about 20 lbs total.I was 260 ,she was 160.
