How much is too much....weight

Recommended Posts

I have to ask opinion here from people who have an FJ already.  I saw a thread on heights for riders and touching the ground and all, but I am curious about how well the FJ will deal with weight.  I have not seen anything that suggests that there are any adjustments for suspension or anything, but I might be uninformed.  One of the issues holding me back from purchase is will the FJ hold me, gear, and possibly another rider and not be struggling with all that.  All the youtube videos I have watched have been a skinny 20 somethings with a helmet blasting around.  I have not really seen anything with a fully geared up bike and passenger.  Any thoughts?
