    Tennessee will allow up to 46K on a Tandem
    Arizona will allow a wide range of weights depending on your axle spacings and widths. They have charts for it.
    Ohio will do up to 50K on a tandem.

    That's something new for Tennessee then. I'd have to verify that. Either way I said don't quote me lol. I knew things were off.

    And lastly, the one asking the questions, did you not do any research? Just figured, I'd buy and RGN and that's it? Like you really have no idea what your able to do on it and this forum isn't the best place for answers..

    i did some research
    know it'll do everything i need it too for what i do
    i doubt i will ever push over 60k
    based on my experience level i wouldnt want to do anything very heavy or technical
    but i find the upper limits interesting and i like to learn
    i dont take any answers on here as absolute but it gives me ideas

    put it this way, i know what i dont know - thats a safe place to be i think

    i pull step alot. but this will give me an option for some better loads, i think.

    my friend tells me the limiting factor is the frame rail at the steer spring hangar location on my w900
    i have heard that is a weak location so iwill be watching it like a hawk

    Does your rear spring hanger have the bolt that goes through the lower flange? From what I hear, those are the ones that crack.
