Just curious. Perhaps trailer + rear panniers + front panniers + rucksack. **kg?
What was it like?
Scary as that's just over the excess fat I reckon I'm carrying around.
I was 9.5 stone in 1999. 13 stone now, at 29 and 5'8" although I have grown abit now.
I moved about a 100 kg load distributed around my front & rear panniers and trailer a few weeks back, and when I moved my workshop tools (first worshop move this year) in January I did a 19 mile journey on my Falcon Explorer with; 25kg in the front panniers, 18kg in the rear panniers, and with close on 35kg loaded on my 10kg trailer, which with me at 79Kg makes it one tough bike.
i once carried 18.5 stone on the saddle
I never weighed this lot, but it included 3 boxes of 180 teabags, 6 jars of pasta sauce, 6 tins of waterchestnuts and bamboo shoots, some rice, 18 toilet rolls and my riding kit (boots, helmet, chaps and crop).
The Fridge and cooker, but seperately.....

Not much. A Laney bass combo and a 1978 P-bass. We had a gig, in the woods.
Christ, that bass gets abused. Didn't even put it in a hard case.
I find that 23mm tyres are just ideal for pulling a trailer through the woods.
On the way back I carried a Cajon too.
It's weird pulling a trailer through the woods at 1 am.
I used to take a month worth of grocery home in my 65 litre rucksack. no idea how much it weighed but it hurt!
We think the trailer had 1/4 of a tonne of hoss muck in it, in this load:
It took me 6 trips to move the contents of a tonne bag of sand to my son's house - but that was over a mile uphill.
Me, it was tough!
Probably 32 cans of Stella in four panniers at ten to eleven one drunken Saturday night. Having that much weight in low rider panniers (and being as pissed as a rat) makes riding with no hands very easy.
Where on earth did you find power in the middle of a wood?
Ive carried a solid wood door 3 miles...
Just rested it on the pedal and pushed the bike home, so doesnt really count!
