What's the heaviest load you've carried on a bike?

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 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).

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.

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.
