two harleys 27 xlr

wondering if the 27 xlr will carry two harley dressers, or is that too much weight? Don't want any problems on long trips.
Thank You.

The cargo capacity on our XLR 29 MBV is 1,500 lbs (I think). We put a Honda ST 1100 (725 lbs) and a BMW R-1100R (535 lbs) in the back with no issue.

You can check the sticker in the cargo area if you have one near you.

Just remember, the weight includes, clothes, beverages, chairs, dishes. It all adds up. If you are a family, with children, it really adds up. Can get to 500 pounds or more. After all that, what you have left is what you can haul. Check the post on cracked frames. Have no proof, but probably overloaded. Otherwise would be more of them.
