2 Harleys in a Puma 27QBC

Making the trip to Sturgis this year with 2 bikes. Need to figure out which bike loads first. One is 850 pounds and the other is just under 1000 pounds. I'm thinking the heavier one in first with engine over axles and then the lighter in rear. I would normally just load bikes and do a test run but the heavier bike is a 3 hour drive away so not a convenient plan.

Any advice, preferably from experience.

I load the heavy bike last.

My trailer isn't the same as yours but even with the lighter bike first I can still see tongue weights to 1500lbs with two motorcycles. -That's with a starting tongue weight of 950. Heavy tongue weight is great for a stable tow but that much tongue weight is over any half ton rating.

Being able to weigh your tongue when you have variable loads is a necessity IMO. Sherline makes a nice tongue scale.
