How accurate are the manufacturers recommendations of 408 lbs. on the 1996 Gold Wing? My wife and I combined out do this by about 90 lbs. any thoughts besides "dieting". We have been out for several two hour rides and the machine seems to perform fine, no lack of power, no issue with braking and no noticeable change in handling or ride comfort. Oh! my wife is worried. Thanks for the non critical input:)

I'd say you and your wife are typical riders on the Goldwing. Most riders over 35-4- (complete with luggage) will easily outweigh the Honda guidelines. That's all they are are guidelines so don't worry about it and enjoy your machine, Honda are always conservative with their weight suggestions.
