I talked to a guy once who did product liability investigations for Yamaha. Said he had a case of a Venture rider once, the old full dresser type, that complained of getting a wobble when he had only gone about 300 miles. First thing I wondered was what kind of mileage does this guy get? Turned out he had filled up the top trunk with a bladder type of tank. It aparently didn't have any baffles in it, and as he used up the gas, the liquid started sloshing around in that bladder, which was upsetting his balance, creating a wobble. He actually complained to Yamaha about it. :wink:
If I remember correctly, gasoline weighs about 8 lbs. per gallon. If you keep the weight low, and baffled so it doesn't wave around a lot, you might be able to do it.
