The flooding in Duluth is national news. Animals are escaping from zoos, homes and buildings are being damaged, cars are falling into sink holes and roads are closed.

There’s nothing like a long trip on a motorcycle with your favorite passenger. It’s a beautiful day, your bike is loaded with everything you will need, you have your significant other riding behind you, a full tank of gas, and the open road. Sounds perfect right? Well while you are enjoying your trip with a fully loaded bike, you could be doing serious damage to your motorcycle’s performance and its tires. When packing your bike for a trip you are usually most concerned with what will fit, but you should really be focusing on how much everything weighs.
