Explanation:
Most Harley-Davidson machines had a decal on the right frame down-tube. Curiously, H-D lists GVWR, plus Gross Axle Weight Ratings (GAWR) for front and rear wheels, but not wet weight or carrying capacity. - http://www.soundrider.com/archive/tips/motorcycle-gross-vehi...

Improper load balancing or too much weight is a concern to motorcycle manufacturers. Both the VIN plate and owners manual will list the Gross Vehicle Weight Ratings (GVWR), the overall weight of the bike, and the maximum weight that the bike should carry.

What's more, the manufacturer of the motorcycle will have GAWR readings for the bike. This stands for both front and rear axle of the motorcycle. For instance, a passenger sitting on the rear seat will put most of their weight on the hind axle/suspension. - https://theusatrailerstore.com/blog/tag/motorcycle trip tips

What Does GAWR Mean on a Vehicle?
GAWR is the acronym for Gross Axle Weight Rating. It is defined as the maximum allowable weight that can be put on an individual axle of a vehicle. Thus, basically, it is the weight limit put on the vehicle beyond which it shouldn't be loaded.

Both the front and rear axle have their own individual GAWR. This rating also assumes that the weight is evenly distributed on both the axles. Though the definition of GAWR doesn't mention what all this rating takes into consideration, several vehicle buying guides state that it includes the weight of the vehicle, cargo, as well as the passengers
