The other thing that concerns me is weight capacity. Is the "Max weight loading" for the whole bike or just for that tire? Because 468lb (the rated max weight for the 100/90 16 you listed) is close to the dry weight of my bike without a rider on board (add ~200lb for that.)

Most of the weight is displaced between two wheels NOT one, so the 468 lb weight capacity will easliy work for your situation even with you and luggage on board.
