I'm not talking about hard side bags here but something in the line of a Giant Loop bag or. . . . . .?

Yep, I've done a few trips loaded with gear and with 30 extra liters of fuel (loaded high and far back on the rear rack) and never had an issue. A giant loop and this config wouldnt be an issue (weights is held low on both the proposed aux tanks and the gl).

Hope it helps
