Yeah, you'll add some weight. That's why you have to be sparing, and not put on every little (useless) piece of tin that Touratech offers. But there are a few things that really are necessary: bash plate, radiator guard, handguards, some kind of luggage (hard or soft). If you have the lightest bike that can't take a hit, what good is it? Find that line; but get the stuff that will make sure your bike won't leave you stranded on a trail!
