Here is 3 Medium Rolies strapped on, again with just center straps.
Hope that helps to illustrate a little bit.
I don't see any real reason to lift the seat up very often other than to look at fuses or air filter, since it has no storage under there otherwise.
Will be very interested to see if the rear subframe will take that much weight.. have you ridden with it much? Do you have the 70 degree tank on the bike?
We are enmeshed in the cancerous discipline of "security." And in the worship of security we fling our lives beneath the wheels of routine - and before we know it our lives are gone.
