Not a luggage problem.

I got the same 2008 motor. I have 45lt cases on both sides on a swinging givi mount. One side is hanging out more because of the muffler. I put at least as much load in them. However I have a 55lt topcase as well. I weigh close to you with gears. I do not increase the preload in the rear shock though, just a few turns. I do not have any shakes at 140+kms when I am going straight (not that I do it all the time, just in short burst because the milage drops drastically). At the curves it is the rear shaking thanks to the swinging mounts. Must be something wrong with your front end - I mean the bike's front end
