You must have smelled delightful that entire time as well.
My last 3 week trip, I took a duffel bag, a tent and tank bag. I don't see the need to go making a stink about how others choose to pack. If you're that offended by other people taking more than you choose to, go to a bike rally and pick a fight with someone on a Goldwing. And if you're going to play it up as a safety issue, I've seen people on cruisers with similar set-ups that have made it across country and through the Dragon just fine... slowly perhaps, but they didn't lose any items.
