I stopped at the truck scale on the way home and weighed the whole setup at 350 kilos. With me off the bike the weight was 250 kilos. This scale measures to the nearest 10 kilos, so fairly crude. I had the suspension preload on the rear turned 100% in with the luggage and about 60% at different times. There seemed very little difference and no discernible difference in the rear end swaying.
