I wasn't hindered at all by this set up, even on small trails. It's very light weight all in all, i'd be surprised if im carrying more then 15kg (not counting the extra fuel). Only thing I'd change is the tank bag, its slightly to wide for my taste but as i got it for 8 euros at a flea market it's staying for the time beeing.
My mate was equally pleased with his setup but will add another dry bag for Norway. Also we will both be carrying a tiny little chair for that trip. Neither of us are the comfortable type (as you can see i use the stock seat and did 1200km over three days) but not having anything to rest your back at for a week won't do.

It all packed out to this.

After a light crash I found out that the downside of soft bags.

Really do like the looks of that tent. Brand? Cost? Where can I get one
