Now the question. I weigh about 65 kg (144 lbs) and give or take about 25 kg of luggage (paniers included). Should I really use the 1+luggage or just stick to solo rider? While riding I don't really notice a difference. (I put it in rain since it is pouring with rain here).
I weigh the same as you and will leave it in rider, no luggage, when the panniers are fitted. I read somewhere that the rider without luggage is set up at the factory for a rider weighing around 175lbs.
