The pico chair was strapped on top of that. Everything else was distributed throughout the bags/trunk. Spent most of the trip up and most of the trip home riding in the rain, heavy at times. The Wolfman bag worked great, not a drop got in.
And here is the setup at camp in NH.
Mate. A part of the appeal of a big tourer like that is that it has the hard cases and trunk. No need to feel like it is cheating. If you DIDN'T utilise those features... there is no point having them.
The main thing is you got back out there and didn't sleep with plasterboard over your head!!
