In the above pictures the Blue waterproof bag I have on the seat is holding a Catoma Conga tent, a folding camping chair, and a thermarest sleeping pad. Once we set up at the site the bag doubled as a cooler holding 2 cases of beer with ice, and man did it get cold. The 51 litre bag in the back is full of clothing, a cycle pump tire plugger. I have to say even with all that weight on the bike It handled great. I had the ESA set on one up with luggage, and the dampening on normal. Once we set up camp, and I unloaded the bike I kept the preload on one up with luggage, but switched the dampening to sport. Made a big difference on the Blueridge Parkway once the bike was unloaded, but on the super slab it's barely noticeable.
