I recently made a 1600 mile trip with my wife, two full saddle bags and a full top box. Not only was the low speed handling much heavier but at speed it was almost as heavy handling. All the bags were heavy, I'm 6,2 220lb and she is only an inch shorter than me. Any mention of her weight and no one will ever hear from me again, not safe or smart. Be careful with the top box weight. It's high and makes a big difference.
