ahhh yes !!
Try it on a DRZ400 with 6' seat, a large ortlieb behind AND a 10l fuel container behind that. HORRIBLE !
I ended up ditching the fuel container so I could move the roll bag further back and then it was a dream. I could almost use it as a back rest, cruiser styleeee.
Having your weight right behind you is actually the best place where centre of gravity is concerned.
It's just a case of not having it too close so your nuts are up against your tank.
The hop hop jump dive hippy dance while getting on and off is part of the fun isnt it lol
