I`m looking for stories of just how much kit people are able to load up on their scooters to tour and what scooter did the job?

I recently went for a tour to the south of our Island (Negros Philippines) which is around 5-6hours with 2 stops and stayed overnight.
As the other guys were all on sport bikes I had to carry all the kit.

1 passenger
3 x boxes full of peoples overnight kit
under seat full of stuff for the journey

I couldn`t imagine what the total excess weight was but it was a lot!
This was on a Kymco Xciting 400i
