Carrying a backpack on your back is not the way to go. Shoulders, arms take a lot of pressure. I have modified my monster to take pannier bags. Its a simple setup that uses andy strapz bags fro australia....I am obviously in Oz. The other thing is to get the weight as forward and as low as possible. Heavy stuff down the bottom of the bag, light stuff up the top. Minimize weight behind the rear axle.
