But yeah, if you're not racing the thing and still want to daily drive it, ditch the spare tire and accessories and get a lighter wheel/tire combo. Aftermarket exhaust will be a hair lighter as well.
I wasn't gonna say it, but that's always in the back of my mind when I see people who are larger doing things like getting lightweight seats, removing spare tires and whatnot. A human being can weigh a LOT and it is the cheapest thing to modify (free).
