^^^ this is my idea of a loaded touring bike with a week's worth of gear/food and a spare tire is a significant addition and one I would not bother with. It's just dead weight 99.9% of the time and I don't let fear rule my decision making process. If I did the "what if''s" would pile up faster than I could load them onto my bike.
