The Yamaha should handle that easily. Eighty pounds is less than a small passenger.

2009 CF Moto Fashion- 16,023 miles

That's 30,049 China Scootin miles and Counting.

You'll get get a bit of wind drag from the things sticking out the side and it will tend to require a little more throttle to get your usual cruise speed. Naturally you'll use more fuel than usual, but you should still be OK.
