You can do a search on the site for "Dynamic Luggage System", or this video explains it a bit:

Basically, the same reason tall buildings are made to sway in the wind.

I have it on good advice the Trophy is quite stable at 100+mph fully laden (minus pillion).

I can confirm that... Have riden the Trophy, fully laden at autobahn speeds, 130 indicated, and amazingly stable

Very well put Cropbiker, and yes, our bikes love triple digit speeds.
