Anyone have CG issues with carrying that much as crew? If we dropped 10 gallons, could I get away with putting that weight in the baggage area?

If I have 480 pounds for pilot & passenger, 40 gallons & 95 pounds baggage that puts me right on the limit. At 10 gallons fuel I would go just past the aft limit.
