Hi, Thanks for the reply,  I have a set of OEM Panniers and they are a pain to pack, however i have toured with them through Europe 'twice' and had no problems with them. One does become a dab hand at packing them and filling every 'nook and cranny'.  They are more aerodynamic than the right angled edged ones but top loading is far more convenient and more secure. The safety side of things is a concern but think id be more concerned about the bike, my good lady and my auld self and have had experience of kicking bikes away ( sadly) to save being used as a buffer  pad between the tarmac and my pride and joy.

I Have purchased the Trekker Outback ones this morning for a steal - it is the bracketry that i was looking for some knowledge on as i want the right side pannier to sit as close to the frame as the left.
Best Regards for the New Year..

Worst case: you can fill the gap behind the pannier with a toolbox or a couple of storage tubes (can of chain lube, some latex gloves and a few rags or a tire repair kit can easily fit in one.)

Yes, worse case scenario- would be to fill the gap as you say. I do have tool tubes that i have attached to the engine guards and use them to rest my legs on ( stretch them) on long hauls... they are really good for carrying camping stove fuel and are the perfect size for wine bottles , decadent or what ....I will buy a second set of brackets and cut and re weld to suit my specifications..
cheers.

Wine bottles!  Inspirational!

Photo of tubes attached to engine guards would be appreciated.

I can attest to the trekker outbacks being flipping awesome - I've got them on my bandit (which believe it or not is pretty bloody good on the dirt) and I'm planning on getting givi racks for my tiger to swap them as needed.

Alright dude, Did you manage to source a set of racks to fit the Trekker Outbacks for your Tiger 1050? and if so where? Im struggling with Givi as they state they havent a set of racks that would fit the Panniers to an early Tiger 1050....
