As I told earlier I have a Trekker 33 on the exhaust side and a Trekker 46 on the other side....
I think they are 5-8 cm out of the mirrors each side...
Very good quality wise, not too heavy and the optional top opening is very nice...

Indeed you did..  :001:

I went for 33 both sides because I have a cunning plan...  :007: I have and aftermarket can which is narrower than the OE and plan to cut, weld and powder coat the givi bracket to pull it in by between 38mm to 50mm.

Just need someone who can work out where and how to cut the thing because all the little cross members are at an angle...  :087: :087: :087:

A job for the future me thinks...  :001:

Those Givi trekkers are good panniers, but don't double as seat & table like some others. eg Trax adventure 37/45L they're almost as wide as the OEM inside out tardis boxes, that reside in many lofts, but hold loads more. The Givi topbox is brill, holds 2 f/f hats easy.

Also: '16 Tiger 800, '95 Yamaha Serow, '58 Ariel FH.

Some guys fit a tool tube in the space left by removing the high level can,

Then I cannot find a reason that they wont fit...
I have sw motech carriers and I have fitted givi trekker panniers. A 46 on the left and a 33 on the exhaust side....

you have a pic of bags from behind?  I have the appropriate mounts, but have not decided which cases to purchase.  My gut tells me get the biggest bags possible, but my sense of aesthetics tells me 33/46 might be the better way to go.
