    I have the TT 36 (?) ltr panniers and they are wide.

    45ltr would be massive IMHO.

    Apart from the width I can't see any other issues.

    Fat blokes bounce better

    Had two 36ltrs on my Dakar and they were fine. Easier to balance weight as well.
    We should learn from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism. [/I]

    I have one of each on my bike and it looks fine IMHO if you send me a an email I will post a photo to you if it helps....my rig is slightly widder than my handlebars but I cant say its hindered me in anyway and it absorbs kit well..... it rides sooo much better than with the Givi 42litre top box it came with which made it dance all over the place

    birdie1976@hotmail.com. You can send here. Thank you. The only downside is that it would catch a lot of wind resistance, apart form riding in traffic jams. It's roomy and takes a lot of stuff inside. HB makes solid thingies and I know that very well.
