You will struggle filtering with them.

Compared to my old 1050 boxes, sure. But then I'll be able to take more than a sandwich and a spare sock. They aren't small, but I think the foreshortening of the lens and the fact that the bike is on lock makes it look more pronounced than it is.

Great touring set-up though.  And he can filter to his heart's desire with just the top box ... 

In the US filtering is only legal in California so any long distance touring I do, the bags are irrelevant.  On local rides within the state I can easily do with just a top case.

That 30 liter top / side case is interesting.

I'm thinking maybe the SW-Motech racks add a bit more than Givi racks would, but I don't know because I don't have the Givi racks for comparison. Next time I put the boxes on I'll measure the width.

The SW-Motech racks are about 54cm wide, so adding in the 23cm per case the total width is by 104cm, which makes it rougly the same width as other conbinations.

The only way to reduce the width is to take smaller cases or get something where the right hand case has an exhaust cutout.

Wait.....California is the only state? I guess I've been lucky in Arizona, Utah, Nevada and Colorado. I've got to look into this.
Just did....you're right aarrrrgh.

I have the same racks on mine, they do stick out a bit but look better balanced than most. They also allow for a tool folder inside the left hand rack which balances the look of the exhaust. I like that setup, no wider than mine.  :031:

I measured these yesterday, Slaine was spot on, 104cm at the widest point which is the front of the boxes.
