Just done first pillion ride with the boxes on... what a disaster.
The boxes are too far forward for the pillion to be comfortable. Backs of knees wedged into front of boxes, cant get feet on pegs behind my legs (not enough space).

What the **** do we do now. £700 quid lighter and theyre no bloody good.

time for a letter to Givi methinks. Spectacularly unimpressed.

the outback trekker panniers are the 40 and 30litre approx sizes - lisa is a 5'5' size 10 so she is small. ridicolous situation to be in.

I am going to have to contact the supplier and see where we go from there.

I have the panniers. I crashed on a muddy trail and they didn't budge. in fact they held the bike up from having the engine slide in the mud. sweet! Mud.
