I am definitely getting either the Givi Traker Outback Alum Panniers or the SW-Motech Trekker Adventure Alum panniers. I am leaning toward the Givi's Just so I have all Givi Gear. I am definatley getting thier 58 liter Top Case.

I am trying to convince the girlfriend to go moto camping with me But I was wondering how comfortable is the passenger on the AT with those hard panniers installed. I am looking at the leg position of the passenger footpegs and it looks a bit cramp even without panniers. Can the passenger even reach the foot pegs with the cases on?

What do u think of the touretech.am thinking of one of those 3 makes
I have no idea what you meant by this message. "What do you think of touretech" I assume that was a question. What do I think of touretech what?? The company itself? But that company is "Touratech" no e between the r and t.

My wife is about 5'8" and has no problems with SW Motech Trax ADV bags. She says it is a little less room than our ST1300 but not an issue. Our last ride was 3 days of 300-350 miles per day.

I have the OEM panniers and my 6'3" son has had no problems with leg postion/comfort over 2-3 hour runs. His size 13 feet hit the back of my boots though but not enough to distract me.

DLG and eltel62 Thanks for the answers. That make my mind easier. I am probably going to get some aftermarket footpegs for both me and the passenger. I have read that the AT standard footpegs are too small.

Anyone have a picture of the passenger on the bike either with or without the panniers. I would like to SEE the foot and seating position

I have replaced the standard pillion pegs with the Honda comfort pegs and she likes them much better. I have replaced mine with pivot pegs, much better also.

I have the Givi Trekker Outback panniers and 58L top case. My wife is 5'4" and is very comfortable back there.
