Great looking GS! What model are the side panniers?
Thanks
Those were not intended for the bike they are v35 givi and I adapted them using the SW Motech SLC system. They came out of Kawasaki ninja. I modified them using spacers cut to fit, but they are sturdy in place and secure.

Yeah, they look great, but ...
I've gone from hard pontoons to soft bags when traveling. Only hard bag on my GS is a small Pelican look-a-like tool box on the rack. I put my sleeping bag and light madras on it, when camping. All my other stuff is in soft bags hanging over the seat. Even thou I drive with enduro type hard boots, I've come to learn the hard way how painful it is to get your foot caught between the bike, pannier and a rock. It's also easier to loosen the soft bags before lifting the bike after the bike has decided to take a nap. DAHIK ;)
