John,

48’s are huge :005:

I’ve got 39’s, enough to carry most I need for a big journey.

Big enough for Taco’s and wine :008:

Love it Bro!!!    Thanks for the feedback.    If you only understood my wifey....   I will NEVER tell her she can't pack enough thongs and Bra's and swimwear.....    Heck, I would even manufacture a box for the handlebars to hold that stuff.....

I hear ya on the 48's being BIG.....   

Gotta lot to think about!

Only the 48's will hold a full face helmet.

Those who have the Outback Trekkers, please give me your thoughts on security.

The 48L Givi Paniers just arrived, a day ahead of the racks.  But hey, that gives me something to do this weekend (as if I didn't have a mile long Honey-Do list!).

These dudes are big! 

They will be just the ticket for a run to Alaska and back or a weekend, 2-up with the wife.

I love mine.  Big is good.  I've had a variety of bags and have to say these are my favourite by far.  I 24 pack sits nice flat on the bottom.  Just remember to balance the load especially when adding ice.  I nice bonus is while not entirely water proof they do as well as others I've had.  The added bonus is they allow the melting ice water to drain slowly ensure the perfect temperature on arrival.   :046:

Otherwise I pack 3 dry bags in each and have done everything from long trips to grocery runs and they've always worked well.

The quick release racks are a treat too.
Bikes are like women.  What you want and what you think you want change after the first ride.
