I don't care for the look of the Jessie's too much. I think they look like an ammo can. The nomada is only 36" wide. Not too bad.

Are these the 31/38L touratech panniers? Or the 38/45L? If it's the smaller of the two, does anyone have a picture of the larger ones from the back?

Are you turning them on in the daytime? There is a photocell that turns on the headlight. Could it be turning off your aux lights?

If at night, are you pointing the lights near that photocell?

OTD prices

I'm seriously considering a 2014 Super Tenere ES. I wanted to know the kind of OTD pricing you got on it.

First runner up is a KTM 1190, how much did you pay for that as well?
