    HTC,
    What's the measurement across your rear with cases on?

    In other words, just how wide is your ass?????

    That's a fine looking bike, though!

    That's the same frame as from the Dakar too, then? I guess the 29/35 boxes with proper frame would bring that in several inches. What are your plans for the big gap on the right side? PVC, Deere manual tube, welding rod holder, "dual" exhaust stash pipe?

    Don't know. You can contact HT and ask. I was "asked" to ride the bike to the event by a friend - so I can't measure it. The Panniers are 7.5 inches deep (each).

    Just spoke to Happy-Trails. He was working on answering a couple of emails on this topic and had the numbers in front of him:

    Clif-Cut Teton
    7.5" --> 36"
    9.0" --> 39"

    Non Clif-Cut Teton
    7.5" --> 37.5"
    9.0" --> 40.5"

    What kind of tank bag is that? Looks like a nice size.

    I have the 7.5 panniers cliff cut being shipped this week :)
