    I just bought a new Sertao and I want Zega Pro2 or Trax panniers for this bike.

    I haven't completely desided which ones I will buy, and I not asking for advise on one or the other brand since there are a lot of info on the internet regarding the panniers themselves.

    I am looking at either the Zega 38L or 45L or the Trax 37L or 45L. These panniers will be used for 2up trips mostly thats why I looking at the larger panniers.

    What I am interested in is if any of you who has or have had any of these panniers could tell me the overall width of your bike with the panniers mounted. If you have any pics of your bike with bags on pleas post and say what size panniers they are.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks

    Let me save you alot mula, get Holan Nomada 38L set. We just dich the OEM side cases from my wife G650Gs for Holan 38L. I run 1st gen Holan Nomadas on my 12GS. Rack is very strong, very similar to TT. I had Trax in the past( actualy still got them) Mounting do not close strong as Holans.
    Trax mounting is nice if you like to remove it when not in use.
