I installed our Safaris on the weekend, fine bit of kit..... but!

What were they thinking when they put 4 imperial bolts into the forward ring mounts. It's a metric bike and every other fastener on the panniers is metric, so now "just in case" I might need to tighten or loosen these bolts we are forced to carry a suitable imperial allen key which will never have any other use on the bike.

What a silly idea, I am going to drill and re-tap them to a suitable metric size.
Cheers, Mike
