I had some Gobi's, but they are as wide as a truck and I kept hitting everything with them, boulders, trees, cacti, street signs, cars, newspaper vending machines, pedestrians, you name it. The mounting system is flimsy as well and I promptly destroyed it and resorted to securing the bags with straps.

I switched to the pelicans mounted up to the standard luggage rack and they were quite a bit slimmer. I put a good ratcheting strap around each one so I wouldnt rip the bags off the mounts and that seemed to work pretty well.

However the soft wolfman's and/or the Giant Loop Great Basin is my choice when riding mostly off pavement and off road.
