. Assuming that the Tiger 800 width is 42", the width of the HB rack is 22.4 inches.
Using the 38/45 TT pannier kit as base (also at 42") we can calculate the width of the TT rack out to be about 21", and the GlobeScout panniers on a TT rack to be about 40.5" You can mount the GlobeScouts on any flat sided rack, such as a TT, Holan, or Happy Trail setup.
Does that help? I hope so! I need a beer after all of that math...
A beer you deserve, Rob! So, bottomline...for an extra 100 dollars you can gain aprox 1.5 inches! *she wishes*
Just got to figure out if I plan to chop and weld these myself or keep them as is. Thanks and I'll be in touch soon.
