For comparison sake, the Touratech panniers are 8.5, 9.5, and 11.5" for the 31, 38, and 45 respectively, per here. 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.
