I did some math of my own from figures provided to me by TT rack owners. Figured you or maybe others would find it useful. Rob has covered the HB racks, however, a centerline measurement is still needed to find difference from right to left if using 35/35 combo. The below figures should apply to those using TT racks and two GlobeScout panniers on a Tiger800.

From centerline of bike:
TT racks and 2ea 35L GS panniers:
-Left side would hang 17.6"
-Right side would hang 20.35"
= aprox 38" width

TT racks, and 35/45 GS panniers
- Left side 20.02"
- Right side 20.35"
= Aprox 40"+

Plus side, you lose some distance using TT racks, downside, you lose 100 bones and the ability to disconnect racks.
