The bike is in hibernation, no photos from the rear, sorry. Less wide than the handlebars, which I find important!

Likes: the fact that when I dropped the bike totally on its side there was no damage. I like the separate compartmentation of 4 bags, gives me a chance to split things up. I get my tent including poles in 1, sleeping bag, liner, airbed and pump in another, 2 water bottles and food in the third, cooking, washing and medical in the 4th.

The boards attach with machined alloy brackets and clamps, I swapped the clamps for M6 screws for extra security and carry an 8mm ratchet ring to remove quickly.

No dislikes, I guess in theory they are less secure than locked boxes, but if someone wants to screwdriver a lock or prise open an aluminium case they will do.
