Do they? I thought they were too long to fit with the Givi bars. JKam's pictures look like they fit just right with his bars, but the Givi's come up 6" or so from the bottom of the tank, leaving only about 8" above the bars. You could mount the panniers so they're behind the Givi bars, but your thighs would have to be a lot shorter than mine.

I'm looking at the Wolfman tank panniers for this reason, because they're shorter from top to bottom and I'm hoping they will fit above the Givis.

If the Aeros actually fit, I'm gonna be sick, because I just sold mine after having them sitting around the garage gathering dust since buying a set of Mountain Suns for my GS...
