Zega Vs. Moto-Sport Aluminum cases

Almost posted in Equipment section, but my questions are more Thumper (and 640 Adv) specific.

I'm gonna get some hard cases, 'cause I need 'em for some upcoming trips.

I've narrowed it down to two brands, and three possibilities:

1. Two 35L Zega cases (KTM Hardparts version) & brackets
2. Two "Baja" 26L Moto-Sport cases & brackets
3. Two "Bavarian" 37L Moto-Sport cases & brackets.

My desire is to have decent volume with minimal width. Both manufacturers appear to make beautiful cases, and the prices are fairly comparable with a slight value nod going to Moto-Sport. I like the streamlined look of the Baja cases, but fear they might be a tad small for practicality. If anyone has experience with any of these three choices for a KTM 640 Adventure, I'd sure lik eto hear about what you like and dislike.

Also, I would love to know the exact width (measured while mounted on the bike) of these three systems. I can't find any info anywhere about this. It's hard to judge from the pics on various sites about the bracket's widths.

I wonder if the Moto-Sport Bavarians might actually be slimmer than the Zegas when mounted, since I have read about people complaining that the Zega mounting system is wider than it needs to be on the exhaust side of the bike.

Thanks in advance for any help and info!
