And how wide is that total set up? Looks like 4 feet across.

The big box is 45 liter and the small is 35 liter.

41 inches from port to starboard.

They are mounted on Hepco & Becker quick detach racks. I plan to drop the bags and mounts in my tent if I go into a ride that has hero sections.

The opening between the left box and the bike would be a perfect place to stuff a kermit chair or two.

That's not a bad total width. Its cool how these racks double as rear crash bars in that case.

I am going to guess one set is bobbins and the other is an axle protector.

That is exactly correct. While I was ordering the R&G shock sock, the swing arm pivot frame plug, and the front and rear wheel spindle sliders/bobbins, I decided that I might as well get the paddock stand bobbins included in the same order.

Ironically I have now fitted the Triumph centre stand, and the paddock stand that I did use for a short while (including to fit the centre stand) was the sort with the flat rubber pads, the lift on the bottom of the swing arm, and don’t use any of the bobbins at all!

Really they are all just there to keep the swing arm looking neat in the event of an 'off'.
I have dropped the bike in the dirt and the front wheel spindle bobbin saved the surface finish of the bottom of the fork leg.
The SW Motech pannier frame (and pillion foot rest) took the weight of the rear of the bike, the engine bars took the majority of the bikes weight.
The swing arm (or any of the bobbins) didn't touch the floor, it easily could have. I am happy that the bobbins would have taken the weight and protected the swing arm from contacting the floor.
Pictures of the spill are in the thread here http://advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=21338368&postcount=1820
