Yes, it's a current Mazda metallic white. Looks even nicer in the flesh than the photo's, he's really pleased with it.

Hey Cowboy, how about posting a photo with those bags from straight behind? I would like to see the distances to the outer edge on either side.

How wide total?

Are the outer edges equal distances from center? If so, how? Larger right bag or bracket length?

Dave's bike is a 650 according to his signature - but the photo's are of my friends 850 - not Dave's bike

Dieselboy - 40 inches total width. 19 on the right to center, 21 on the left - difficult to tell the difference from behind. The panniers are from Happy Trail in Bosie, the mounts from F800Depot. The mounts bolted right up no problems at all. Happy Trail also has a 7 inch model, mine are the 9 inch version. For TAT or other similar in the woods leave em at home and just bolt on some Dirt Bagz... otherwize you'll get hung up in the narrow tracks.

Thanks. I'm still in debate on what to go with for bags. What sold you on these?
