A bit wider, can't remember the numbers but something like 100mm

With Metal Mule balanced pannier frames and a pair of Touratech Zega Pro 38l panniers it's about 96cm wide. It's a perfectly "balanced set-up" although an after market exhaust has to replace the massive OEM exhaust that was fitted on the mk1 T800 to get the frames to fit.

note:  i had chopped my pannier rack also.  I used a set of givi 21 litre panniers for shorter trips. Nice and tidy.

In response to a recent thread concerning handlebar width, I measured:
35 L. Pelican cases on SW-Motech sideracks -- 950mm.
Luggage = 155mm wider than h/bars & 35mm wider than mirrors.

and I've rosin in my pocket for my bow.

and I'm well prepared to ramble I must go."

What I did the first time I ran panniers,was to put 2 traps  on the bars sticking out.
just because you have your eyes open does not mean you are alive!
