Looks good...and pretty close in to the bike compared to some :thumb:

Can't wait to get out and about. Will put on more miles this year, hopefully. Been a wake-up call against pissing life away, this last year.

Those boxes look great! Nowhere near as wide as my old K8 used to be.

Can I ask ..... do you travel with a pillion? The panniers seem to be higher than the seat.

I haven't tried them yet with the other half but she seems happier with the extra protection, I'll let you know 🙂

Thanks. I have Givi V35s on mine. They seem high too ... and very wide.

What size is the top box, I have a small shad on mine but it is a bit too small sometimes.

They look good on the bike and as others have said slim too. Nothing worse than wide panniers and having to wait in traffic like a car.  :thumb:

Looks great!

Also got Shad boxes. Same SH23 as you. I got the larger SH58X topbox though. Please be aware that the screws that comes with it are not the best. I broke two after one year of driving. My local hardware dealer said that the quality of the screws are not good. I like the boxes though

Waiting for the new adapters for my new bike so that I can fit it on my 1050.

Also had the Shad tankbox, but I bought the Givi for my 1050 as SHAD does not provide a solution for the 3p system on the 1050. The Givi seems better for the tankbox solution though, so I am quite happy about that.

And yes, the panniers are great for the bike - narrow and also looks great. As I remember, SHAD actually use the Vstrom for showing these SHAD-boxes on the marketing material.

So now I got the adapters for the SH23. Unfortunately, I find them to be holding the premiere to far from the bike. When they were sitting on my DL650, I remember them as sitting closer to the bike.

Is your measure the premiere distance to your bike, what do you get?

They look really good!
However, I just checked and they are not available for the 2019 650😣

Was searching through the site.  Are these fitted to the 3P or 4P pannier racks?  What does it look like with them off?

3P system on my 650.  Very discreet!
