Well I drank the kool aid and now I have a set of black 37/48 Outbacks on the way. I already had the 42l top box so it was only a matter of time. My bike came with the OEM panniers standard. I am not too fond of them however, especially how boxey they look. The key is very stiff to turn and the latch is plastic as are the boxes. They only have some aluminum on the outside for show. I was hoping Givi would have come out with a quick release version of the side frames by now, but no luck. I may order a spare 37 l case for the right side if I feel the 48 is too large for daily use. I don't see 60cm making that big of a difference though. After placing the order this morning I spent part of the afternoon removing the OEM panniers and returning the bike to how it would come from the factory without them in preparation of the Outbacks arriving. I was really tempted to go with the Trax Adventure as they look to be well made and come with quick release side frames. I decided to stay with the Outbacks as I don't like how the SW frames pull the panniers in at the back and the Outbacks are a better looking bag in my opinion.  Here is my bike as it was before removing the stock panniers.

Would you like to sell those OEM pannier with the mounting kit at a bargain price?

I am going to hang on to them for now, plus they are keyed to the ignition so I would have to keep the locks. They will be good incase something happens to the new ones or even to put back on the bike when I sell it. OK I admit it, I'm a pack rat.....

Abong, yours did not come with the oem panniers?

Just wait for our southern neighbours (STOG) to sell theirs.  I got mine and Din Rima got his....matter of time, someone will sell  them.  I know one member that still has a silver oem panniers but not in a very good condition.  One of the lid's hinge was replaced and the plastic corners were glued back.  No brackets but a new one cost around US$190 plus shipping.
