I don't have a pic that I can easily post up, but I went with wolfman expedition soft bags on the side with a pelican top case.  I think it looks awesome, not heavy, not going to break my leg, waterproof, big enough and makes me not bring along a bunch of crap I don't need.  I mostly ride solo, so that helps as well.

Bumot 40/36L:

I definitely think this is the best looking set-ups for panniers!
Externally, symmetrical and a balanced look.
Most other set-ups just look odd.  O:-)
But I don't like the look of square boxes anyway, so......

Thank You everyone!!  I REALLY appreciate the input.  I had never even heard of Bumot panniers.  I'll take some more time this weekend and research costs and weights,  etc., etc.  Especially thanks to those who posted pictures!  I have Hepco and Becker boxes on my KLR and the rack seems to "wobble".  The rack is a quick release with the cam type mounting.  The boxes also stand way off from the bike and looks a little funny.  I'm looking hard at the Jesse boxes although they seem to be heavy.  I think @ 16 & 18 lbs for the different sizes.  Thanks again everyone!

I almost went with the Bumots, and may still someday, but I got a nice used set of the OEM panniers, racks and interior soft luggage from a forum member for a great price and I could not be happier with them. Suit my needs perfectly. People sell them all the time for about 1/2 what they are new.

Don’t let the OEM pannier locks scare you off - you just push down on the lid before you turn the key, That simple. And they are waterprooof.
