Handy and not Knocking it , but wouldn't it be better if the panniers (everybodys) didn't stick out so pointlessly far ?

Yep....but most aftermarket designs are based on two-up touring with adequate clearance for the pillion's legs.

these are modified givi monokey racks, using the 'monorack' rails as a basis for the mounts...2mm clearance for the stock indicators...about as slim as you can get with 35l cases; ample clearance for solo touring (or a skinny passenger!)

I returned a well known make of panniers because once fitted the gap at the front was so large I thought that if read ended there was a good chance of a foot getting caught in there and being ripped off. I sent pictures to the importer asking if I had fitted them incorrectly and they gave me a refund.
