Which Pannier Mounts?
I also have the Givi quick release (with Kappa cases). I thought it would be nice to be able to easily remove the racks. If I had to make the purchase again, I wouldn't get the quick release version. I never take the racks off. I like the look with them on and they also make a great attachment point for a cargo net if want to carry something on the back seat or even strap a jacket to the rack using the net. The racks are holding up ok but I had some movement of the mounting brackets when I dropped the bike with the pannier on. I believe the fixed mount Givi racks would be a stronger design.
Edit: My cases are quick release using the Monokey system. I find that very beneficial but don't find the need to be able to take the racks on and off in seconds.
