Givi e21 and Givi racks

Can't seem to find any pictures of the back of a 2012-13 with the cases installed on Givi racks. I'd like to see how asymmetric they are, and if I can fit a tool tube on the left side.
Anyone care to post a pic if you have this set up?

I have E21s but actually have no photos of them on the 2013.

I do have a few shots of the racks on a 2013 and there is enough room for a tool tube.

The racks and cases are slightly asymmetrical.







I can't slap the bags on and take a picture for you because I deleted the GIVI latches so as to run Wolfman bags on the racks. This should give you an overview idea of the racks with tool tube in place though, since the first photo was taken before I had installed the tube. The E21s are also almost exactly as wide as the depicted bags.

I like the looks of those Wolfman bags. Which ones are they? How big are they?

Expedition, which are about 20L, and are the smaller of the two sizes that Wolfman offers (the other size I believe is the Teton).

I have the Happy Trail racks on mine with E21's, and those racks are totally symmetrical from side to side, which means they stick out quite a bit on the left side. The upside is that there's room for not one, but TWO tool tubes.
