OEM luggage set

I am looking to buy one of two available 3-piece OEM luggage sets for the new 2012 Wee (either aluminum or touring) and can't decide which one is better. Maybe somebody has some experience with these sets, please share your thoughts. My main concern is the length of the side cases - I don't want them to interfere with the passenger pegs and jeopardize the passenger comfort.
Thank you for your opinions.

I have had a short passenger using the Adventure model (so that's aluminum Trax cases by SW-Motech) and they didn't have a leg clearance problem. Over time, I might expect the occasional knee-bump while mounting and dismounting, of course.

Thank you, BrianTRice! That's what I wanted to hear. My buddy has a Givi set and he says that with his saddlebags it's impossible for a passenger to use the pegs.

I have Givi sideracks and E360 cases on my K7 650 and those do encroach a bit on the passenger. It'll be a while before I can get someone to make a close comparison.
