givi trekkers on v-strom 650

Hi,
I have already two givi trekkers panniers 33l and wonder how do they fit on v-strom with that pipe so high? I don't like asymmetric setting.
The racks must be sticking out very wide, right?

luggage comparison form Europe

Check this link. It has many images of luggage on wees and glees. Third one down is the givi 33l trekkers. Looks asymmetrical to me. Also, does not look bad. You can't see it with the throttle cranked up.

PS, some people get a larger case for the left (smaller for the right) to "balance it out".

"I don't like asymmetric setting."

The Strom looks like your buck toothed, pimply cousin and you don't want asymmetrical?
