Happy trail SU Rack with Givi Trekker

Has anyone used the Happy Trail SU rack with the Givi adapter plates? If so, what do you like or dislike about the setup? Any pics of the rack/plates combo would be appreciated... wondering how much width the adapter plates add?

I'm leaning toward getting the Givi 33L Trekker side cases, but I'm not sure between the SW-Motch rack, or HT rack... ?

I haven't used Givi Trekker cases but I have owned both SW-Motech & Happy Trails SU racks. The Happy Trails racks are probably the strongest racks made. There is no comparison, really. I have HTs on 3 of my bikes, I haven't seen any pannier racks that are better built.

Here is a link to the Givi Adapter Plates:

It looks like they add about 1/4" to 3/8" of width on top of the HT racks.
