BMW R1200GS (2013 and newer) 40L Side Luggage Pannier System

SKU: BMWR1200GS201340S

The world’s toughest and most waterproof motorcycle luggage system proven by thousands of adventure riders all over the world. Fits 2013 and newer BMW R1200GS.

Complete Turn-Key System - 80 Liter total capacity. Includes two 40 Liter SKB cases, side racks, single key locks, mounting hardware, everything. No drilling or modification to the bike.

Nearly indestructible - Cases made with a tough co-polymer material and a heavy duty watertight O-ring lid seal - will not crack or shatter like hard plastic, will not dent & leak like aluminum, will not rip and tear like soft bags. The last side cases you will ever need to buy.

Secure and Convenient - Caribou Cases are on and off the bike in seconds with no straps or fasteners to fiddle with. Locks give you security and peace of mind while you are away from your bike.

Safety - Caribou Cases have smooth, large radius corners and are positioned on the bike for all types of riding and terrain - safer than the sharp corners of aluminum luggage.

User Friendly - Caribou cases are pre-drilled with pre-installed waterproof lid locks, lid lanyards to keep the lid from swinging down, and gear retention straps to hold things in the case while you open it. Optional inner bags and liners make life even easier.

Designed for the Long Haul - Caribou quick attach/release system holds the case tightly on the rack with an external locking latch that is adjustable to account for wear and to keep the system tight and secure forever. Latch is field replaceable and designed to release the case from the bike in a hard crash thereby protecting the bike's subframe and luggage rack.

Durable - All mount components are made of high strength powder coated steel with bushing material to prevent metal-on-metal contact - no brittle plastic parts holding the case to the bike like most OEM luggage.

Passenger Friendly - Plenty of room for passenger's legs and feet.

Flexibility - Super strong Hepco Becker “Lock-It” side luggage racks offer the best fit. Remove the rack in a few short minutes leaving behind small unobtrusive attach plates.

I recently purchased a 2015 BMW R1200 GSA that came with the OEM racks. After several weeks of research (and reading LOTS of opines of what sidebags are better), I opted to call Roger and buy the 40L sidebags and Hepco Becker racks prior to taking a trip last weekend.
I can attest to the fact that these are OUTSTANDING sidebags! Taking off the OEM racks and installing the HB racks took me a couple of hours (I don't work fast....just deliberate). The bag brackets took a total of about 45 minutes to install. Mounting the new sidebags to the HB racks required a little jiggling and pushing due to the tight tolerances (which is, frankly, a comfort to know they are "gutentight" in their fitting).
I traveled 1,360 miles through the twisties and even a little trail riding in Arkansas and the bags performed flawlessly.
Truth be told, I did pack a little heavy and the bags were packed to the gills, but I never realized it while riding! My bike even took a nap when I crested a steep embankment....and the bags didn't even scratch and kept the back end of the bike off the ground!
What would I improve upon in the design? The two latches have a dime-sized pressout that seems a key-lock mechanism would fit to lock the latches....just to provide that extra assurance that the latches wouldn't pop open. The existing latch performs well and does it's job perfectly though - so the double latch would be a minor improvement. Another option would be to add a TSA-like combination lock instead of a keyed locking mechanism on the bags.....that way you don't need to keep up with a key to access your bags - just to take them off the racks!
Overall, I would strongly recommend these bags for any Adventure bike - the price, quality, and warranty cannot be beat! An added bonus is the fact they don't dent!
Many folks' perspective on side-loading vs. top-loading is that they prefer top loading because things fall out....well, from personal experience, spend the extra $40 for case liners and you'll have a side/top-loading bag that packs very well and keeps everything inside when opened!
Again, I'd like to give Roger HUGE KUDOS for a great product and support!
