Decided on this one

I chose the BMW bag for the GS and picked up this one from BMW in San Francisco at $100 off of retail. It appeared a bit dusty on arrival, and I'm assuming it was a demo in their shop. All parts...

BMW panniers

The Vario's are fine for road use and pavement touring. However, the exhaust side pannier is a joke though. Even when expanded, it might hold a 6 pack and a pair of flip-flops. I wouldn't trust...

Maybe. Conti looks to be finding a compromise between the TKC-80 and the Conti TA's. Imitation is a form of flattery. I agree it looks similar to the Hidenau K60 rear (not so much on the front). ...
