A set of center-mounted Zega panniers sold for a BMW F650GS single will be the same mounting setup as a Triumph Tiger 800.

Regarding the Zega Pro Special Set
for the R1200GS
Are there any safety, structural or other benefits of the cut-out case? Here is how I see it:
Aesthetically pleasing to the eye of the person riding behind you.
Extra 7L (approx.) of space inside.
Larger top space for attachments
Finding a used replacement could be difficult because of limited production.
Rack is not compatible with anything else (ie: Other manufacturers, or soft bags)
Doesn't function as a chair or table for the campsite.
Costs $500US more.
