    Anyone make pannier racks for an rt? Anyone have pics of an rt with aluminum panniers? I'm thinking happy trails maybe but don't think the oem racks would hold up. Would love jesse bags also.

    I've seen folks make adapter brackets to fit the standard bmw mounts. I have alum bags on my /7 using reinforced wixom mounts.
