    Not much to say, but as soon as Globescout finalizes these for us, we will certainly start taking Pre-Orders IMMEDIATELY. We have a lot of customers waiting for the word, and the demand is just as high in other parts of the world. Selim from Globescout and has ensured me that the new GS-A is top priority in the design department.

    Hang tight, we will have updates on the latest product posted as soon as we hear!

    Howdy, Paul - since the cat has been let out, i'd like to revisit the clear anodized option and see if you've heard anything about the availability of these?

    Cheers!

    The samples will be arriving with our order that will be here very very soon. Once we approve, we will quickly set up the part #'s with pricing for Pre-Order.

    ETA for Pittsburgh is 3/10, however I am just waiting on a confirmation from our broker as to when it will leave the warehouse. We're getting close, very close!

    Hello All,

    Today we spoke with Globescout about the design for the new R1200GS Adventure. We are very close to having everything finalized and we should see photos of the prototypes soon!

    I already had the chance to see the design for the topcase rack and it will look great with a nice, simple installation to the existing luggage rack on the bike. We are sorting out the final details for the special pannier sets to fit the OEM racks, and will post when we have more to share!

    Also, we have just received our sample to see the clear anodized finish first hand, and it looks very very cool! We will have these available to Pre-Order soon as well.

    That's all for now. Take care everyone!

    Great News Paul!. I am looking forward to using them on my end of month trip down south. I sure need a break from this winter. It's been trying to say the least. The cases will be a nice feature to have along.
    Thanks for the notice.

    I'm glad I ordered when I did! My new 12GS just got here so the timing couldn't be better. I'm sure it will be worth the wait!! :wings

    BTW, sorta off topic, but I love the way GS packages the shipment. Even that shows that they care about the product. When I used to import Holan, they would pack items with stuff like magazine pages they ripped apart. What a difference...

    You guys will love them. The quality is so much better than the BMW OEM bags.

    Just received my boxes I waited a long time but the wait was worth it. There excellent and packaged very well. I received them today with UPS and UPS sucks! The packaging was damaged like anything I get from UPS. But the boxes were in great shape. That's the only thing I think you guys can do better use Federal Express. But that might just be a local issue. I will order the lid net and some extra corners.
    Thank you
    I'm not affiliated with FedEx

    Arrived today in great shape. Packed very well. I got the 45ltr variant.
    Install took slightly more than an hour. Remove muffler. Makes install easier. Note: 4 supplied brackets are asymmetric. Pay attention when installing.

    Excellent build quality is all I can say. Yes, these are better than the BMW OE cases. Very robust construction and material selection. Black finish is nice. Worth the wait. Craftsmanship is very evident.

    Just got mine today. Packaging is excellent and in great condition. I do a lot I shipping and have had equally good and bad experiences with UPS and FedEx. Can't wait to get these installed. The material workmanship looks great!!
