    So, I just bought an F 850 gs. I have a '15 R1200GS with brooks panniers. Both bikes have the exhaust on the right hand side.

    What racks would allow me to interchange the panniers between the bikes? The racks on the Brooks site don't look right. the picture and the link to the panniers show left hand exhaust like on the F800gs.

    Any1 have an idea what side luggage I can mount on OEM racks? As bmw f850gs adv already comes with side carriers installed on the bike.

    Bumot would be a popular choice from you since they're made in EU - https://www.advmotorrad.com/bumot-d...0gs-adventure-r1200gs-adventure-oem-bmw-racks (sorry for the USA based site you'll have to find one based in EU)

    Second would be soft luggage from Mosko Moto w/ a plate that marries up to the F850GSA.
    https://moskomoto.com/products/bmw-r1200gsa-water-cooled-adapter?_pos=1&_sid=ca3eb4bdd&_ss=r + Mosko BC35s would work.

    I gotta say, the new Defender EVO boxes look amazing. Huge year over year improvements coming out of Bumot.

    So, Brooks haven't responded to an e-mail enquiry so I'm thinking of other options. Does anyone have opinions on the Bumot's vs the Hepco and Becker boxes? I haven't seen either.
    Thanks,

    I went with the BMW black bags on my 2019 850. The look sweet, but are $$. I'm having trouble turning the key all the way to get it out on the exhaust side mount. I have an Akra pipe. Anyone else have that issue. The clamp closes all the way and nothing is touching, i just can turn the key all the way to get it out? Thanks

    My stock racks are in the flea market. Probably buried to page 8 by now that came on my GSA. $350 shipped to lower 48.

    One more to the list:
    http://pamir.pt/loja/loja-top-cases/topcase-pamir-m41/?v=35357b9c8fe4

    Pamir is a Portuguese brand from the "north" (north of Portugal is known for it's great industries where many very high end products are manufactured, such as Leica, kayaks for the Olympics, etc).
    These case are also much cheaper and 2mm aluminium vs 1.5 found in other brands.
