    Hello

    Question about panniers? I have a2009 f800gs complete with Bmw oem panniers. The black expandable ones. Very happy with them. Im selling the f800gs and upgrading to a 2018 rallye gs1200. Are there brackets or mounts i can use to mount my paniers from my f800gs? Even if its just the top box. So I dont have to buy new ones... :) :clap

    Correct, they are not.. even my 2015 f800gsa panniers are not interchangeable with my 2017 r12 rallye .. mount points and locking mechanism just completely different...

    Also, be open to other brands of panniers as the BMW ones are way too expensive for what they offer... hardly waterproof either..
