My Motorcycle Pics Motorbike: '09 R1200GS Adventure
Default R1200GS Adv Panniers

I know this is a long shot but you never know. Looking for top box and panniers for my '09 GS Adv. I realize it's probably easier to find a set of hens' teeth but anyway...let me know if you have something!

I got mine from them.

Also check ebay, lots of dudes upgrading their boxes and selling the old ones. They're are a few alternatives in the market but they're normally very expensive indeed.

Thanks for the heads up guys. As even a set of used panniers is still going to cost 850 or thereabouts I’m getting a top box only for the time being.

Considered soft luggage? MoskoMoto seems to be the latest trend..

Buy a cheap secondhand Givi (Monokey/Monoplate) and buy a universal Givi plate to attack to the GS rack otherwise you're running into a ton of money for topbox and panniers.

There's a lot of debate in some of the adventure forums & FB pages about hard and soft panniers, most of the debate centers around the safety aspect ~ there are some nasty photos of injuries caused by hard cases in the event of an accident.

I have no experience but go have a read about them on advrider, people are replacing hard luggage all the time with them. Especially off roaders and rtw travelers.

Me, I use Touratech hard panniers on my GS but I'm interested to try these due to the feedback. If I had a smaller dual sport I'd probably give them a go.

Edit: These things survived a bear attack..

These look great and very flexible.
I would in me hole be paying 850 for a couple suitcases to be honest. I have hard panniers, but if I was looking for a set that didn't come with the bike, I'd be interested in the soft stuff. Fling them around the place, stuff the guts of them, no catches popping on a tip over or risk of damage. Make sense to me once I was happy with water proofing.
