All BS aside, I have a 2010 R1200GSA on order, and I'm in a quandry between the over-priced BMW metal panniers vs. the Al Jessee Safari Panniers. The Safari's are larger, and appear to be better built (welded seams vs. rivets). And, there's a significant difference in the price. Looks like the full set of Safari's including the 45 ltr top case are cheaper than just the BMW panniers by themselves, then I have to still buy the top case. Any thoughts? The only drawback that I see to the Safari's is having to lower the exhaust pipe. Anyone have any EXPERIENCE with the Safari vs the BMW panniers.
