    Luggage fitment on an S1000RR / GS Conversion

    I really like this new BMW but being a GS sort of guy it's gonna have to have Jesse bags.

    Any suggestions?

    you need the full left-side jesse box, as the pipe is on the right-hand side of the bike.

    also, consider mounting the boxes lower... as this will improve handling and still not grind the bags when pulling wheelies.

    where are you going to put the tank panniers?

    and fer pete's sake, don't forget mud flaps.

    I would recommend large, rollling Pelican cases for side mounts. That way the the case wheels can act as wheelie bars...

    i think putting luggage on this bike seems perfectly sensible. i was really considering getting a R12S for a while and mounting jesse bags, but 2 up needs have scrapped that idea for the time being. i think sport bikes look cool with hard bags.
