luggage system for S1000R
« on: June 19, 2016, 02:02:29 PM »
Hello, what do you use for tail bag and/or sidemounted bags ?    I looked at the Cortech super 2.0 system and it seems nice.....not sur about rubbing and how stable it is though........    it would be to commute to work (with laptop) on the tail bag...and road trip for the whole system.......any thoughts/suggestions ?

I'm off to Europe in a few weeks so sorted some Kappa saddle bags (RA310 - These extend to 30l each), but they were a little unstable, so after a bit of fibbing I managed to get hold of just the brackets for the SW Blaze system - their bags are smaller so didn't want them for the trip. The brackets and bags fit perfectly and are very stable, all in for < 200. I've also got some 3M clear film to stop the straps rubbing paint off.

I used the BMW luggage bag. Worked great (easy to get on/off) and was very stable, but I did get a small section of the rubberised lining rubbed off. Nothing serious.

Expensive though

Sw-motech BLAZE H Panniers Set.






Pros:

Expandable. Easy to carry both with one hand (a handle with velcro). Reasonable easy to mount/unmount. Comes with water proof inner bags.

Cons:

Rubs the paint on the tail.

I use the Hepco & Becker C-Bow system, from site sponsor Moto Machines:

http://www.motomachines.com/Street-Soft-Bag-Set--21-to-23-liter-bags_p_224.html

Pros: bags don't touch the paint

Cons: brackets don't quick-release from bike like the SW-Motech system--but, they don't look too bad!

I use the Motech Blaze set for touring, protect the paint with tape (Duct Tape  :034:). Gave them a real good thrashing through the Alps and on the Autobahn (Nothing like feeling back with 1 hand at 130MPH to make sure your gear is still there!) Could not fault them.

I'm about to order a hepco and becker sportrack with a Journey TC40 hard case. Nothing touching paint and easy to remove!

I did consider SW Motech Blaze set, however, I decided to invest in two additional Kriega US 10 bags to complement my US 20. That combination should be enough for a week long Alps trip and I like the way they attach to one another, easy to mount and dismount (all bags attached) and it comes with a attachable shoulder strap. I tried a US 20 on top a US 30 but it just looked to tall. If I should need additional space in the future, such as for camping gear, I will be able to use my older Oxford RT 30L on top of Kriega bags. I'll post some pictures from my trip.

Can I ask which one?

I'm off to Germany next week and a mate has leant me this http://www.bmw-motorrad-store.co.uk/bmw-softbag-big-50-55-liter.html and I'm wondering if I need to protect the tail piece as I'm not sure they had the S1000R in mind when making this.  :084:
