Previous owner had bought a bagster cover and a big bagster tank bag. at least then you don't have to worry about scratches. Doubt I will be using it much as I normally just do day trips, and the Wunderlich Sport bag is all I need.

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

How did you get on with this setup Gibbo? I've just been warned off of it by the UK Importer as they reckon the seat catch isn't strong enough for the weight. Also the adapter plate can prevent access to the lock on the sport rack. Have you encountered either of these issues?

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:

How did you get on with the 50-55lt BMW softbag

I intend to buy a spare pillion seat(one of chinese copies off eBay complete with lock & key are around 65 IIRC), drill the holes thru it to mount the top box plate directly to it and ream a hole in the box mounting plate so you can access the key hole(one the actualy top box is removed of course..)

Dealers talking bollox...Plenty of people have done this and you never hear of a pillion seat coming loose or the lock failing with a pillion sitting on it and thats a lot more weight/drag!

Looks like there are Ventura mounting brackets on there as well as a top box fitted to the rear seat?

Other consideration I had was a renntec rack with the box fitted to that, had that set up on a few of my previous bikes, worked very well too and they do offer one for the S1000R

I use a Hepco Becker sports rack and an ortlieb duffel bag strapped on with roc straps. Carries all I need for any trip. The plate specs out to use a bmw rear seat lock from your old seat. I did not want to do that and buying one really added to the total cost. So I spend a couple hours making a duplicate mechanism out of aluminum that uses a coin to turn the pin that has a finger inside which catches the lock bar. With the foam weather stripping shipped with the plate there is enough spring in the system to make it all firm. No need for any clear paint protection film as nothing touches the bike paint.

I was looking at the Hepco and Becker sport rack but saw this.  It looks very similar (might be a little bigger) but is cheaper and comes already fitted with a lock and two keys

I will be trying the same setup this year..I used to use ventura on all my bikes, and indeed last time on the S1Kr, but with the new universal fixings it now sits too high for me, plus the bag height its very top heavy.

I thought this might keep the center of gravity lower
