Its a Givi, which ive used on all my sportsbikes, box brand doesnt really matter, thou in the past ive mounted them on renntec racks but in the BMWs case, I bought a chinese pillion seat(complete with lock and key) for around 30 and drilled through the pillion seat and mounted the box base plate to that.

Someone else on the forum has done similar as well.

Its still as stable as it was up to maximum speed as well...

Thank you. I like the idea of a hard back box. Might look into these when the time/need comes.

Another shout for the Kriega system.
I tend to use an R3 bumbag for all my essentials ( in the unlikely event you come off the bike you have your phone to hand etc). And an R35 rucksack which is mega comfy. Toured all over europe with never a back ache in site. Also waterproof, and when i stop i like having all my kit with me in case some thieving so and so has the bike away.

Thx for the advice everyone. Will take a look at the options; certainly cheaper than the n+1 option of an older sports tourer..  :016:

Lovely pic that! Thanks for sharing - will have a look at the SW-Motech I think and a small tank bag.

Tail tidy does work with bmw saddle bags. The indicators are too far forward you won't have enough room so you need to change it back to OEM for touring. 30 min job once you get the hang of it.

Good tip - thanks! I haven't put one on yet but good to know as I am planning to.

Ventura system  with a Top box instead of soft bags.
Also flipped the Top box mounting plate around,so the box seats above the pillion seat instead of
hanging off the end of the bike.
