We wentto a local dealer last weekend to look at the F800's. Their ST was out on loan so we only got to look at the S. They told us that the side cases for the ST are the same as the K1200S. Does anyone have these? If so, what are your feelings towards them?
Since we do a fair amount of touring, we are considering trading in my 650 GS on the 800 ST. Not to be picky but I just don't like the luggage. They bags seem very small compared to my 650 GS and my hubby's RT. There is no trunk unless I look towards Givi or someone else. Furthermore, the whole idea of expanding them seems poorly thought out. Yes, they expand but leaving a soft expansion panel with nothing more than two plastic straps to protect it. To me, it looks as though the bags have just flopped open. The dealer touts them as the greatest invention in sport touring. I'm inclined to believe otherwise.
This is really holding me back. What's your opinion?
