    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.

    What about the option with the 840W alternator. You're going to need that once you add all the extra lights, heated grips, seat, jacket and other farkles.
    Also, are Tourances good for 180+ mph????

    Is this going to be an analog platform bike ?

    Speed ? With or without side cases ?

    Of course, you'll have to put in a cut-out switch for the ABS. Can't have that workin' during those off-pavement, high-speed runs...

    Soft removable bags or a tail and tank bag. All three? Hard luggage? Seems very, very odd.

    Which knobbies do you plan to run on it? Perhaps a high fender kit to aid with mud clearance too.

    But I think if I was putting luggage on an S 1000, I'd go with RKA stuff; they'll have something out by now, I'm sure.
