    Has anyone in the US received their BMW luggage?

    Has anyone in the US received their luggage for the new GS? I ordered mine, along with the bike, about 6 weeks ago. I ordered the BMW Vario-bags, tank bags (large and small), and even the engine guards. I got the bike a week or so after ordering, but none of the accessories have come in yet. The dealer says that BMW still hasn't even released them yet, so they have no idea when anything will be in. Is everyone else in this situation?

    One of the guys on ADVRider in the SF bay area got his tank bag.

    ETA: But if it makes you feel any better, my local dealer here in MA has not seen a single tank bag yet. They're bummed because those could be such easy add-on sales but without them being in stock, people aren't buying them.

    I got a set of saddlebags when I received the bike, but BMW really had to jump through hoops to get it.

    That was two weeks ago. They should be available real soon, though.

    Two weeks ago, Morton's http://www.mortonsbmw.com had three sets of vario cases in stock.

    I bought one set.

    I have got my right bag, but the left one is still coming. Glad I'm not heading for the RA rally next week without the large bag.

    Yes you can. Doing it for the last week. Can't ride a GS without bags and haul much around. Makes it tough to go to the grocery store. Have to put the milk crate no the back with the Roc Straps to be able to haul the load home without both bags, especially when you only have the small bag. Should have ordered Jesse bags.

    Got my bike 5/23. I recieved the top case two weeks later. The mounting plate a little later. Side bags should be here end of the month. Touratech engine gaurds at the end of the month and top guard that mounts to the engine guard end of next month. BMW headlight protector who knows when.

    BMW accessories back ordered

    Picked up my GSW on 4-30-13. Ordered and paid for the BMW small tank bag at the same time. Still no word on the tank bag. 2 months back ordered, really? Glad I ordered the panniers, top box, engine guards, radiator guards, headlight protector and few other pieces from Touratech. Got all of the TT stuff within three weeks. What's up with BMW

    Congratulations Jerry.

    By that time frame I might see my tank bag on a month. I was hoping to have it in time for the Salem Rally. Kind of gave up on that notion.

    I'm heading out on my second long trip on the bike with effectively no luggage! Two months and still no bags? Very, very frustrating.
