If the R1200GS Adventure aluminum side cases are installed correctly, the only way I could think one could come off accidentally is if the latch is not locked as it is a simple over-center latch design. Once the latch is locked, unless the lock breaks there should be no way for the latch to open and the bag to slide forward 2" on the solid metal mounts and then fall off the bike.

There's no way I'd not lock the latches on my bags when installing and then trust the latch to not pop open as it doesn't take much effort to overcome the over-center design when unlocked.
