Took off my BMW Vario cases and put on the Bumot 45L panniers and 7L toolkit.

I have to say this is one of the most professional looking and easy to install sets of panniers I have ever put on. I did have to move the turn signals back so they wouldn't interfere with the toolkit, but Bumot provides standoffs and there is plenty of wire available, so it's just a matter of removing the turn signals and relocating them.

The project was easy to do and the panniers are built extremely well! I give them two thumbs up!

Finished project with topcase:

One more view:

Up to now, I had to slide my 17" notebook w/case into the H&B topcase, but these panniers will allow the computer to fit into one. The overall with is 43 1/2-in, and while tighter than before, I can still get the GSA through the gate without taking off either of the new bags.

wbrisett screwed with this post 03-12-2013 at 08:20 AM Reason: Fixed overall width. Had 46 1/2, should have been 43 1/2
