Can the top case racks be had in black?
We will be glad to take your money! We want to have a firm delivery date before doing so. As recently as three days ago, we were told to expect them to ship on 3/22. As soon as we get shipment trace-ability, we'll open up pre-ordering.

And will the racks be made in stainless steel?

If so, when will it be on the market do you think?
I'm not sure what you're referring to by 'BMW 1200 GS LC' - can you please clarify?

Any R1200GS or R1200GS Adventure from 05-12 (or 2013 R1200GSA) can use the OEM adventure pannier rack, which is stainless, and does have a notch for the exhaust. Just keep in mind that this is the pannier rack for the ADVENTURE line of panniers, not the VARIO line -- they are very, very different.

Why, thank ya! We were pretty thrilled with them when they arrived. They significantly exceeded our expectations.

Thanks! They do look somewhat similar - in reality there is only so much you can do with a metal case. That said, the dimensions, latch , lid surround, and of course the branding on side are all different. If you were to see them side-by-side you could clearly tell them apart. The Globescouts looks much more impressive!
