GSA Luggage Grid, Vario Top Box on Pillion Seat?
I'm not too sure whether it has been done before but I would like to share my little project
Bike : R1200 GS
Luggage Grid : GSA
Top Box : BMW Vario
Plate from Touratech. Part No# 01-044-0425-0. Luggage rack instead of Pillion seat
What I want (mission!) ? I want an easy way to plug and ride between my pillion seat, top box!
Luggage rack instead of Pillion seat
I then measure and drill the holes as per Vario base plate
Tight it up! Voila!
Close but not touching! Phew!
Now I should get the back pad for the Top Box!
I also add a bungee net into the Vario Top Lid
Hope this help somebody here :)
MY wish came true.....

I just came across your writeup and you did a great job.
I'm looking at doing something similar on my 12GS. I was thinking moving the top case forward and then putting a duffle or dry back on top of it. Behind the top case (similar to the tail on your GSA) I would mount a tail plate from AltRider for two RotoPaxs.
How has your setup worked? Do you think its strong enough to put a tent on top of the case? From your pics it looks like the tail is still usable, is that correct?
