GSA Luggage Grid, Vario Top Box on Pillion Seat?

Hi Inmates

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?
