Found a BMW pannier west of Denver, Colorado

FOUND: BMW right side pannier
About 3 PM Friday July 20, 2012 while driving on I-70 near Georgetown, Colorado, I found a BMW pannier.

The case was locked, but I was able to pick the lock. There are some very unique items in the case so I will be able to tell if you are trying to pull a fast one.

Looks like it might fit a late 90's early 2000's RS or GT.

I don't know the BMW nomenclature, so don't rag on me for wrong or incorrect models. I'm just trying to help somebody out.

Here is a pic to help identify which models it might fit:





Respond to this thread or PM me if this is yours.

Scammers need not apply.

Thanks.
Jim

Yet another example of WHY to put your NAME/CONTACT information on a discrete label on the OUTSIDE of the case.

I lost a Vario.
Yes...it was locked...but it had my NAME/CONTACT information on the INSIDE. Obviously, difficult/impossible to get into. Never got back.

Thanks.

Can't see the pic - I see a placeholder and then when I go to the URL behind the placeholder I see the same message posted by Laurel

Just a quick thought. Since the panniers (at least mine) opens with the ignition key of the bike. Wouldn't it be possible to check the locking cylinder for the key number and check with a BMW rep. if they can compare it in any database or something. At least Horatio Kane would pull it off...

Toby_Wan screwed with this post 07-21-2012 at 03:55 PM Reason: thought of something more.

Toby_Wan, there are no marks on the key cylinder. Maybe it has been changed. I was able to pick the lock very easily. The panel on the inside covering the back of the lock are riveted on.

I think I will wait for a few days (to see if the owner contacts me) before I tear the case apart.

Thanks for the suggestion.
Jim

That bag will fit the 1100/ 1150 RT, RS, GS, 1100S S, and maybe the 1200KRS. There are no serial #'s on BMW tumblers so tracking that way is impossible. Someone mentioned that maybe it's off a bike that was headed to Sedalia.......probably spot on. The ad on the MOA site will probably be your best bet. Or, you could just hang out on interstate 70 waiting to see if they happen to pass by on the return trip. Should be easy to spot.
