Found a BMW pannier west of Denver, Colorado (owner found)

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:





If this is yours send me a PM or respond to this thread.

Scammers need not apply.

Thanks.
Jim

...but it doesn't belong in the Parallel Universe. Try the oilheads.

The inner part of the case can help narrow down the model (e.g., R1100/1150R or GS versus RS or RT).

Come to think of it, you should send a message to the BMWMOA, since a rally-goer for their national meet might have lost it.

As I said in the original post I don't know BMW nomenclature. It was suggested in another forum I post here.

I have contacted BMWMOA.

it could be mine. It had large amounts of cash, and/or gold bars in it. I mean Jewelry. Am I close?



Hope the owner gets the case back.
