Mine were delivered today and I managed to get it fitted on the bike before dinner.

Drilling the second pannier got a lot easier than the first. I made a template like the person who wrote the lengthy review, but I found that method was not "100% precise" and caused me a little rework to get all five holes lined up per puck.

Learned from that and just used my template for the center holes then used the big fender washer as my drilling template for the other four holes. Worked like a charm.

Panniers

Received my Globescout panniers yesterday. Excellent quality and they look great. I attached them onto my moose racing rack. Sorry for the washed out iPhone pics and Thanks Rob for the updates during shipment.

Some awesome looking pannier kits! I *love* the way the black looks on the Tiger 800.


I also wanted to post a quick note here as we've been asked about it a few times - the R1200GS Special kits do not work with a Touratech rack. They ONLY work with the BMW OEM rack for the Adventure panniers.

Oh, and we're now OPEN ON SATURDAYS! 10-3, Eastern time.

Thanks guys! Keep the pictures coming!

Will my laptop fit in the topcase?

I was wondering if anyone with the Globescout XTop 40L top case could measure the inside diagonal dimension? I use my bike mostly for commuting and I want to know if my laptop (inside its bag) will fit? While you are at it, the other inside dimensions would be handy (L, W, H).

So do we hav any more real world reviews on these? Lots of people ordered but only a few reported back. I would like to know if these met your standards or if you had any issues thus far with them. Any regrets?

Right now I am deciding between these or Jesse's. Leaning towards Jesse's due to capacity and being closer to the bike.

Steer clear of the Jesses unless you enjoy customer service that makes you want to pull your hair out.

I have a set for a 1200GS that will be for sale very soon without the hassle but ill never deal with those people again even if they gave bags away.

Not a whole lot of feedback yet, despite over 30 sets delivered. We haven't heard alot of feedback yet, which were taking as a good thing. The two items that we've heard back so far are:
  • Locks - It looks like we mixed up two sets of locks when sorting the panniers out. I think for the next set, we're going to ship panniers with locks uninstalled so everyones match without have to deinstall and reinstall at our shop to ensure everyone has a matching pair.
  • Black Marks - We've received feedback from two people regarding black marks inside of the natural sets. Natural sets aren't anodized (I believe I've stated this before in the thread) and are still mostly aluminum in the alloy that is used. You probably will have some black marks that you'll need to keep clean. If you have set of natural panniers, please reach out to us on the site about options.

I also want to note quickly that Bill - our Customer Service Manager - unfortunately and unexpectedly passed away on Monday. We're a pretty small shop, and he was the one manning the phones day in day out. I'm trying to sort through everything now, but if you have a phone conversation with him and you're waiting on him to do something, please use the contact link on the site so I can work with you to fix any issues or follow up on whatever.

He was my Dad, BTW. He retired about two years ago to help out with everything as we continually got bigger. It's a bit crazy around here right now, but things are starting to settle down as we have temporary help that has started. He loved talking to everyone, and frankly, so do I. I can't wait for the next Globescout shipment to arrive.
