GlobeScout Panniers for 2014 GSA

Well first an explanation of why i went to Globescouts.. Liked the fact the GSA was set up for BMW Bags (smart BMW) but after ridng a friends I just thought the 40 inch wide bags were just toooo wide. I know they are made by Touratech and was then just going to buy the Touratech narrow cases they didn't fit the BMW Racks..what the f**k... Plus I didn't like the fact that Touratech and other cases do not wrap around the muffler but have a narrower case on the right than the left. That looked weird to me . Well that left Jesse's and Globescouts. I had Jesse's on my 2005 GS and liked them..Why didn't I buy them again??? Just liked the look of the Globescouts and had an urge to try something different. They were both in the $1,100 +- range depending on acc. etc. so I went to ADVDEPOT www.advdepot.com and ordered a pair. By the way they are a very good company to order from , good communication, willing to work out any problems... and lot's of farkles for my GSAWC...
So Here are some pics on the 35 L Globescouts
Bottom line is they look neat , are quality made, come on and off easily, are 36 inches wide ( 4" less that the BMW Bags) go to advdepot site for more info..

Picture 1, 2 and 3 a easy and no nonsense rack system to hold the panniers..







Picture 4 Hey I saved 4 inches !!!



Rest of pics various views...

Nice setup. I went with Jesse because for the same width you get 95 litres of space. I don't think anyone builds them as rigid as Jesse. Micatech did but they're gone. Just have to deal with some hit or miss service but eventually they sort things out . LOL

So how much different between a 35L and 45L? And the width is it the same as the bar ends of the GS/A handle bars?

Well the 35L is approx. 35-5 inches and the Handlebars are approx. 39 by my measurement.. It isn't as if you will hit anything going straight it's when you are turning etc...

Hi Trailblazin,

The 35L set that you can fit on the GSA is our system for the standard GS-W, which uses a different set of racks. You can find that system here: http://advdepot.com/globescout-world...3-r1200gs.html

If you have any questions, please PM me.

Thanks,
-Paul
