'14 F800GS - Tail Rack with BMW Alu Pannier Frame

Just got my new F800GS. Since I have liked the BMW aluminum panniers on my 09 12GS, I got them for the new 800. What tail rack works with this set up. The 2 front bolt locations on the tail are utilized by the rack. Thanks.

I have the MOD rack on my '13 F800GS and it works great with the OEM aluminum boxes and mounts. Not sure about fitment on a '14 model, though.

Off the cuff any rack that uses those bolt locations could work with spacers at the rear location and sufficiently long bolt at the front.

Then I'll cast another vote for the MOD rack. Strong as hell with a ton of lash points. I liked it so much I put one on the wife's bike.
