F800GS with BMW Alu Cases - Pics??

I'm looking for pictures of the F800GS with the OEM BMW aluminum cases - specifically from the rear and side angles. I'd like to see how close the cans sit to the frame and how high they sit wrt to the rear rack.

Spent a lot of time searching this forum but haven't found anything like I am looking for.

Thanks!

I've dropped this bike 15 times this summer all around North America when fully loaded and the cases have tiny dents. They work! I would buy again.

are the 1200GSA cases bigger/wider than the F800GS cases?

Same case. Inside the lid, there is a recommended max speed that is different for the 800 (lower) than the 1200, presumably for stability?

Mine have held up well through half a dozen slow-speed crashes, though the inside corner of one has moved in slightly. Still watertight though. I'd buy again, though for shorter trips on tougher stuff I'm considering getting soft bags too that attach to the same frame.
