Side Racks 2015 800 FGS

Hello,

Just purchased a 2015 800 GS, not the Adventure, installed my crash bars from Wild@heart from advdepot.com, nice product, well recommended. Now planning to purchase the side rack, that I can carry soft bags, any suggestions, recommendation, pictures or comments are greatly appreciated. Newbee to the site.

Thanks guys!

I know you're asking about racks, not bags, but check out Moskomoto.com. Great soft bags, and some idea of what side racks work with (their) various systems. Their Reckless bag doesn't even need racks, but you would need a heat shield.

Not to hijack, but are there soft bags made specifically to fit the OEM GSA racks?

Hepco & Becker has some soft luggage options available for the F800GS, called their C-Bow carriers. It's a small, fully lockable system that holds their Street Soft Bags, either variety.

I've never seen one, but Moskomoto is making an adaptor specifically for the F8 racks to mount their Back Country panniers. That'll be my setup.

I would absolutely love some soft bags that would fit inside the GSA stock racks.
