At the end of the month I am driving to Boston from Albuquerque with an empty motorcycle carrier or trailer--if you want me to transport that R65 east, let me know.

The bags are BMW "Integral" bags.
First introduced on the K bikes in late 83, they were adapted in 85 to the monolever twins with the correct bag mounts.
BMW never made bag mounts for the twin-shock models to run these bags, but BOBS BMW had them custom fabricated back in the 90s and we sold the hell out of them until the fabricator dropped out of existence.
( I have a set that needs a minor repair) I also have a set for a monolever twin.
ANYWAY, when searching for these bags used, be very careful what you buy. There were 3 generations of these, and the first were not so great. They used the pot-metal latches like the touring cases. The later ones used the type of lock that can be key-matched to your bike.
The way to tell the difference is as follows:
1st generation had the old style locks and soft rubber handle.
2cnd generation had new style locks and rubber handle
3rd (best) generation had late style locks and a hard [plastic flip-up handle AND a new outer lid that Was slightly larger and smooth finish so was easy to paint match.

Cool, good to know. Nowonder I'd not seen them before on an R bike, haven't payed much attention to early K bike accessories.
