Now even I'm confused. Which tires will work best with these cases?

A little more weight saved ejecting the panier racks too I see. My adventure friend with a GSA is saying get the oem panniers for the gsa. Other threads say the soft luggage is better for offroad which I would tend to agree with (and the reason I bought my giant loop for the 690e). So I'm going to give the loop a chance and blow some money on real coilovers - these oem shocks really suck.

What's that tank bag by Touratech? Looks like it fits nicely. Easy to remove/replace?

Looks like the day tripper. I have the regular one and its much smaller than mine. I'm thinking about getting the day tripper and swapping them out when I don't need so much space.

I prefer full synth for my Jesse's - but only once I had them fully broken in.

I like the GSA adventure panniers. That is what I have on my Rallye. Looks great, well made... I think touratech makes them for BMW, and 1 key fits all. Hands down the best choice! They don't rattle one ioda while I'm bouncing down the trail. One time, I forgot to close latch on the top, wind blow it back...no damage. 60+ mph.

I think the best way to go is aluminum on the sides......bags on top when needed.

Good luck with your decision

Thread revival. Looking at the AdventureSpec Hemisphere 125 liter system for the GSA. Anyone care to comment on their experience? Looks like a huge capacity, waterproof and I like the compartmentalization with the 5 bag system. Also the option to have a pillion on board. Compared to my GL 50liter bag, this is luxurious.

I'll skip the snarky comments ( I see others have that covered) and jump to a reply - the best panniers and boxes I've used are the Jesse products.

I've owned both the Odyssey and the Safari, but I like the lines of the Safari better on the 12GS. Both are bulletproof construction. The quick click mounts are pretty awesome too.

I like dealing with small businesses, and the folks at Jesse have been terrific any time I have a question, concern or need anything I can talk to a person.

I've got the MicaTech panniers on my 2008 GSA. Love 'em! I'd originally thought I'd like the Jesse bags better, but I've gotten spoiled with being able to open the side door and get what I'm looking for without dumping the whole case to get to the bottom.

I've got the largest ones they ever built. Weighed them on a digital scale. 16 pounds each. Sturdy as hell. Use one for a camp stool when camping. I also have the large Micatech top case. The panniers are so big I really don't have enough gear to need the top case very often.

I prefer the older style but the new style looks like it would work fine.

I liked the Jesse mounting system because the cases could be moved forward if you're riding solo to improve handling(getting weight ahead of rear axle).
