I finally received my Globescouts today. I'll throw them on the scale along with the mounts to get a weight.


Purely a guess, but they don't seem any heavier than my Jesses I've had on a previous GS.

With those new-found ponies in your new GS, you won't notice the weight.

I just weighed my Globescout 35l special set. With mounting hardware they are 35 lbs for everything. Just the bags weigh 27 lbs for the pair.

I'm going to the bike show at the weekend, but apparently, there's a UK company that has produced top loading metal panniers that will go on the bike using the factory fittings, and not the scaffolding. I'll be sure to get some pictures and info when I go.

Almost exactly the same as the Jesse set.

Me three! They are saying under 600 for the pair including locks, and powdercoated in ANY colour. Seems to good to be true, but we'll see. If they are any good, I'll ask my dealer to source them, as they are including panniers with my new bike.

Aluminium panniers for bmw r1200gs lc.

From their website : http://www.stahlkoffer.com/2013/11/1...mw-r1200gs-lc/

ALUMINIUM PANNIERS FOR BMW R1200GS LC.

November 16, 2013 - Uncategorized - no comments

Just to say we have now completed our prototyping of aluminium panniers for the new BMW R1200GS LC. These panniers are made of 2mm aluminium (powder-coated inside and out) and are top-opening. This has the added advantage that items can be easily removed from the pannier without everything falling out (which seems to be the common complaint with side-opening panniers). We have used the existing fittings on the bike so no additional frames are necessary and said panniers can be easily removed.
They will be on display at the forthcoming Bike Show at the NEC, Birmingham starting Saturday 23rd November. We will be exhibiting in Hall 4 Stand No E12 so if you are at the Show come and stop by. If you are not able to make the Exhibition there will be a full feature on them shortly on the Stahlkoffer website.

Don't forget the pictures. Just say you are a representative of the ADV forum. Plenty potential clients here for them.

I do hope they do something on their styling, cause at the moment they are actually just alu boxes. And those attachment points on top are a bit huge.

I'm a big fan of the Jesse's. Used them for a decade on my 2003 R1150GS, and have just purchased a new set for my '14 WC. Good quality, good customer service, and I think they look nice.
