Pannier construction .....
« on: August 15, 2015, 09:12:45 AM »
So my panniers arrived the other day from the motorrad store in Germany (bike arrives next week).  Being a sportsbike to adventure bike convertee, never really used panniers before so ..... there is what looks like a mounting block that comes with each pannier - can anyone with a set already explain how to fit it to the pannier, maybe with a picture or 2?

Thanks

Once you get the bike and compare the blocks and mounting hardware already on the bike you'll find it pretty simple.  Did the setup in the parking lot of my dealer in about ten minutes with and electric driver for the screws.
I'm guessing you haven't had the locks done up with your keys as yet since the bike hasn't arrived?

OK thanks and no I haven't keyed the locks yet.  However that shouldn't take long, it looks pretty straightforward. Bike arrives next Friday and my first trip is a week later, so plenty of time to mount panniers and fit the lock barrels.  Looking forward to it.

I was very impressed with the finish and how well they were made.  Love the new shelving on the bottoms!  Hadn't had that before on any other the other panniers that I've had with BMW.

Agree, they appear to be pretty decent.  I just found a handy place to store them:

Those hangers are perfect for the panniers!

I think that it is shameful of BMW to produce red panniers for red bikes and SILVER for the white bikes
You tell me how fast I was going Officer !
