    Just seen these on Motea website Inner bags for side cases 2x20L for BMW S 1000 XR

    Has anybody bought or using these? Do they fit well, i thought the OEM panniers are 30 litres. So just wondering if these are to small??
    Any comments please.

    A smaller bag can be advantageous sometimes. I have a 45 litre Givi topbox. I use a smaller Kappa (same company) bag which fits all of my overnight stuff, leaving space for spare gloves, tyre pump and some other items that can stay in the box overnight.

    No idea about your actual question about the size of the OE stuff  :034:

    You've certainly got a point there. To be fair only when going on tour with my dear wife to accomodate all her extra sh**e, sorry meant essential stuff  :745:
    Top box would do me for 3 weeks. Not to worry at least she is coming on tours now. So better not complain.
