    Aftermarket panniers and top box that use the BMW mounts?

    I'm curious if there are other panniers or top boxes that use the BMW mounts?  I like the mounting option, particularly the panniers, but not so much the bulbous boxes themselves.  Curious if there are options or do all options require their own mounting solution?

    There are none - that use the BMW mounts.

    Closest system to the BMW OEM is SHAD (who manufacture the BMW panniers).

    Get the Shad mount and panniers because:

    1) they are good value
    2) they are quality items
    3) they are always sellable if you change bike.

    Thanks for the suggestion Mareng1.  I already have the BMW top box and panniers, but was looking for something a bit smaller for around town or day trips.  The BMW ones are kinda huge, which is good for long trips, but if I'm taking the long way to work or a blast up the mountain it's nice to have space for snacks and water or a pair of shoes and shorts for a short hike.

    Get a rear rack or seat bag instead. Much better for short trips than hard luggage if you don’t need to carry much, won’t upset handling, little to no mounting hardware and can be transferred to any other bike.

    Hepco & Becker do this mount that goes on slots of the 2020 model

    Then you mount their semi-hard panniers to them
