    That protector is for the air cooled R1200R pannier.
    Similarly NedPlex in Holland do a 'slim' lid for various BMW panniers which is very neat and not available for R1200R and RS panniers yet

    Those panniers look quite gorgeous Terry.

    I was filtering around Edinburgh on the way down from the Highlands the other week. I'd not gained an awareness of how wide the RS panniers are. I bounced my LH one off an HGV tyre :eek:. Although lightly scuffed it doesn't really show and it still matches my granite bike.

    Woolf used a black wrap on his bike.

    I saw this exact bike at the DAS RALLY recently and the detailing and pin striping was well done indeed.

    I had these on my BMW RT (2008) and they were good to handle drops but they were expensive 70bucks if I recall each , and they only fit the RT pannier.
    I've thought about ordering some as some BMW dealer sites show them in their parts fiche, but I don't want to gable 150 bucks for a set of them that might not match the contours of the RS panniers

    I've kicked the crap out of my panniers and stood them down on a concrete floor so I'm really glad they are standard grey "scratch them all over" standard colour

    Slim lids for the RS panniers might turn out to be difficult to realise given the bottom plate that extends outwards the edge of the inner shell. A handy feature, the bottom plate, I had stuff falling out my RT panniers that would not have dropped had these panniers been fitted with a bottom plate..

    Good point, I had not studied the design that closely - may not happen then!

    Never thought of that.
    I really like the bottom plate feature.

    My panniers have done 1,000+ miles this week in all weather and though I love the pretty colours and stripes above, I think I'll skip a fancy paint job because it wouldn't survive 5 minutes judging by kicks, scuffs, flies and road crap that is all over my panniers in the world outside a showroom.

    At 20EU for a tank of fuel, that's a lot of miles swapped for paint & stickers.

    Though I will confess that when I went to ride without needing my panniers yesterday, I molly coddled them in the hotel garage by finding a black plastic bag to sit the panniers on a concrete floor to minimise the scratching to the undersides :)
    But all the outside surfaces were filthy with grime & bugs.

    What do you think about this?
    It's an idea provided by a wrapping company i know.
    The white and blue part is reflective.

    Had mine matched color code black and I added the red stripes. Not concerned with signs of use. I take very good care of my 'stuff' but USE things as intended under the guise of you can't take it with you in the end so enjoy it today.
