I recently purchased a set of SHAD SH36 saddlebags and have installed them on the SHAD “P3” mounting system designed for the 2015/16 RS/S (and apparently a long list of other motorcycles, too) on my 2016 R1200RS. The mounting system (naturally) requires the removal of the stock BMW mounting brackets that are supplied with the vehicle - no doubt in the hope that you will purchase the expensive BMW bags to hang on them. While the SHAD brackets are very strong, they are not as unobtrusive as the BMW ones and weigh more. But they do provide an excellent location to grip when placing the bike on or off the center stand. The only issue that I had when installing them was that the supplied instructions had an error. The right side lower attachment fits on the outside of the muffler bracket and not at the inside (nearest the wheel), as shown in the instructions. You will also need a 2” diameter steel washer to protect the rubber washer that is on the muffler bracket from pressure exerted by the saddlebag mount attachment fitting. Now on to the saddlebags: The saddlebags seem very well made and designed. Since they are a single-wall design, they are much lighter than the R1200R BMW bags that I used to own. I have a very accurate scale. The bags weigh 8.15 pounds (3.675 kg) each and are rated to carry a maximum of 22 pounds per bag. They have a large shelf attached to the inside half of the bags that makes it easy to use the clamshell design and will easily contain a full face helmet. The lock mechanism is very simple and seems sturdy. You receive an extra key and an extra lock with the bags. The mounting system seems is simple and secure. Nothing fancy, but it works. However the bags are kind of tough to install when new as the lower rubber mount is a tight fit on the mounting bar, as is the upper bag mount. It takes a lot of force to attach the bags to the brackets the first time you try and I found that I needed to spray silicon lube on all of the parts that contact the mounting bars. Once the bags are attached, they seem very secure and there is no movement or rattling while under way. They are relatively wide and appear to extend slightly past the width of the stock RS handlebars. I don't think I will be “splitting lanes” with the bags installed. But then that is what most riders have to think about when using most any hard luggage. When you purchase the SHAD saddlebags you get your choice of four colored inserts that attach to the top of the bags. I chose the “titanium” color and that is what is shown in the attached photographs. I believe they also can supply, black, white, carbon and dark gray color inserts. All in all, I am happy with the SHAD SH36 saddlebags and their “3P” mounting system. I feel that they are probably one of the best hard bag values currently available for the BMW R1200RS. The SHAD SH36 bags sell in the U.S. For $469, with the bag mounts specifically designed for the R/RS going for $125. Oddly, these are the least expensive mounts they sell, with other motorcycle model bag fitment kits going for more, such as the $165 kit for the BMW F800R model. Whatever the price, it is still less than the BMW option and is worth considering if you are in the market for hard plastic saddlebags. R1200RS.
