This luggage mounting system is designed specifically for the R1200 R. It is especially perfect for the rider who does not always need to ride with hard luggage cases (saddlebags). Because of the "QuickLock" attachment system, it is possible to remove or install the bag mounts in just a few minutes, with minimal effort and very few tools. The advantage is clear: for your day to day, around town or shorter rides, remove the hard cases and the unused mounts too, so your bike retains its sleek appearance. Then, when a longer trip is in store, quickly attach the mounts to your bike and reattach the cases. Now you are ready to tour!
In a nut shell, here's how it works: Attachment brackets are permanently attached to several points on the bike and the hard case brackets in turn attach to those mounting points with high quality "Dzus" type, quarter turn fasteners. An 8mm allen wrench, a 5mm allen wrench and a 10mm wrench is all that's needed to remove or install the brackets in a matter of minutes. There mounts are compatible with all Hepco & Becker cases.
