Look what arrived today. I ordered these about 6-7 weeks ago and was told they’d arrive in 6-7 weeks. Can’t beat that. Time to see what they look like and if they survived their trip from Poland.

Lots of cardboard and bubble wrap including a double outer layer. No holes in the cardboard which is always a good sign. I think I’m going to fill our recycling bin this week.

Left side rack, exhaust side rack, cross bar, and mounting hardware are pictured. Mounting instructions were emailed to me. Looks pretty simple. Of course I won’t know for sure until BMW delivers the bike I ordered. Could be a couple more months. Hope not.

There were a couple more layers of cardboard between the racks and the cases. I moved the box and cardboard filler out of the way to make room to unwrap the panniers.

Strange… there are locks installed. I’d already removed the bag containing the locks I ordered. Stranger… there are no keys for the installed locks. Looks like I’ll have to swap the installed locks with the locks that came with keys. No big deal. Everything looks great.

Pictures of the muffler side case. That’s all for now. I’ll update this page with installation info once the bike arrives.
