My racks are the 'standard' Outback Mototek racks which were easy to mount and are super stable and great quality. I then bought the off-set kit from Mosko Moto of Backcountry pannier kit. On the exhaust side its a 25L and on the other side its a 35L. The quality is fantastic and I like how easily they mount and can be removed from the rack. I'd highly recommend them.

I had those Mosko Moto panniers and Outback Mototek racks on my last GS. They are of exceptional quality and hold their value extremely well on the used market. At some point, I need to see how well my R80 Reckless bags fit on the Super Tenere. My assumption is that it wont be worth the effort, but the R80's are bomber for offroad adventures.

Yep that looks solid! My challenge is that I have Jesse racks and Altrider tail racks that will make the fit less form-fitting. But I think my R80 will stay dedicated to my dual sport, and I will stick with hard Jesse panniers on the ST.

There's an Altrider tail rack installed in my pics: the R80 sits on the pillion seat, not the rack. Pannier racks though....that's gonna be an issue.

I eventually relegated the R80 to the WR250 and went with Metal Mule racks and Mosko BC 35's on the big pig.

Looks like you have a nice setup! May I ask you how much that set you back? BTW, is your bike a '23 model?

You could just use strong cable ties to fill in as support on the hoop for throwover bags on just about any rack.

Sorry for delayed response. Yes, my bike is a 2023 model. The racks were $235, which were one of the more economical racks but most importantly, they fit the Backcountry Panniers and they were super easy to install. The set of Backcountry panniers I got on a sale during Thanksgiving for $850. Normal pricing is $1150 I believe so I saved some nice cash.

I didn't want hard panniers, I know everyone has preferences but the hard aluminum panniers readily available for the ST1200 are pretty much ugly and heavy in my opinion so once I decided to go soft panniers that could be rack mounted, there were not a lot of great options and the Mosko Moto panniers are great quality so very happy with my choice. Are you also looking for soft luggage?

Aren't the bags on the wrong side? Just asking, not picking.

It sure looks like it, but I think its an illusion. It looks like the 25l is on the exhaust side, which would be correct.

Thanks for your response. I decided to go with the Givi racks and E22 monokey side cases. Parts are in my garage but I haven't installed them yet. I plan to do some off-roading but nothing too extreme. Nice to see someone else with a 2023 model. :)

One of my buds in BMW MC club of Maine is a professional photographer he took this picture of my MC with his new Z8 Nikon Pro in my garage with only a spot light on which you can see was digitally enhanced to shine in where most off road motor don’t !
