LS...........I read somewhere that the panniers for the 1200 Adv is made by Touratech in a joint venture between TT & BMW.

Yes, I have also heard that.
The panniers must have a TT logo somewhere on them because it is frequently discussed by overseas owners of the 12Adv.

From the report on AdvRider (if I read it correctly) it seems that the mounting points of the cases are weak and the whole luggage system rattles loose and fall off during rough riding.
The rider actually had to tie them down using a couple of straps (that were melted by the exhaust) to keep them from tumbling down the road.

The plastic corners also seems to be a problem. When the bike falls over the plastic bits simply break!

My TT Zega cases are not perfect but they seem to be a lot better than these ones :shock:
