The AltRider pillion rack for the BMW R 1200 GS just might be the most versatile on the market, featuring five different mounting configurations, several attachment options for RotopaX fuel packs, interfaces for the Givi Monokey top case system (requires Givi top case mounting kit) and the GSessories Tail Gunner case, and four separate mount points for RAM ball mounts. This allows for easy mounting of an action camera in the perfect location without the need for additional complicated clamps. You can decide to ride with a lot of luggage or with a pillion, and the luggage rack will accommodate your needs at a moment’s notice.
Although available separately, the two racks in the AltRider Luggage Rack System for the BMW R 1200 GS work best together. The well thought out pillion rack is CNC machined from 3/16 inch (4.75 mm) thick anodized aluminum. Varied cutouts make it easy to strap, tie down, or hook bags or other items securely. The finishes are superb on this rack with all chamfered cutouts which results in smooth edges all around. Installation of the pillion rack takes no time at all since it attaches and releases the same way the pillion seat does – with the key – so extra tools are unnecessary.
There is no rack system on the market that provides all these configurations within the same product. Other manufacturers have simply made multiple parts, so the rider has to decide at the time of purchase how, what type, and how much luggage will be carried. With the AltRider solution, the rider can now configure the luggage system to the current need.
GIVI Monokey top cases can be fitted with the GIVI Mounting Kit -- no need for the additional cost of an adapter plate. NOT COMPATIBLE WITH GIVI Trekker 52L Top Case.
This product can be fitted to the R 1200 GS Adventure only if the OEM stainless steel luggage rack is removed.
