Kathy's Journey Designs inner bags for BMW R1200GS Adventure, all years including the new LC model, sold in pairs.
For BMW R1150GS Adventure see reference B1GSAP/GBLA instead and for standard R1200GS VARIO cases see reference BVARPx/GBLX.
On new LC model introduced in 2014, where the BMW cases have been swapped left to right, there is a slight internal design difference inside the smaller Adventure LC case which means the shape of empty section in the case caused by the exhaust placement is no longer suitable for a small additional bag. This does not affect the usability of the KJD liner in any way.
Real world travelers love the GS Adventure for its ability carry so much and go so far. Kathy's Adventure Liners are the perfect companion for the trip. Each bag is tailored for a perfect fit inside the big aluminum cases. The liners are top opening with two-way zips that go fully around three sides.
They're not only easiest to pack, but contents are readily accessible even when the liners are still inside the luggage. For added convenience there are two outside zippered pockets on each bag: one full length pocket on top and another smaller one on the side for small stash items.
The Adventure liners have comfortable cradle type handles for balanced carrying, plus they're equipped with D-rings to attach an optional shoulder strap (not included).
Special note : The inner bag for the case found on the exhaust of the bike is intentionally not shaped to fill the small gap left above the exhaust, if it were the bag would look strange and would also fall over when placed on the ground, so not be very practical. The bag is symmetrical in shape to fill the usable width of the case from top to bottom.
Made of water repellent 1000 denier CORDURA® Brand Fabric, the toughest and most versatile material available for bags of this type.
Products made from this material are lightweight and supple (and machine washable), with a very high long term resistance which will not deteriorate easily compared to semi-rigid bags of other brands. Combining this excellent fabric with superior hand-made workmanship allows all KJD products to benefit from their renowned LIFETIME Guarantee.

THE DESIGN PRINCIPLE OF KJD PRODUCTS:
Kathy's Journey Designs case liners are designed to be correctly sized to allow for maximum usability and convenience, remaining aesthetically pleasing whilst avoiding the use of severely odd looking shapes purely for the sake of filling certain internal areas of the case, which would in fact be impractical from a design or usability perspective.
The liner dimensions are typically slightly smaller than those of the inside of the case, thus ensuring minimal interference between the KJD liner and the various inconsistencies of the case internal shape and features, such as the fixings for the restraining straps for the case cover and of course very importantly the closing mechanism. Even when crammed full, the KJD liners will remain easy to remove and reinsert into the bike case.
THE KJD LIFETIME GUARANTEE:
Kathy Anderson and her team construct each of these items at their shop nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia in the USA.
If the fabric, stitching, or zips ever fail in any way, they will repair or replace the item (at their discretion) for as long as you own the product. You simply won't find a better value than Kathy's Journey Designs.
These are great liner bags, well made (in the USA not China) and fit very well inside the panniers. They are not waterproof (the BMW ones are) and therefore you can't use them to secure to the top of the panniers as you can with the BMW bags. However, they are half the price and if you don't want to use them outside the panniers then they are perfect and I highly recommend them. In addition, it indicates on the website that the shoulder straps are an optional extra but shoulder straps were included with mine and were in the side pocket of each bag. I ordered black bags and I'm very pleased with this product and the very fast delivery from Chainspeed. Certainly was speedy! Many thanks.
