Saddlemen Saddlebag Lid Organizer BMW R1200GS 2004-2014
First things first! Good product overall... It makes use of all the wasted space in the lid of my panniers which are about 2 inches deep. It seems that some thought was put into the pockets initially as a lot of my tools, medical supplies, spare fuses, and tire repair kit fit nicely. My tire pump fits like a glove in the pocket with the zipper! Almost as if someone took some measurements of a few electric air pumps on the market and built one of the pockets accordingly. Just don't load them down too heavy or your hinges will be under more stress than they were designed for while the lids are open. I have done multiple trips from the east cost to slightly west of the Mississippi and they were truly an asset. Not having to dig through my panniers to get at a tool, a spare battery for my gps or a cloth to clean the windscreen, was convenient.
Now for the only down side: The velcro that comes with the product for mounting them in the lid of my panniers was nowhere near strong enough. And the glue would peel off after a few hours of riding in the mid-day sun (June). So each time I would stop for fuel I will open my panniers to grab my tire gauge and would find the entire Lid organizer resting on my pannier inserts. The glue was a mess! The GOOD news is that the fix is too easy! I stopped in at Lowe's and got a few feet of extra wide industrial strength velcro and replaced the weak stuff that came with the product. Every since everything has been perfect...
This is not a reflection of Saddleman as I am sure they just wanted to keep the price down but in the end the standard velcro is the weak link an must be replaced by the end user. I would pay an extra 10 bucks if the product came with better Velcro. The product is top quality and I expect many years of flawless service from these Lid organizers.

lee d:yes it is. I have trouble with vecro sticking to inside of lids. I cleaned them with alcohol swabs and they did not hold up. not a very good system. I used 3m body molding glue to fasten velcro to lids.Oct 27, 2014
