Product Details

AltRider Luggage Rack BMW R1200GS / Adventure

Make BMW’s ultimate adventure machine the ultimate hauling machine with the AltRider Luggage System for the R1200GS Water Cooled. Comprised of the AltRider Luggage Rack and Pillion Rack, installation of the AltRider Luggage System is simple and straightforward with no complicated brackets or adapter plates required. The innovative pillion rack uses the keyed latch of the pillion seat to lock in place, while the luggage rack fastens using provided hardware and existing bolt holes.

If you own both the Pillion Rack and the Rear Rack, you have the option of an alternate configuration which allows simultaneous mounting of the Pillion Rack, factory upper plastic rack with grab handles, and Rear Rack in upper position (bolted to the factory rack). Note that hardware from the Rear Rack kit is necessary to use the Pillion Rack with factory plastic rack. 

Both the AltRider Luggage Rack and Pillion Rack are compatible with RotopaX Fuel Packs and RAM Mounts. The luggage rack is pre-drilled to mount Givi Top Cases (requires Givi Top Case Mounting Kit). The AltRider Luggage System is laser-cut from 3/16” (4.76 mm) aluminum and all edges are CNC-routered to remove sharp corners while maintaining a precision machined finish. All cutouts are specifically placed to ensure strength while providing ample tie down points.

Features:

  • 100% designed and manufactured in the USA
  • 3/16” (4.76 mm) laser-cut aluminum
  • Interfaces with RotopaX  and RAM mounts

Great product
I have had this rack installed for well over a year with many trips and lots of stuff strapped on using the Rok-Straps and never have a problem of shifting load. I ride one up but I like the option of being able to take off the front section to install the seat if needed. It lowered the center of gravity of my load by at least an inch or two over the factory seat and luggage rack that came with the bike. It also adds protection for the back tail light and turn signals in the case of a lay over on the side.

Brilliantly done AltRider.
I ordered the silver/aluminum color and I was expecting it to be polished. I was surprised to see it is a brushed aluminum, and it's awesome, machining it top notch. I ordered the 2 pc luggage system for my BMW 1200GS and installed 3 different configurations in an hour, including 2 beers. You won't be disappointed with this product.

It's great to see top quality made in USA product. Well done AltRider.

Great Flexibility, Great Looking.
The combination of the pillion and tail rack "system" allows you convert the pillion position into a functional carrying location AND the option to retain or replace the OEM tail rack/grab-rail unit when employing the equally flexible ALTRider tail plate.

I chose to replace the OEM tail rack/grab-rail unit. Removing that provides a much lower overall tail section so my right foot can now easily clear this rather tall motorcycle when mounting.

The system looks very integrated, intentional, functional and not at all cobbled-on. The many mounting points make it a snap to bind gear, soft tail packs and the like.

The extremely clear instructions made the changeover a mere15 minute job.

NOTE: If you opt to REPLACE the OEM tailpiece/grab-rail with the ALTRider tail plate, removing/restoring the OEM pillion saddle is just a matter of turning the key and swapping the pillion plate for the pillion saddle. However, if you opt to RETAIN the OEM tailpiece/grab-rail unit, restoring the pillion saddle will necessitate again removing the tailpiece/grab-rail unit because the arms of the grab-rails are inserted through penetrations in the pillion plate.

Great Rack - just not in lower position with Jesse luggage
I've had AltRider products before and all were great. The fit, finish, and installation instructions have all been great. I ordered this rack (pillion and rear) for my 2015 BMW R1200GS and it looked great. The pillion rack mounted nice and tight but I had to put a thin washer between the pin and the mount to get the locking mechanism to close. HOWEVER, when I started to mount the rear rack it became clear that it would not mount in the lower position with my Jesse panniers installed. The rear rack is too wide.

This luggage rack gives the appearance of an OEM part of my BMW R12000GSW. It is large enough to secure both a 40 litre and a 17 litre dry bag, together.

Bought a new bike, so I needed a new Altrider rack. Had the same rack on my 650. When I got a new 1200, bought the Altrider rack for it. Rack is set up for Givi and Rotopax. Additionally, rack has good tie down points. Good, solid rack. If only the price was a little lower, it would be perfect.
On the plus side, strong and US made.

This product provides flat surface
I installed on a 2013 R1200GS with ease. Although there are different options to install, I had to manipulate the spacers and additionally add a few metric washers to accommodate the surface I was after. I am please with the result. I now have a surface that is relatively flat for all my luggage needs. In this configuration with out the stock hand rails there is not a good hand location for handling the bike. I like the appearance it gives the bike.

Very well constructed. Large luggage area.
This is a very good luggage rack, particularly if you plan to use a solo seat. I have the Givi mounting system on it and use it with a 52L top case and Touatech panniers. There is room between the Givi case and the rider for a large duffel bag. I have the same rack and Givi hardware on a second motorbike. I recommend this item!

AltRider has excellent products that are well designed and provide great functionality. Altrider products typically have a more attractive design (for my taste) than the majority of other similar manufacturers.

Purchased the Sargent World Sport ADV Touring seat (lower) which is much lower than the OEM pillion. Since I never ride two up I thought this rack system would look better and provide me with additional carrying capacity.

Used same rear rack set-up on previous model 1200?GS. Very satisfied with Alt Rider product so went with same again.

Great addition to the rear rack of my 2014 BMW R1200GS. This rack makes tying down gear easier and much more secure. The rack is pre-drilled for Roto-pax gas can mounts which is also a great feature for long trips. This rack is well made and fits perfectly

I always ride one up and was looking for a better way to utilize luggage space when I go on trips. This rack seems to be the best system on the market. It also lowers the center of gravity of luggage.

Had the same rack on my 650GS. Good, solid rack. Set up for easy mounting with Rotopax and Givi. Also, good tie down points.

Permits elimination of pillion saddle, grab-rails and OEM tail platform creating an unobstructed tail area for easier foot clearance when mounting the motorcycle.
Michael D on Oct 21, 2014
I have prior experience with this item as well as the Givi mounting kit...on a second R1200GS that I own. I am very pleased with the workmanship on this rack as well as the ease of installation. Much superior to the stock BMW rack.
Roger F on Aug 18, 2014
Reviewed other luggage racks from diff manufacturers and found AltRider's to be the most versatile and form fitting to my R1200GSW. I really like the fact that the rear pillion seat can be removed and part of this rack system will replace it for utilization of storage and tie downs for those long solo rides. A great price combo from Revzilla made that decision easier as well!
