Soft tail luggage

Does anyone has any recommendations for soft tail luggage for the K12S?

I love my Joe Rocket Tail bag.

Bought it for my EX500 in '01. Used it on my VFR, GT and now the KR. Very durable. Hooks on to the pannier mounting racks. Has a strap and carry handle. Only 60 bucks. Far less than the BMW tail bag and looks better.

We have the same bags for our K12s'. Excellent value for the price!! Rain cover works great if it down pores, but in light rain the bag stays dry.

I use the Chicane Tail bag..not very big at 13 litres but great for day rides and looks amazing on the bike. It also comes with a rain cover.

Tail Bag

I just purchased the BMW tail bag and have been very happy with the fit and function. Once you pull out the strap loops that are already attached to the underside of the seat, it takes all of 15 seconds to put on or take off. It has in internal rain cover and several exterior zip pockets. It also matches the saddle bags if that's important to you.
The part number is # 71 60 7 694 117, $167.00

I tried to find a link to the bag at a number of BMW sites but no luck. I took a photo of mine if that helps.

Thanks. I like the Chicane, but probably need a bit more space. Anyone heard of :

I already bought some soft luggage, but afterwards I saw a couple bikes fitted with an Oxford Tail Bag. It has a cover with a zipper that slides over the pilion portion of the seat and the bag just zips to it. Expandable and it stays put.
Really nice IMO...
