"07 K1200GT luggage solution ?

I need a luggage-rack case. I have a soft bag that attaches with bungee cords, but I don't
like it--not a custum fit, difficult to remove/reattach. I don't want a bulky BMW hard topcase.
BMW offers several cases I like, but their reps seem unsure if they'll fit my bike. I'd like one that can fit at least one full-face helmet, but that's not mandatory. I seldom put my panniers on.
first choice-BMW 22 liter softcases, #71602337144 (listed as fitting K1200GT, but rep
thinks it only fits previous-gen K12GT) also #71607666499 (listed as fitting R's and GS's)--
I like the designs of these (carrier fits on rack, bag drops in and locks to carrier). Anyone used either ? If they don't fit my '07 can they be modified to fit ? Does either hold at least one full-face helmet?
second choice- hard 22-liter topcase #46542324814-- does this case remove easily from rack, or is it designed to mount semi-permanently (which is ok--it has a removable inner bag option). Will at least one full-face helmet fit inside, even if using inner bag?
third choice--?? Any other options? Again, prefer a bag that's a similar size as above,
is designed to fit my bike, is easily removable (no bungee cords), and fits at least one
full-face helmet. I've searched many accessory websites with no luck.

Any input much appreciated
