Cost of new bags for '08 GT?

I am looking at a lightly used 08GT locally, but the dealer it's at doesn't have hardbags for it (didn't get them when they took in the trade). Is there a going rate for used hardbags? I don't see any on ebay at the moment, and shudder to think what BMW asks for new ones :-)

e-Bay show this pair for $550

Trunk (new) is around $900 from Max BMW site. If you add the lid and bottom for one side case it's around $600 for one! Pretty typical of BMW plastic. Beemerboneyard.com sometimes has side cases and trunks too for a lot less, but they usually need a paint job.

Wonder why the dealer doesn't have the bags for your bike? Dropped maybe? Those lids always seem to take the hit, imho. Although the e-Bay seller (Duncans BMW) is a dealer and he has bags but no bike?

Thanks GMack. I saw those System Cases, but they're not as slick as the stock bags.

The bike's at another brand dealership, so it may be hard to get the full story, but it may be easier to get a deal, too. But I really need bags if I'm gonna switch back to a GT from a Harley :-)

Look around

Try looking for bags from a recent-model RT or LT. They're all the same bag (at least for '09) then have them painted to match. My top case cost $200 to paint match.

I'm pretty sure the LT bags are quite different from the GT.
