Bag liners and peg lowering kits

Will the R1200RT bag liners fit our new GTs? I'm using my bags more and more, and I'm looking for some way to keep everything in one place rather than having a bunch of things rattling around in there. I don't foresee using them as suitcases or anything like that, just as a way to keep stuff together. Are they worth it?

Also, I'm definitely in the market for a peg lowering kit. After 150 miles or so, the old legs begin to cramp up a bit. Aftermarket vendors, are you listening? Out of curiosity, how many others are looking for peg lowering kits for the new GT?

Definitely worth it.I just got mine for exactly the same reason, now nothing ratles around. They're the same as the RT bags

Cool Once you use a bag liner you can't go back.

They are the greatest when you are touring. I have some old bag liners from my r110rs that i used on my k1200rs. I am going to buy some new ones for this bike. The Bags Seem much bigger.

It is one of the accesories that you will not be sorry about.

Thumbs up

I bought bag liner's from Kathy's bag liner's. $99 for the pair, how much for BMW bag's. Nylon bags, good quality, two zippered pockets in each, perfect fit. Kathy is Bob from Bob's BMW's wife.

forget bmw... they are overpriced and always too small for the cases

Kathy has always made the best and most cost and space-efficient bags
i have had them for my RT in the past and curently have them for my LT and GS
there are none better for the money

when you stuff kathy's bags as much as you can... they PERFECTLY fit into the BMW system cases... EVERY TIME

Greg is right. Find Kathy's Bags at Bob's BMW. Or any number of lower cost alternatives than the BMW bags.

Definitely would like to know how the relationship to the shift and brake levers are affected. At least the quality looks good in the pictures

I also need the peg lowering kit: will wait until I hear back from 'dogg about it! Also want to know how this relates to the shifter and brake pedal: do you need the extenders that Verholen sells for those?
