I picked up a used set of BMW factory luggage for my '06 K12s and was disappointed to see how little they store. In retrospect I'd have gone either to Pirate's web site and chosen the soft luggage he sells for <$180 or gone with a weather proff duffle bag. BMW also offers a weather proof duffle bag to rest on the passenger seat and it will store as much if not more than the factory bags.
I read on another forum that Bass Pro Shops offers several weather proof duffle bags for under $100, some are under $50 and all will do the job you need. These bags are meant for storing your clothes or any type of gear in a boat with the confidence they'll remain dry. It seems that as soon as you look at luggage for motorcycle applications the price goes way up. Think outside the box and consider the aforementioned alternatives - you'll save lots of bucks!
(PS, want to buy some used BMW K12s luggage??)
