aftermarket saddlebags?

I keep looking at how far the factory saddlebags hang out, they are really out there, I can imagine some you have actually knocked them off inadvertently. Are there any aftermarket saddlebags maybe taller and thinner that might fit on the K1200, that would be of the same volume but of a slimmer profile? I read in one of the posts in the old forum that the helmet I have chosen wouldn't fit in the saddlebag anyway, the Schuberth C2, so if I can't fit it in the stock saddlebag anyway, I would be interested in some lower profile sidebags. I believe it was mentioned that the C2 might fit if it was placed in the open position, but never saw any feedback as to if that was true.

I do not know the part numbers, but BMW offers replacement saddlebag lids, both wider and thinner.

The wider (or jumbo) lids will allow you to put one helmet in the right side case. More than one helmet? Consider getting a top case for the rear. If it's just small items you want to carry and secure, then the city lids probably are the best idea.

I have a Arai Quantum F helmet, and it goes in the right side case just one way with the jumbo lit. Without the helmet, though, it'll carry a 12 bottle-case of Sierra Nevada. If you put the beer in a plastic bag as well, you can open the case and dump in some ice, too. I suppose if a soggy box isn't an issue, you could forego the plastic bag. Left side is also good for on 6 pack, but you need more ice on that side to keep the beer from getting warm.
