Increase your carrying capacity and versatility with AltRider’s Pillion Rack for the water cooled BMW R 1200 GS. This clever rack mounts using the keyed latch of the pillion seat – no hardware, brackets or tools required. AltRider currently offers the only pillion rack on the market, due to the engineering challenges caused by the new seat moving forward and rearward.
Designed to carry more than just your bags, the adaptable AltRider Pillion Rack is designed to interface with RotopaX fuel packs and RAM mounts. The rack is manufactured from 3/16” (4.76 mm) laser-cut aluminum, and all cutouts are CNC-routered to produce a refined finish with no sharp edges to cut straps. The cutouts are strategically placed to provide a multitude of tie-down points while maintaining the strength of the rack. See more about how AltRider luggage racks are developed on the blog post Hooked: How We Developed Our Luggage Racks. Available in anodized silver or black finish.
If you own both the Pillion Rack and the Rear Rack, you have the option of an alternate configuration which allows simultaneous mounting of the Pillion Rack, factory upper plastic rack with grab handles, and Rear Rack in upper position (bolted to the factory rack). Note that hardware from the Rear Rack kit is necessary to use the Pillion Rack with factory plastic rack.
While each AltRider luggage options are available separately, get the most out of your adventure bike with AltRider’s Luggage System for the liquid cooled R 1200 GS. The pillion rack combines with the AltRider Rear Luggage Rack to create over 3 square feet (.29 square meters) of completely smooth luggage surface.
