Press Release from BMW: BMW Motorrad USA has introduced a totally new concept in onboard luggage and personal storage for the growing number of adventure riders exploring roads less traveled. Intended primarily for use when riding BMW GS-model motorcycles off-road, the Atacama Adventure Luggage System provides more flexibility when piloting expert-level, back-country trails as well as continuing the expedition off the bike at remote camping locations. The luggage system, which utilizes the same case carrier system developed for the original BMW aluminum cases, gives riders an extra level of flexibility and security when navigating more challenging riding conditions and further enhances the capabilities of the GS. Currently, the Atacama Adventure Luggage System is only available through authorized BMW Motorrad USA dealers.
“We are thrilled to offer this completely new line of onboard luggage for GS riders,” commented Michael Hernandez, Manager, Parts and Accessories, for BMW Motorrad USA. “This original BMW accessory product was developed in the U.S. with the needs of global adventure motorcycle riders in mind – a riding community that is expanding along the trend of riding big adventure motorcycles in further and further remote locations off road.”
The Atacama Adventure Luggage System supports the following BMW GS Models:

- K72 (2008-Present F 650/700/800 GS with BMW aluminum case mounting installed)
- K75 (2014-Present F 800 GS Adventure)
