Kathy's Journey Designs expandable inner bags for bikes equipped with the BMW Expandable Sport Cases (K1300S, K1200S, K1200R, K1300R & also available on the F800S & F800ST), sold in pairs.
The liners for the BMW sport cases can be used in 2 size configurations, the full size which corresponds to the BMW cases being fully expanded, and the smaller size which corresponds to the BMW cases being fully compressed to their smallest size setting.
The smaller size is acheived by using the cleverly positionned extra large zipper to reduce the width of the center section of the liner, a direct comparison of the size and shape difference can be seen in the product photos.
Kathy's Journey Designs inner bags for side cases and top cases are designed to help you make the very most of the available space, adding the convenience of easy & fast removal of the contents when you arrive at your destination (or during your in-between stops of course).
Each liner has 2 separate zippers which open the liner around 3 sides, these are positionned such that you can access the contents easily from either side of the liner when in the full size configuration.
These 2 zippers are quite close together when the liner is in the smaller size configuration, so in practise you would probably only need to open one of these zippers to access all the contents when the liner is in this configuration.
Other features include a zipped mesh compartment divider inside each liner and an exterior zipped pocket for small items, as well as 2 carry handles.
Note that these liners do not have D-rings for attaching a shoulder strap, so please do not order straps to go with them.

Kathy's Journey Designs case liners are designed to be correctly sized to allow for maximum usability and convenience, remaining esthetically pleasing whilst avoiding the use of severely odd looking shapes purely for the sake of filling certain internal areas of the case, which would in fact be impractical from a design or usability perspective.
The liner dimensions are typically slightly smaller than those of the inside of the case, thus ensuring minimal interference between the KJD liner and the various inconsistencies of the case internal shape and features, such as the fixings for the restraining straps for the case cover and of course very importantly the closing mechanism. Even when crammed full, the KJD liners will remain easy to remove and reinsert into the bike case.
Kathy Anderson and her team construct each of these items at their shop nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia in the USA.
If the fabric, stitching, or zips ever fail in any way, they will repair or replace the item (at their discretion) for as long as you own the product. You simply won't find a better value than Kathy's Journey Designs. More details...
