Bought the bike , now what

Just an inquiry about your personal preference on panniers since obviously it is subjective and at the moment the dealers here in the US will not sell you the standard Vario cases due to a recall.

I like the various and have owned the F 800 version on a previous GS. I have also owned the OEM aluminum boxes, also on a GS and I do not particularly want to go with the OEM boxes again but I am interested in other suggestions while I wait and see how long the recall will be on the vario cases

What say y'all..?

I am a great believer in Jesse Bags. They are much more durable than the BMW, Zega and Touratech style bags. I recently put them on my 2017 GSA and have them on four other bikes.
