They do...kinda. Some of the H&B 'Journey' top cases come with a relatively small adapter plate that bolts down on top of the OEM rack. Not exactly directly on the rack, but as close as they've gotten.

At today's exchange rate, the Vario top case (77 40 7 721 037) is $227 cheaper from KFM as compared to a well known US vendor.

I've worked with BMW for quite a long time and I know they make huge margins on officials accessories so I thought I might look at Hepco or Touratech.

Just wondered what people here thought of the official case vs the aftermarket ones?
Aftermarket cases would end up being less money, and a better quality. The Hepco & Becker dealer over there in the UK would be able to show you probably ~40 different Top Case varieties that H&B makes.
