        According to the BMW Motorrad Bohling website, a Vario set of panniers for the R1250 GS costs 922.45 euros, or almost P54,000.

The case is compatible only with the genuine rack system of the manufacturer.

The group has yet to ride again since the pandemic started, but the individual members seem to bee riding solo based on their posts. Director Sid Maderazo, another member, recently tried the newly opened Skyway Stage 3, while it looks like Rosales has brought his bike to the beach.
