Pillion Plate for R1200GS - '05-'12

Pillion Plate for R1200GS

Happy Trails Products

We love this pillion plate for extending the capabilities offered by this great bike. Suitable the R1200GS but not the GSA. The plate is perfect for securing a tent, duffel or even a top box (see more photos for the plate with a 29L top box). Coupled with our tubular tail rack you have a great system which vastly extends the luggage hauling capability of the excellent BMW R1200GS.


No installation is necessary. The plate comes fully assembled and ready to snap it on like the seat and use the key to remove it.

We have not made a small tail plate fro the R1200 GSA Only.

You could combine the HTP1-12-8 Pillion Rack and the the HTP1-12-6 

Dimensions: 13.03" W x 13.78" L

All Happy Trails products are crafted in Boise, Idaho

    The Pillion Plate replaces the seta, there should not be any issues with your top box.

  • In part of the description it says the pillion plate is for a R1200GS/GSA but in the main description it says "but not the GSA". Do you have a pillion plate that will work for a 2007 GS Adventure with the factory tail rack and aluminum paniers?Thanks.
    Question by: Jeff on 2016-03-14 22:01:00

    There is a detailed drawing in the pictures, if you measure it out against the GSA model you will see that it interfereres with the GSA rear Rack.

    We have not made a small tail plate fro the GSA Only.

    You could combine the HTP1-12-8 Pillion Rack and the the HTP1-12-6 http://www.happy-trail.com/r1200gs-4182.html
