Protection bars for stock BMW panniers

"I bought a new BMW R1200GS in Anchorage, and didn't want (nor could really afford) a set of Jesse's. I heard horror stories about breaking the standard BMW panniers later, and as I am on the road to Argentina figured I should stop somewhere and relieve myself of the worry.
