That looks a neat solution to get some extra space for a small bag.

'Monokey' is a registered trademark owned by Givi, who also make Kappa bags and panniers and which are interchangable as long as they are 'Monokey' fittings - Givi also do monolock systems which are not interchangable with monokey systems.
Other manufacterers may make a 'Monokey' fitting pannier or boxes which should fit Givi racks (I had a Chinese box which fitted my Givi rack as good as Givi boxes did).
I would assume that the SW Motech rack would take Givi Monokey boxes if they state it is a Monokey fitting.
BUT I could be wrong!!

Salut Sabine et bienvenue sur le forum,
Vous avez choisi un vélo très performant et il devrait bien convenir à votre objectif.
Sachez que la suspension abaissée en usine semble limiter un peu votre garde au sol, alors n'en faites pas trop dans les conditions difficiles.
(Google translate - Hi Sabine and welcome to the forum,
You have picked up a very capable bike and it should suit your purpose nicely.
Be aware that factory lowered suspension does appear to limit your ground clearance a little so don't overdo it in the rough stuff.)
My seatlock broke today - the metal bar is not interlocking with the peg on the seat base so the seat is not securely locked.
I contacted BMW and have an appointment next week for them to look at it (and replace if needed under warranty).
I will update after I have been to see them.

I am interested in your "Ramblings", however I am too timid to interfere with the Canbus system in any way. I had a friend (proffessional motorcycle mechanic) wire in my lights etc for me.
I haven't even tried the app for the TFT screen as yet.

That is not my experience at all - Rain mode was great for a bad downpour I went through after a dryish spell, leaving the road very greasy. Rain mode calmed the engine down quite a bit and traction felt better (safer).
