Rack Bag Choice?

I am in search of a topcase rack bag for the BMW style rack, I was wondering which one most Klt riders chose?

I just sold my Chicane rackbag Glen. I loved it! Did you see it at the tech session?

Kathy's topcase rack bag is a great choice. It was designed specifically to fit on the rack, is expandable and waterproof (which I've tested on a few occasions and is true). You can get it through Bob's BMW website.

Thanks

I bought mine right from the owner of Chicane (Randy) at the national BMW MOA rally in Lima, OH. I've had "other" brands back there, and it was my favorite. Sorry I sold it too soon.

We have the Beemer Bags by DeSantis. He is an LT rider, and makes holsters, belts, etc, for LEOs. We are quite happy with all four (side, trunk and top) bags.

Thumbs up Kathy's

Another vote for Kathy's!!!

I like the adjustable height, waterproof, and the zippers will take a beating when packing in items......

Thanks for the response, I will check the price of the chicane and Kathys sounds like both will serve the purpose.
