I got the Chicane and thought it was very well done.

Tank Bag

I have had the BMW and the Chicane Tank bag.

Chicane is the better of the two.

I have the Chicane which is great and the RKA which I think is a terrible design for the LT.

If its size you want - get a ST1100 tank bag - massive, fits very well and you can still use the sterio

I just purchased a Marsee at a BMW rally in John Day Oregon. $135.00. It's not to big but it's got lots of room and is expandable (upward). I love it, I can easily see the instuments and it has extra pockets on the front & back. Also comes with a carrying handle and rain cover.

Cheers, Bill

Thumbs up

Thanks for all the input guys. I may go back to a Cortech Super Mini. That is what was stolen but I thought they had quit making but I was wrong. They cost $55 and do fit well. Rather small though. I may check the ST1100 bag cOOk1e mentioned. I guess they are at the Honda dealers. Thanks again.
