Need RT-P luggage suggestions
I picked up a R1100RT-P a little bit ago and am just now getting around to working on it.
Fortunately for me (unfortunately?) i have the opportunity to ride it from Austin to San Jose next weekend so i need to get cracking on getting her road worthy. 1700 mile trip in 10 days on a bike i just bought. What could possibly go wrong?
Unfortunately when i bought it the saddlebags had been removed. All the crash bars are still there, just no side luggage. I have been keeping my eye on e-bay and craigslist in the hopes that a cheap set will pup up, but so far nada.
So i turn to you for guidance. Can you guys suggest a set of luggage that will fit within the bars and not cost me an arm and a leg? And hopefully fill the void more or less?
I came across the RKA bags, however they will not allow use of the trunk, which i would like to utilize so that style with the over straps is out.
Has anyone used the Firstgear Silverstone bags?
