I have the RKA Shiloh and like it. Carry my garage door opener, a bottle of water or two, handgun, wallet, and cell phone. Am kicking around putting a Spot GPS in the map compartment. Bought a power port to USB adapter to power two devices via usb. Easy to get to stuff without getting off the bike.

I bought the RKA Shiloh and loved everything about it and wanted it to work. Had to send it back the other day because it didn't seem good with my risers on my 16 GTL. I didn't fully set it up but placing it in position just seemed to contact the kill switch way to easy. I'm sure someone has already mentioned this on the forum but I thought I would give it a chance while purchasing other items.

If anyone has found a bag to go with the GTL as well as handlebar risers I would be interested in knowing which one. Would have to be pretty narrow.

I have have the Wolfman Enduro. I have risers. I don't have any trouble with the kill switch. I do occasionally hit the horn if I position it too far forward and turn fully to the left.

Can you tell me the model and the number for the parts that attach it to the K1600?

My Bag is the SW-Motech EVO daypack (BC.TRS.00.108.2002), mount is a type 306 (TRT0064030601B)



I'm pretty sure they're correct but please double check part numbers with your supplier, those are from my receipt.

SW-MOTECH

It is every bit worth the high price!

The material is much better than cheaper ones and it is long-lasting. I (Elli) have my bag since 4 years now. And it is good and waterproof like the first time ;-)

Thanks for all the positive remarks on the RKA tankbag.
Kathy and I manufacture, 3, 10, 13 liter bags that work fine on the GTL.
If you get the bag .... TAKE THE TIME to completely attach it ...your pants fit better when you tighten your belt right? :-)
If you have after market handlebars you can move the bag back.
After manufacturing these tankbags for the GTL since 2011 we STILL hear from riders that say it's impossible ;-)
Here is our "
" video.
NOTE : Rider is a CHIP and owner was not told what we were plaining on doing ;-)
NOTE : We do a LOT for the GTL, Bagger, and GA
Check out our photo gallerys "BMW" Section

Ask here or PM me if you have any questions

Love my RKA. After several 10s of 1000s of miles on the K11LT (do not recall exactly when we got it so no idea how many miles it was on the K11) and 105,000 miles on the K16, the main zipper started getting a little sticky and would not always zip together completely. Decided it ws time for a new one. Of course we replaced it with another RKA.

You did not have the bag back far enough. I have the Shiloh 13 liter bag as well as JRyan's bar-backs and have no interference issues...
