I confess I've been tempted by the RKA products... The SW Motech mounting system just seems much cleaner though.
Actually, I find the 3-point adjustable straps to be ideal, and extremely fast to use while filling up and during stops. Mounted the top two straps to existing screws in the tupperware so they don't go around the steering column. Very clean.

Richard has a video on how to do it.

The best tank bag I used on any bike was the Touratech. Older part number 01-614-1019-0, 14 liter expandable to 22 liter bag. Newer part number I believe is 01-614-1020-0. It has not been available on the USA website for a while but still see it here: https://shop.touratech.be/new-style-tank-bag-waterproof-for-bmw-k1600gt.html, and may be found elsewhere on the other side of the pond. I bought mine from Europe and had it shipped across the pond.



The Touratech mounts without any straps in the front or rear. See image below for how it mounts. Not too tall, not too wide, not too far backward, easy on off, good size. I can't say enough good about that bag other than you may need to shop from Europe to get it. Asking their USA if they can get it may be an option too. They may simply not offer the bag anymore but it was so good I hate to not mention it as an email or few should help confirm or deny if it can still be had in the US or Europe.



My second choice was the BMW tank bag. Found here for general reference: https://www.shopbmwmotorcycles.com/p/BMW__K1600GT/Tank-Bag/70585342/77458520297.html, or here at a better price on ebay: https://www.ebay.com/p/1727088490.



Both the BMW and Touratech are made specifically for the shape of the K1600GT tank so they make very good use of the space available.


Other options noted here and other places are great options too. It is just these are the only two which are specific to the bike.
