RKA Motorcycle Luggage Topper

Motorcycle Luggage

Adventure touring pilots are, self-admittedly, a breed apart. Where many other motorcycle disciplines focus on minimalism and a plethora of carbon fiber bits, adventure riders view their steeds as Swiss Army knives on two wheels.

RKA Motorcycle Luggage understands this unique requirement, and has created a luggage system specifically designed to fit atop the OEM aluminum panniers and top box of the late- model BMW R 1200 GS.

Constructed from lightweight textile materials and outfitted with matching rain covers, the 3-piece Topper set is a convenient way to expand cargo capacity by 50 quarts.

Unzipping the top reveals netting and straps on the interior of the underside for organizing small items and each bag has a stowage area for the rain cover.

Although not designed for the extreme rigors of the Dakar, there is no shortage of ways to utilize the extra space on your next local motorcycle ride.
