Thread: 2007K1200gt question on tank bags

    2007K1200gt question on tank bags

    I'm heading on a long trip with a few other members this July which will require me to have more storage available with easy access. I don't like tank bags, but I guess it's going to be necessary for the often quick access of certain items.

    Looking for recommendations from members on best bags, mounts etc based on others experiences. I don't want to guess what I need and will take the advice of members who know first hand what's going to be my best options.

    Thanks in advance.

    ETA, this means I won't be making Des Moines but heading in the opposite direction at nearly the same time I'd have left for the midwest.

    If you like to use paper maps the BMW K1200/1300GT bag has a nice size map window.

    Thanks Lee, best place to secure on online for the least amount of money?

    I use one from SW-Mototech (Bag Connections). It uses the quick disconnect and also has the attachment for holding maps on top of the bag.

    Sorry, I don't know of a place that discounts the bag.

    I also use a Bag Connection tank bag on my R1200RS and use the optional map holder.
    I'm guessing your tank bag model is the City bag, is that correct?

    I have one for a BMW K12/13GT that I'm not using anymore. The part number is for a K1200GT, but the mounts that were sent are a little strange.

    These tank bags are, in my opinion, the best one can get. High quality, a variety of sizes and the mounting mechanism is flawless. No straps, no muss, no fuss.

    That's different than the one I've seen.

    Here's the bag I was thinking of.

    Is there a model number for that specific bag for my specific bike. I hate to order the wrong bag and mess with trying to get something to work that wasn't specific to my bike. I checked their site, doesn't list a K1200 but a 1300 09-12 I think. Is that the evo bag? Think it will work on my tank?

    Lee, thanks

    Lee, hate to be a PITA, can you give me a link to where I can order that exact bag? I like the tie down better than the ring mounts myself unless someone has a reason why the tank ring is a better set up etc.

    This is the bag - Evo.
    A buddy of mine has the Evo GS bag on his K1200GT and it fits pretty good.

    I just found that bag and it's out of stock, that seems like the one I'd want, any suggestions on where else I might find it in stock?

    Thanks
