    rack over seat 2016 R1200RT

    Can anyone suggest search terms or products for a rack to tie stuff down that rides over or replaces the passenger seat on my R1200RT? I'm sure there are "related threads" and discussions here but I don't even know what terms to search...seat rack? rack on passenger seat (pics of hot pillions naked?)I am often frustrated by the lack of tiedown places on that bike for my rubber duffel and Kreiga pack. I've managed but it always seems jury-rigged half assed looking.

    This maybe a simple solution, but how about https://www.sdmoto-parts.com/en/r120...SABEgJ1N_D_BwE I am not sure of the exact width, but maybe an idea worth looking into. A few mounting points along the grab rail. Maybe some brackets that can be clamped in place on the rail.

    How about something similiar : https://www.jpcycles.com/product/212...E&gclsrc=aw.ds

    Just some thoughts. Hope that gets your mind a wandering, or is it wondering?

    Cheers,

    yes- you got some wheels a churning...or is it turning?

    Funny I have that second one on my harley- the good one is made by motherwell (?) twice the price- of course. The Wonderlich gives me some ideas.

    It looks like that Sargent seat product is a great option, if it fits the RT passenger seat. Nice find though.

    I know there was a company that made these that went out of business and you could find one used every now and then online.

    This looks like one similar and may still be available now by special order:

    Yeah- I saw that too except:
    Site doesn't mention RT...:

    BMW R Bikes
    R 1200 R (15+) / R 1200 RS (14+)
    Sargent Rear Rack R12R/RS
    R 1200 R / R 1200 RS

    Kinda pricey too- but that we expect! ($305)

    BMR Products made an excellent flatbed luggage rack for the '05 - '13 RTs. I had one on my '12 and it was one of the best farkles I had (the Mrs. doesn't ride with me, so no worries about sacrificing the pillion seat). I see now that the BMR website domain is up for sale, so I'm assuming he's not going to manufacture a rack for the WC RTs. Pitty.

    I also have a '16 RT and have looked for racks with no luck. But I have found that a 36" waterproof duffel rests on the pillion seat with a couple of Rok-straps (https://rokstraps.com/) just fine and dandy

    Ditto. Also can give you some back support. You can cram a lot of stuff in one, too.
