    Big Mak Tank Bag for 2002 R1150RT

    Anyone know WHERE to purchase a Big Mak Explorer XL Tank Bag for my RT?

    Cycle Gadgets does no longer carry them and I looked at the Big Mak website @ http://www.bigmakaccess.com/ and there is nothing posted there as to how to order, prices, etc.? Anyone know the cost of this bag?

    I can also get an original BMW Bag, part # 716 023 426 77 brand new on craigslist in my area for 200 bucks, but I am a bit torn in regards to all the straps one has to fight with everytime when it is time to gas up.

    Thanks, any help out there would be appreciated.

    I've been using the big mak for 5 years now. Went to there site. There is a phone number to call at the bottom of the site. Try giving it a call. I like the bag a lot, especially at fuel up time. Good luck...

    Big Mak Tank Bag for 2002 R1150RT

    Spoke to Mark at Big Mak today (very nice guy who seems to know what he is talking about) and ordered the Explorer Tank Bag, including Tank Bracket, Map Case and Cover, all for $259.99

    Mark is currently running a special, 20% off and FREE shipping, can't beat that.

    I hope I will be happy with my purchase once it arrives here.

    Thanks r11rs94

    I also use the Gas receipt holder which attaches to the bottom of the bag, the map holder, and the bottle holder. All work well in my opinion. Good luck with yours. Post a photo after you install it.

    Big Mak Tank Bag for 2002 R1150RT

    The Big Mak Explorer Tank Bag showed up today and I as well am pretty happy. Istallation was a breeze, no sweat at all.

    Have not used it as of yet, since it showed up after I returned from a 100 mile ride, so I will have to try it out next time.

    As requested, I am attaching some pics here after installation. I think it looks pretty good.

    Pic1, more to follow.
