    K1200LT Tank bag

    Greetings. I am looking for a tank bag for the LT. I have the BMW but if I can get something a bit larger it would be great. Anyone have luck with anything? I still would like to get into the compartment. I have the factory BMW GPS and use it all the time. I see that Marsee has a system that bolts onto the oddment lid...not interested in drilling holes.

    Thank you

    I use the BMW tank bag on mine, it is larger than my Marsees and is waterproof, the Marsee's need rain covers. I have since sold off one Marsee, and have another for sale (sold a 12L, have a an 11L).

    I use ..

    I use a cortech super mini. It seems the right size for me. Its bigger than the 1200lt one but still allows access to radio controls. The map pocket could be bigger but I use GPS more than maps so I use the pocket for abbreviated notes only.

    I use

    I use a bags connection enduro bag, available through twisted throttle. One strap loops around the stingray?? and two clips strap to the frame. No drilling, on and off in seconds, and will expand to a couple of inches higher by undoing a zipper so you can take home that rally tshirt you got when everything else is full already. I'm quite happy with it, but it would be better with a rain cover. It does have a water proof stuff sac to go inside, but that doesn't help the maps when it pours. Even so, when it pours rain, usually the maps will dry out.

    Tank bag

    After using a tank bag for 30+ years I have never been able to put up with a wimpy one, try this if you really need a full size bag. It will fit your LT by covering up the first 2" of your seat and you will be able to see your GPS and radio controls.

    Pictures on request

    The Rainier Tank Bag
    The Rainier Tank Bag is the result of combining the Ever-popular Explorer and Denali tank bags into one. We took the best of these bags to make the Rainier. By doing this wolfman has created the ultimate universal tank bag. Now one tank bag fits even more bikes than the Explorer or Denali. The mounting system allows the rider to adjust the fore-aft placement on the tank.

    The Rainier Tank Bag Features:
    ÔÇóYellow cord Main Opening Zippers
    ÔÇóHeavy Duty #10 YKK Main Zipper, and Ykk zippers used through out the bag.

    ÔÇóTough-Tek Non Slip-Non Scratch Bottom
    ÔÇóEnvelope Side and Rear Pockets for increased handle bar clearance

    ÔÇóLarge Expansion Wedge shaped Gusset
    ÔÇóZippered Interior mesh pocket
    ÔÇóKey Clip Outside Elastic Pen/Tire Pressure Guage Sleeve
    ÔÇóRemoveable Map Pocket W/ interior divider
    ÔÇóReflective Side Pocket trim and Handle Foam and Plastic Stiffened.
    Bag comes complete with Map Pocket and mounting harness (you must choose)

    Would you post pictures of the bag as mounted on your LT?
