Tank Bags

Post by Vance777 »

I have a 2010 R1200RT that has a braket with 6 holes around the edges. It looks like it would allow a bag to click into it. Is there a bag that fits this? If not any suggestions for a tank bag. I used to put my drink in it with a straw. WHat do people use now for drink holders?

Thanks for your input.

I have a SW-Motech EVO tank bag that I purchased a few years ago for my 2016 R1200RT. It is 5 liters and expands to 9 liters. Not sure if the EVO model is still available, but their ION model is very similar to the EVO model. The ION model comes in 3 sizes, if needed. I carry a 3L CamelBak in the bottom of the tank bag amongst other things.

Is that Bracket part of the tank? I had a 05 RT that had what was called a "Ladder" on the tank. BMW had a tank bag that fastened to it. a Very specific R1200RT tank bag on that. Pretty slick really. Don't think they are available anymore and haven't seen a ladder on a RT in a long long time. You might be able to find a used one on eBay or Facebook!

The tank bag that fastens to your 2010 "ladder" or frame is excellent, and well worth it.

I have a BMW tank bag that was supposed to fit Leo, but I need to fabricate both front and rear brackets for the straps to hook to. I decided "not now".

With the Tupperware off, I mounted a drink holder. It was challenging to find an out-of-the-way place that would also be handy for quick sips at stops.
I bought the drink holder from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0CLG3ZPQQ?ps ... ct_details
