Bmr Products has this AWSOME flat bed luggage rack made specifically for the 12RT and boasts it is a campers dream.

Check it out

Looks like all their products are out of stock. Anyone know what's going on? That flat bed luggage rack looks interesting. It says it fits LC models?


No stock for over a year. I sent an email about a shelf for my GT last year and never got a response.

Call if you have questions.

Full disclosure:

I own RPW which bought H2W a few months ago.

If the H2W products are the same quality as when I bought my stuff in the early 2000s then ++++ for this gear. Have used my stuff for M/C trips and for some wilderness camping/canoe trips for over 20 years and they do keep your stuff dry. They are as good today as when I bought the stuff and will go for decades more.

Sorry if I missed a post on this. With two up what about adding an accessory rack to the top box. I've seen a few and am contemplating that for my box.

If the good old days were so damn good, why did we bother to invent modern times?

I have always believed in the two dry bag method. Similar to this combination. Two Sets of Rok Straps go under pillion seat to frame. http://www.twistedthrottle.com/drys...ular-packing-system-in-black-grey-orange
One bag (the bottom bag, usually heavier) holds everything for outdoors/outside the tent. Tent, ground cloth, extra shoes, cooking items, extra liner/light jacket, kermit chair etc. The top bag holds everything needed in the tent: bag, mattress, pillows, lights, fan.

Side cases hold the clothe, shave kit. The top case the tools, tire plugger, light food, extra water, rain gear.

I strap bags similar to this; https://www.google.com/search?q=pics+of+dry+bags+strapped+to+motorcycle+seat&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj7u6ryh5zYAhUELSYKHSeICikQ7AkIQg&biw=1530&bih=714#imgrc=xhCncXoIBjgcUM: and use them as back rest. Straps can be put under pillion seat when not needed.

Tank bag, for light snacks, first aid, odds and ends.

I unstrap at destination, keep inside bag out of dirt or on table or on seat of bike while I set up tent. The outdoor bag can go on ground and I unpack the tent first, get it set up, and then toss the clean indoor bag inside tent. Pack up is breeze. I pack inside bag first from warm tent get dressed and all that left is outside bag to pack. Takes about 15-20 minutes.
