RickRak - Strapless Luggage System

Hi all - Curious if anyone has experience with the RickRak luggage system? I think it looks awesome... I was intrigued by how quick the system clamps on and off the luggage rack.

I have been caught in the rain several times trying to strap down my HD bag and then having to fumble with getting the rain cover on. With the RickRak system, you can mount / remove your luggage while the rain cover stays in tact. It looks quick and so simple.

Link to their website:

Link to the combo I am considering:

Thoughts?
Thanks,
-Ryan

I have one for the H-D King two up luggage rack and love it. No worries ever about straps or anything else coming loose and not keeping your bag secure. Only advice is use the H-D brand King Rack for durability.

I bought one in Sturgis last year. I like it. It's a bit bulky, but it is very easy to put on and take off, very secure.

Bought it while I was in Panama City Beach Last year. Absolutely love the thing. I had them install it on my own bag and it works great!! I have used it over and over again without issue in all kinds of weather also. It is super easy to take off and put back on which was my reason for buying it. I get to the hotel and can remove this with ease and bring the whole thing to my room and unpack (including the 2-up luggage rack) and I have a clean bike to ride while I am in town. I know its a personal preference but its my preference and I am happy with the way it turned out.

Awesome. Thanks everyone for the feedback. Great points from all.

For those that have purchased... On the very back of my luggage rack, I have mounted the flag pole w/American flag. The flag pole is the one made/sold by ProPad.

Do you guys think this would interfere with the RickRak bag?

Thanks!

I have a Pro Pad flag mount, I mount it on the angled part of the luggage rack, no issues.

Great idea. When you stop for lunch your bag will be there when you get back!

Can this only be mounted on round luggage racks?
