So . . . .

Currently on a deployment with nothing to do in my free time but think of what mods I'm gonna do when I get home . . . this could get EXPENSIVE.

I have a 2018 RGS that I want to add a tour pak to. My dilemma is that I want the function (space) of a king tour pak, but can't stand the look of the king tour pak without the speakers. I don't want to spend the money on speakers because I use a bluetooth headset.

Anybody got any first hand experience with some of the aftermarket (different style) "king" tour paks? Any of them any good??

If all else fails, I may just go with a HD chopped.

I know Advanblack sells aftermarket tourpaks. I can't attest to the quality of the tourpaks but I just got air deflectors from them. The color match is perfect.

I have the king tour pak with the speaker pods but no speakers. I made snapped covers for the wife to use as storage cause we didn’t want speakers back there.

I have the advanblack Amber Whiskey king. It is a good quality. Bigger plate inside than hd. Good color match. I'm very happy with it. I really REALLY like the look of a chopped tour pak but if I can't get a full face in it I'd rather do without. So I bought the king which will hold two helmets. I left the rack off and the lights off. Which cleans it up a little.

I have a Advantblack chopped tour pac on my 2019 RGS and love it.
I was a little concerned as my bike is 'Candy Hot Rod Red Flake' and wondered if the paint match would be good, well to say I was impressed is a understatement... perfect in every way :)
It was a little costly because of the colour but still cheaper than HD, also I could order with black latches :)
Only extra I added was a liner and rack for it.
BTW It comes with passenger backrest, I can get 2 helmets in it comfortably

looks good. what kind of helmets? 1/2, 3/4, modular/full face? if mod/ff, how about a pic of the helmets in there? not that i don't believe you, but more that i'd like to see how much room they take up and whether or not there is any room left for anything else...

Very little room for much else after the helmets are in there.

Here's a couple of pics to show how much room, lid shouts easily which ever way helmets are placed, I admit I am surprised just how much room this chopped tour pac has as I previously had a King Tour pac on my Road Kiing and was expecting a big loss of space!

Not true as my pics show, I admit I was pleasantly surprised just how much room it had, but of course it depends how much stuff you are trying to carry WITH the helmets in there as well

That's a valuable piece of information for me. I've got a 2018 same color as yours. I've been hesitant on the Advanblack for fear of the paint match........

Several years ago I ordered the 4 1/2 “ stretched bags from AdvanBlack for my old 12’ RGC . The color was Big Blue Pearl . Color match was spot on ! Good friend of mine just ordered the lowers for his velocity sunglow red Streetglide , and he could not be happier ! Also, if there is an issue with their customer service is outstanding

I just got wind deflectors from Advan in Hard Candy Hot Rod Red Flake. Excellent match. I'm not sure if you can see it in the pictures.

I'm going to pull the trigger on the advanblack king tour pack in billiard blue. I can get the black latches which I prefer over chrome for the rgs. I was going to go with the chopped. But I like my ride with nothing on the back except when 2 up. So might as well get the largest storage for when I need it. That's chopped does look good though.

That looks really nice! I think I see one of these in my future.

Painey, Getting ready to pull the trigger on the Advan chopped tour pak. Did you get Advan's mounting rack and luggage rack or did you go with HD's?

As AdvanBlack @775 painted as seen, I changed out to 2 up Black for Blacked out look. After market Tail light and speaker pods, back rest came with it and metal inner. So here it is.
