I got a rack bag from RKA.

It's for the BMW K1200LT

The rear straps work with the holes in the back of the rack but I had to make a couple of extenders to reach the rear mounts on the rack.

This is what I 3d printed to use as an extension.

Just back from a 1200 mile ride and the bag was rock solid the whole way.

Nice looking bag!
Can anyone with this rack provide me with the surface dimensions?

This is the one I ordered. http://www.rka-luggage.com/A03 Seatbags/K1200LT Rackbag/k1200LTRACK.html

The bag is about 1-1/2 long on the sides and sticks over the edge of the rack. I had the cover and spare set of gloves in the bag and no sag notices.

Do you not have the rack on your bike? Is that why you are asking for dimensions?

Here are the dimensions of the rack.

If you want any other measurements let me know.

Thanks! I don't have the bike or rack yet, here's why :wink2: LINK

Was there a reason you ordered the bag for the BMW K1200LT and not RKA's 21 Liter Standard Rack Bag? LINK
Was it because the Standard bag (shown below) didn't have straps located from the vertical surface of the rear of the bag?

Correct,, the bag in your post has the buckles that would not work with the rack.
The K1200lt bag just fits better so I went with it.
Just have to make some kind of extension to reach the rear rack mounts to secure the bag.
I looked at just using velcro to make a loop but figured what the heck, I have a 3d printer so make my own.

Bag is the same size just mounts differently.

There are many bags that will fit on top of the Honda rack, but very few have straps that will work correctly.
The weirdly shaped OEM Honda rack has the attachment points at the right and left sides, making it a bit difficult to tie down a bag in a normal way.

I ordered a very nice Kuryakin Momentum Hitchhiker bag, but I just could not get the bottom straps to work for me, so I sent it back.
I settled on the very light weight Ultragard 4-603 bag, about $50 retail.
The straps were a good fit, and easy to attach to the rack, and it carries quite a bit of stuff for it's size.
And I add a few Rok Straps to secure the corners from drooping over the LED brake light.

Where did you find it for $49.99?
Was it also on Amazon at that lower price?

Thanks!
Yeah i got it from a 3rd party n Amazon for $49.99. It went right back up to $99.99 after that. Not sure if it was a pricing error or a temp discount, but im happy either way
