Check out what the magazines have been saying about us for over 30 years now.

Get to know us.
We ARE motorcyclists.

RKA has been around since 1985 making the best luggage we possibly can,
with the best functionality, best possible materials and the most pleasing to the eye.

Most of all we have continued to design and manufacture our products right here in Northern California.


Our help not only sews but they are CRAFTPEOPLE and ARTISTS.
That's why we think we are the top of the line for you and your motorcycles.
