We try to make the BEST luggage and most functional luggage in the world hands down.
WE DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE our luggage right in our shop.


RKA manufactures a complete line of motorcycle luggage, using the best materials.

Completely lined and finished inside.
The most water-resistant product on the market today.
We try to keep all products in stock but custom colors can take a little time. this is what we like to do for you, we can personalize your luggage to coordinate with your ride.
So give us a call and let us make something special for you.

We have over 75 years combined riding experience and Richard & Kathy have designed every piece of luggage we sell.
So everything you see here is FUNCTIONAL, BEAUTIFUL, the highest QUALITY and DESIGNED, MANUFACTURED in Sonoma County, CA.
You can purchase direct from us, the manufacturers. RKA understands your needs, you may buy direct from the source, better communications about what your needs are, that way you get what you want, not what is sitting on the self. So get on the phone!! 1-707-836-7659

The idea for RKA was started in 1983 with one bag we decided to try and market, thinking we would become at least millionaires in a year!! NOT!
The business was actually started in March of 1985.
We started with only one item and have expanded to the products you see in this online brochure
Richard & Kathy (The R&K) are both from the thoroughbred race horse industry.
