2008 K1200GT Tank Bag

I have the BMW tank bag and when going very slow or making a turn, the heated seats come on or worse the horn goes off. Its quite embarrasing in a crowded town and my horn keeps going off. Has anyone else had this problem and any solutions. I really like the tank bag, it is very convenient. Thanks, Kevin

That has been a problem with that bag since they came out in 2006. Do a search and you will find a lot of posts just like yours.

Thats the least of the problem, ever ride with one in a rain storm. They leak pretty bad.

Try this:

It works perfectly, without getting in the way of using the horn. Note: It uses the left side mirror mount hole in your handlebars.

The horn guard from Wunderlich, posted above, works perfectly
