RKA & Mike Corbin Team up

RKA & Mike Corbin Team up

When Kathy and I got married in 1985 and she learned to ride that same year. We went to see Mike Corbin right away to get her a lower seat for the beat-up Suzuki GS550. After that learning experience she went through a 1987 Hurricane 600 and then the proud owner of a 1990 Ducati Paso 906! Yup that’s Corbin seats on both of them. Hard to see the seat with our early efforts at motorcycle luggage. Isn’t that Ducati just the “cat’s meow” with that beautiful woman and the color matched luggage? AND a bonus … the very first look at our fledgling communications tankbag!





For your information Kathy is the sole proprietor of RKA. Owns motorcycle business rides Motorcycles AND just happens to be a beautiful woman! My favorite photo of Kathy at Las Vegas international Speed way.

So “Mike Corbin” and “RKA” have been personal friends and associates for 30 years now and this last summer we decided to collaborate on a couple of projects just to see how it would go.

The Slingshot’s Corbin Fleetliners RKA saddlebag liners was first and Kathy and Marina (Our head Craftsperson) came up with this great design and they are selling as fast as we can make them.



We also designed bags for the behind the seat storage area.



The second project was a little harder still. The (LINK) Fleetliner Spyder Saddlebag liners. The inside of these look like a rubric’s cube ;-).

This project was just completed yesterday! The Saddlebags are on their way back to Mike with the sample liners inside.

Again Kathy and Marina produced this fabulous SIX piece set for the Spyder!



So we are looking for a great relationship to continue with Mike Corbin and his Wizards!

In closing some time sensitive information.

I am in Sacramento to visit my sister.
Then see Glenn at Clearwater lights Saturday for his fall BBQ. If you are in the area of Ranch Cordova Stop by and say hi.

Lastly on Saturday November 21 RKA and Sonoma Raceway are having their
(LINK) 15th Annual Food drive ride. We always have a great turn out but every one scares the crap out of use by signing up at the last minute! So connect Richard or Kathy NOW and sign in. Great Ride, Great food donations, Laps around the track, Lunch at the track, and a GREAT drawing to boot!

See ya
