Hi
Has anyone got pic of tankbag fitted trying to decide which one to go for. Any tips would be appreciated.
Thanks

Id suggest looking at the Givi Tanklock range. You have to buy an attachment for your petrol cap and the bag just clicks into it.  Makes it handy to filI up with petrol. I have 2 of them...the XS307 which is a 15 litre bag but to be honest it sticks out a bit far on the Mk2 Versys. The XS319 is a nice tidy one but it's only 3 litres.

They have a few in their range to have a look at👍

I have a bag from Xlmoto. It's maybe a budget option, which is one reason I chose it, but also it uses a strap on base as a magnetic one isn't an option. It expands to a decent size and can be rigged as a back pack off the bike. Had it a couple of years and used it for a trip to France with no problems. Hopefully I've managed to upload a couple of pics!

I just used an Oxford F1 - 7L mini tank bag, which was enough for the basics. I can no longer use it and have just dug it out of the shed and will advertise it on here. Limited area for magnets to latch onto and this did the trick perfectly.

Iíve got the sw-motech engage ,I really like it as itís not too big and follows the contours of the tank nicely.A bit pricey though.
