Tank Bag

Has anyone been using the quick connect no touch tank bags?

I'm thinking of picking one up just a small one for the odds and ends.
I like the SW-Motech and the Givi

SW-Motech: http://shop.sw-motech.com/cgi-bin/co...27326441-16394
Givi: http://www.giviusa.com/img/54926-o-5...2-TANKLOCK.jpg

I seem to like the Givi more style and function/quality wise over the Motech.

Let me know what your thoughts are or if you have better subtitutes!

The perfect ingridients to stir a pot to make a perfect brew: A bit of Yosh a sprinkle of Ape, touch of Seargent, a breath of Race Tech,NRC,PIAA,Brembo,Galfer,CRG,Daytona,Zero Gravity,Power Commander,K&N,NGK,Factory Racing,Ivan`s,Pro Bolt Kit,Protek and Vortex.

No talent eh-hole squid, who stunts in traffic wearing flippie-floppies, board shorts and sunglasses when he is not parked at Tim Horton's representing his single-member squid bike club. Also a Fuckwad, a Jizz Receptacle and a Twat Waffle.

Re: Tank Bag

I have a joe rocket manta tank bag and I use it for the longer trips. It fits a bottle of Gatorade and my wallet along with some room for some other little munchies. Came with my bike so not sure of the cost but I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a tank bag.

Re: Tank Bag

whatever happened to magnetic tank bags that were expandable to handle not only a quick commute to work, but expanded to handle at least 15 ltrs to carry all of the sundrys?

Re: Tank Bag

Whatever happened to bikes NOT looking like fookin baggage carts at the airport terminal, and more like race bikes? (Ducking under table now)

Thats exactly what I have (not too sure on the size though!!). Its fits my shoes, trousers, shirt and lunch in for work. There is another bit that zips onto the top for if I want to completely not see the gauges (or to fit loads more in for overnight stays).

Oh I'll come!
I will stay ahead of you in a little row boat to throw you food/drink when you need while swimming.

Depending what time of day/night it is I might/might not save you from a shark attack.

Re: Tank Bag

CCM: Hence why I want a small bag to hold my valeta etc.! When you are in leathers you dont have much place to carry sunglasses, cleaner for the visor and my valet. Also have a place for the phone/MP3 and GPS

The SRAD has a nice trunk for some junk but convenience is what I'm after

Re: Tank Bag

CCM won't like this but you can get a Baglux tank cover to match the colours of your tank and a baglux tankbag that clips onto the cover...
Or as AD said the magnetic ones.

Of course I've been drinking mate!
I wouldn't be normal if I hadn't...
I purchased a part from CCM (John), and the Sradiator was good enough to help out with the shipping method.
The said item *ahem* could have been his mint untouched spare Srad '96 fuel tank, just maybe.
Thread & pics to follow in thanks of their awesome awsomeness.
