tanklock tank bag

I took a chance and ordered a Givi BF17 and the 3D603 tank bag from Amazon - if it doesn't fit I'll just return them

Had one on the RT and it worked pretty well

Not trying to be a dick here, but Did you know that the Cortech Super 2.0 8-litre bag is very popular among forum members? It looks "sexy" (some of you will remember that thread!). Just a thought, and something for you to consider if you end up returning the one you bought.

In my opinion, the Cortech looks great and functions great too.

Does it have straps or if magnetic what does it stick to? The Givi tank bag goes on or off in about 2 seconds. Easily removable if the bars get in the way for tight turns if necessary

The Cortech is strap mount. Goes on or off in 2 seconds as well. Also fits nice, looks good, and holds a decent amount of items. I gotta be honest, the look of the bag in your pic would be enough for me to return it. The Cortech is sweet. Just my $0.02. I'm not one of those guys that says everything I have is the best. My first tank bag was re-sold after one weekend. It was a POS. When I saw the Cortech at a bike shop and took it outside to trial fit, the choice was clear.

The Givi is a nice solid form tank bag. It's too small for my use but if you have used it before, you're aware of any pros/cons. Being small should allow plenty of bar room lock to lock. If it fits your needs,..👍🏼

I honestly try to not ride faster than my guardian angel can fly , however....I know it's pooped by end of the ride

I have the same Cortech. Some of us have made mods to the straps to make em easier to mount and remove. I slide mine back a little so as not to touch the switches on tight turns.

I prefer not to have straps - if I don't like the GIVI set up I can always put the bagster tank cover back on when the weather warms up and get one of their bags.

Have you looked at SW Motech?.. I know this is on an RT but I think having the ability to adjust its final position will clear the GTL bars..https://youtu.be/6OfgwREYHXQ

thanks - if the Givi doesn't work out I will look into that - didn't know it was adjustable
