    Tank bags

    Ok if you've been paying attention some of you will know I've got a new 950s. I've looked everywhere and at the moment nobody, apart from Ducati, does a fitting kit for a topbox.

    So I thought I'd look for a small tank bag. Don't suppose anyone has any ideas ?

    Givi Tanklock bags are excellent. I have a large one on the multi and a small one on the triumph. Held on by the tanklock flange, so no chance of contact with paintwork and removed in a second or two.

    +1 for the givi and the attachment ring.  I got the Givi GST602 Tanklock .....to be honest the window in the top of the bag is a bit useless due to reflections but the bag itself is great.

    I too have the Givi ST602. It's very well made and I found it is actually bigger than you imagine it might be from photos.
    Only problem I've found is that the touch screen on my phone doesn't work at all well through the top pocket transparent window - but that is probably due to the screen protector on the phone. I'm guessing most people's use of that would be for a navigation app but I've got a Tom Tom anyway so it doesn't bother me.
    Life is not a rehearsal . . .

    It's a great tank bag!!!

    Here is a photo of it on my Mutley a while back whilst on tour.

    Hope it helps with how big it is and what it looks like on the bike.

    I have the Shad E10P bag with the pin lock system. It's a great bag. The next size up is fully waterproof. So easy to install and remove.
    I don't have the 950 anymore but I use it on my new bike. All I needed was a new fixing kit and sold the old one on eBay 👍

    Itís a bit pricey but I have the genuine multistrada tank bag



    Itís expandable to 15ltrs, I used it on my Europe trip earlier this year

    Before anyone asks.....thatís the included rain cover on top as itís only weather resistant not waterproof
