    Tank Bag

    Looking for a suitable tank bag to supplement the 2 panniers I have for a long European trip this summer. Nothing too large just to carry a few items for easy access.  Any recommendations?

    I use a SW-Motech Daypack Pro on my bike. It's definitely not huge but it's big enough for bits and pieces and also has an expansion from 5 to 8 litres. The only issue is that it's not 100% waterproof unless you use the supplied cover.



    Also, I find it doesn't work well with my GPS, which is mounted on the bars - but I guess this applies to any tank bag.

    Love my SW-MOTECH EVO Engage tank bag. Most used kit on bike.

    Givi BF 11 tank ring ordered for my about to be delivered V2 950.
    Hopefully my tank bag will sit nicely on the tank.

    Fitted the Givi tank ring today.
    My 15litre Givi (xs307??) completely obscures the ignition key and fouls the rotated bars. It won't be getting used on the V2 that's for sure.

    Decided to go for the SW-MOTECH PRO Micro Tank Bag which was all I needed in size.  Looks like a quality bag.  Haven't fitted yet as the Tank Ring I ordered is the wrong one (seems to have 2 which they claim fits Ducati's)  :003:

    SidG has a pro tank ring for sale on the sales section for 15 - would echo the SW Motech route - bought the Engage Pro recently and used on trip to Spain / France - compact - really useful space - and the system works really well compared to unclipping straps etc
