Tank bag recommendations please
« on: October 07, 2021, 03:36:20 PM »
My Givi tank lock bag is long in the tooth and I'm looking for a replacement.  I'm looking for another tank bag that doesn't touch the tank and is no larger than 15 liters. 
I've seen the SW Motech magnetic tank bags.  Opinions on those?  Any others?
Thanks.

I have just bought the SW Motech Evo city tank bag which is 11-15ltrs, quality is excellent and should fit your bill exactly. You will also need an evo tank ring to suit your Triumph. Hope this helps.

SW Motech City., yep, yep, yep, and its expand-a-bubble. Good bit of kit.

+1. I have the Givi 602, very good but discontinued. I think the 611 is the replacement

I've got a SW motech and used the same tank ring now on 5 triumphs. I remember having to drill my own holes in the bag for the tank ring fitment to go on the bag
If I was buying new I like the look of the shad pin system https://shad.co.uk/collections/tank-bags/products/shad-e-16p-pin-system-tank-bag-11-15-litre-x0se16p
