best tank bag for the CT?
on: December 03, 2020, 05:40:53 PM
For ages I used a bagalux tank cover with clip on bag -which always seemed to slide to one side or t'other.Given I have the top box and hippo panniers it doesnt have to be large but should have a clear phone holder in the top- I can't seem to get anyone to comment on the "above dash" frame that sells for about £20.
so most firms offer the clip ring mount system - anyone care to comment on how it works for them?

givi for me with the Tanklock ring........i think the bag I use is an ST602 (I think) and it has a phone window on the top cover that is the perfect size for a Samsung S20......I have the phone set that it switches to Android Auto when it connects to my SENA SRL2 (I also ave a Tom Tom mounted above the clocks)

Only photo I have with the Givi and the TomTom in view....

That was earlier in the year when I was doing some charity PPE collections and deliveries.

The PS4 came with the bike.......I hate them (well, I dislike them) always have, I changed them for Dunlop RSIII and now I have Conti TA3 (which I am very impressed with)

Same givi tanklock bag on mine.
If using top box and/or panniers, then this has plenty of room
for things you may need on route.
The clear cover also allows you to work the touch screen of your
phone, as long as you don't have your gloves on, without removing it.

I have the Bagster system, a fixed tank cover protects the tank and the bag clips on. Only trouble is, the initial outlay for the cover although I picked mine up fairly cheaply On eBay

I don't use tankbags anymore but on the VTEC i always had a SW Motech (Bags Connection) quicklock.
Used it for 8 years and almost 100k/km and sold it after i crashed the bike and the guy who bought is uses it also already 3 years.
If i have a need for a tankbag again it will be another SW Motech.
