    Hi All
    Just asking what is a good tank bag to purchase? There is a tank ring on the bike at the moment but don't know the size or make or is a standard for the CT
    Thanks in advance

    I guess it would depend on what you want from the bag. I have a givi tank-loc, just big enough for phone, glasses, change etc. I like it for tolls and passport when travelling.
    I personally don't like a huge bag in front of me. The tank angles sharply, which makes the choice awkward. Particularly if you can't try it first.

    More brands have a tank ring. You always swap it for another ring compatible brand/type/size.
    Be aware that the ring and bag should match. E.g. find the bag you want than lookup what ring you need to use.

    Some bags come with a shoulder strap. Make sure you close the bag before walk away with the bag on your shoulder.  :008:
