Wanted Strap on Tank Bag

#4
Lidl's £20 cheapo worked well for three years for me, spend half an hour sorting out the bra straps then it just zips on and off. Much higher capacity than the BM specific ones. Not as quick on-off as Baglux though.

Hi Blueoffroader400,

I find the best place in the country for motorcycle assesories/parts/spares is:
Motorbike Parts, Motorbike Clothing and Accessories Telford Shropshire

Kriega and OGIO stockists. Huge discounts on line. You could also visit the shop in Telford, Shropshire. Join them on line and you get VIP CLUB scheme that gives superb discounts.

If they haven't got it, call and they will source it for you.

Good luck mate.

Bumble squat.

The Baglux on my BMW K 1300s is the biz.

Tank paintwork protected by a colour coded cover. Tankbag expands to hold and organise a decent amount of kit, with a clear map case on top, big enough for an A4 size A-Z.

Winner.

BMW Adventure R1200 GSA, looking like its going to be bagster - do i go for full tank cover or small straps? However by the time you bought both the holder and the bag your looking at £200 + figure.

Any other suggestions

What's wrong with the BMW bag - that's what I have on my GSA. Secure, well padded, extendable and waterproof. And likely available on eBay...

Bagster is the DS answer but, as you have discovered, not a cheap option. I guess it really depends how long you intend to keep the bike. Bagster is well made, model specific, reduces likelihood of damage to your tank and will last.

If you can get across to Germany, or have friends over there, the Louis chain of bike accesory shops do a huge range of value-for-money kit including universal tank bags in both magnetic and strap on varieties.

M&P or Busters are worth looking at online and might have something to fit your needs.

Although Baglux is pricey, they're made to last, probably longer than the bike.

You could move the Baglux to the new bike, should you choose the same model, or sell it on with the old bike or separately.

Either way, it's not a bad return on your money.

Another to look at is the 'Held Martello' tank bag. Has waterproof sat nav pocket and three side pockets. Main expandable section, rain cover, map case. Can be bought with straps or magnetic base.

I have used one on my Caponord for a couple of years, plastic 'fuel tank'. Never slipped once and I have covered a few miles with it loaded up wi useless shiiite.
