I use this one if I am in a coffee shop and left it locked to the bike - it also is long enough to attach the helmet if only a 10 minute stop.

I got the SW Motech EVO Engage recently and really like it.  Its not huge but holds quite a bit.  Follows the tank contour pretty well.

The SW Motech EVO Engage fits perfectly and looks good.

I have the SW Motech "City" tank bag which I find just the right compromise of size and not getting in the way. I had the bigger "GS" for a while but found it just a bit too big.

Great quality, I also have the powered ring so I can charge stuff inside the tank bag.

I had the Givi Tank lock bags on my previous bikes, I switched to the SW Motech bags because at the time they didnt do a tank ring for the XR and SW did. Else I suspect I would have stayed with the Givi bag.

Givi make great stuff too and some nice tankbags.

I've got the genuine BMW expandable one for sale in the 'for sale' section if anyone's interested.  It's brand new & unused...

I bought the Givi XS307 tanklock bag
big enouh for what I need, no big issues with the handlebars, even at full lock, and this one gives me more freedom to move when riding compared to the GIVI XS308 (which follows the shape of the tank better)....
