Givi ST602 Tank Bag
on: May 29, 2018, 01:27:10 PM
Anyone using one of these on their XR?
https://www.givi.co.uk/soft-bags/Tank%20Bags/ST602%20TANKLOCK

My mate has one on his S1000R and it's really handy for small items like a wallet, phone, sunglasses, spare ear plugs, etc.
But I wonder if the higher tank on the XR means it it might obscure the instruments and generally get in the way a bit.

I'd be grateful for views from anyone using one?
Thanks

I have a small tanklock bag (very much like that) for day trips and its fine as you also sit high

Also have a very LARGE version (for weekends and to add to SHAD expandable top box for longer) and even this is not too bad - you forget about it after a while and its really stable.

To try it I went to a dealer and asked nicely if I could take it outside and place it on the bike and get a feeling from the seat - don't use it a lot - but real quick with tanklock if you want it

I use  one on my xr and it doesn't get in the way of anything. Why not just place your mates bag on your tank just to see for yourself.

I've got one, very handy for days out and long trips, keep all valuable items in front of me
Clicks on, no marks on tank

I have a SW Motech City bag for longer trips and a Daypack for shorter ones. Fits on the fuel filler like the Givi Quick Lock bags.

Very pleased with it and the customer service is very good from the importer.
