After looking on-line for a tank bag to fit my Africa Twin I kinda gave up, mainly because there were no decent pictures showing one fitted to the bike. So, after buying a beaut from Caveman this weekend, here's a couple of photo's, more to follow.



Built for the bike (or it fits rather well) Main expandable pouch with map pocket on top. 4 external pouches, shoulder strap (looped around the bag), handle and rain cover... not that you get that much rain behind the fairing. One of the best features is..



So you can easily refuel. The securing system straps to the frame rather than using magnets. The zip you can see on the top right (there's also one on the left) is for securing "side tank bags" to the crash bar. There's a bit more info on Paul's site EIBC ltd on the links page

I think Paul is the best person to ask, but I think the answer is yes. The tank bag is around £80ish according to the site

I bought a strap-on after a magnetic bag blew off the tank of my tank, I mean GS, in a strong sidewind, on the M4 just past Reading services. It was the only time I'd not used the headstock strap (idiot!). Luckily, as it was the GS, the jugs stopped it falling into the road and I was able to lift it back onto the tank.

Scared the bejesus out of me though.

Cheers

Found the Oxford cheapy worked fine on my 600TA, OK I have to unclip the headstock strap to refuel but that's no great hassle. Also the lower pocket zips off and makes into a perfect case for my camera which clips round the waist with its own strap - well useful :) It's expandable and cost €50
