Smile TV tankbag inventory

Hi there

While waiting my future TV to be delivered I'm looking what tankbag could better fit, and it's difficult to find picture of TV with tankbag ...
I know several of you had bough one, it would be nice if you could post a picture of your bike equipped with tankbag
I looked at givi, kappa, famsa, oxford ...
Many thanks

I have a Givi ST602 Tanklock bag, only 4 litres but enough for the essential bits and pieces (puncture kit, visor cleaning kit, sun glasses, phone, compact first aid kit etc.) for a day on the bike so long as the weather forecast is OK. If there's a chance I'll need waterproofs then I'll need to either strap these to the pillion seat or take the hard cases. If the weather is poor I'll be in textiles anyway.





Whilst this bag does obscure the ignition switch; thanks to the ingenious tank-lock mechanism, removal is practically instantaneous, even whilst wearing gloves, and the bag small and light enough for the advantages to out weigh the disadvantages in respect of access.

Having come from using a cavernous Baglux expanding tank-bag on my previous bike I've had to make some rationalisations in what I carry but this is never a bad thing. This included a transition to a helmet with an integral sun visor, time for a change anyway, which meant on days with variable conditions, or whilst on tour, not needing a dark visor in the tank bag (wouldn't fit in the ST602 anyway).

Very happy with the way the bag has worked for me so far. A 10 day tour at the end of this month will be the acid test.

I have the same tankbag as Streetrider. It can hold my mini compressor, puncture repair kit, glasses case, spray mister for cleaning my visor, some paper clothes, small camera and at a push a bottle of water. I can also use it to hold for instance my phone, Ipod etc when using the USB charger.

From the perspective of the Givi ST602 that I have, no problem seeing the instruments over the bag. I'm 6' (1.83m) tall but less tall riders, within reason, still should have a clear view. It's not a particularly big tank bag, only 4 litres but is, I think slightly taller than the model that Streetrider and mickr69have.

I do not have any issues seeing the dash with the tank bag installed.

my tail bag is from Dianese... good and quick to fit on because it has some snapper (4) to secure the bag.

Why destroy the beautiful lines of the TV with a tank bag? Dosnt it increase turbulence as well? Gero HH's seat bag seems a more elegant streamlined solution. What size is the bag Gero and do you have trouble swinging your leg over the bike with it on?

A matter of personal preference and habit I suppose. I have always used tank bags. Tail pack would make getting on and off harder I reckon, depends on your technique I suppose. Have seen TV being mounted by rider standing on footrest with the bike on the side stand, I prefer to have my left foot on the ground which makes it harder to get my leg over (fnar, fnar...).

Tank bag allows easy access for toll change and when leading or TECing group rides I have a PMR radio and PTT switch hanging off the new one as well.

As to turbulence; the tank bag is small and doesn't impede my body position if I want to crouch, unlike my previous Baglux that, when expanded could be leant on. As such and given the fairing it's not in the air-stream at all and not significant in crosswinds. I would say a tailbag would be more in the 'dirty air' behind the rider.

Many years ago I bought an Oxford tailbag and wound up giving it to a friend as I didn't get on with it. Funnily enough recently got a free one when buying a helmet mail order (quite decent Oxford one again), it's on eBay at the moment.

Doesn't a tailbag also destroy the beautiful lines? EDIT: Having just re-inspected Gero's pic in post #2 of this thread I do concede that his tailbag looks prettier than a tank bag, think I'd wind up accidentally kicking the bike over with one fitted though. How do you mount up Gero? Maybe I'm just too old and not flexible enough. Still prefer my butt ugly tank bag...

As said, personal preference.
