Hi Qwandree,

On my side using a Givi tankbag with a tanklock system. Only "problem" is that I need to remove the tankbag to be able to put the key in, and when the tankbag is on, it is quite difficult to access the key to switch it on. But the mecanism to lock/unlock the tankbag is very practical so it's not too much an issue.

Like Marc I use a Givi Tanklock tank-bag, mine is the ST 602 model, not particularly large but adequate for for day t day essentials like phone, first aid kit, puncture repair kit, glasses etc. As I normally ride with panniers fitted anyway I'm not too concerned that it doesn't have enough room for waterproofs. It's size means that there's a clear view of the instruments and it just clears my sat nav on full lock.

Access to the ignition key, as mentioned by Marc, is restricted with the bag in place but the tanklock system makes it very easy to remove the bag reach it, yet secure once in place, it's hardly an inconvenience.

My tank bags are XS306 (25 liters) and XS307 (15 liters). Both works fine, but they look ugly on the bike, but once on the bike, I don't care (I can't see how ugly it is): what was important to me is to increase the luggage capacity and being able to do some light travelling without the need for the paniers. The small one is really too small for this, while the 25 liters model is more than fine. I have proper vision on the clocks, and the tankbag do not disturb anything, even a phone mounted on the side on the handlebar (which I do sometime when I don't want to use the Zumo).

Ultimately, the size you need depend of the use you have for it. When I go to work with the bike, generally, it is without the paniers, and the 25 liters tankbag is loaded with my Surface Pro 4, my work clothes and shoes, and there is still plenty of room left: I should be able to do a full weekend just with this one (including the sleep bag).

I just leave the panniers on the bike all the time. Looks great with them, and no real adverse handling effects.

I use a givi tanklock XS308 and I find this is the right tankbag as its shape follows the curve of the tank, and useful volume allow you to embedded all necessary stuff !

Givi Tanklock XS306 25 litre, same minor issues as above but works for me.
Enough room for waterproofs and full size camera + puncture repair kit/ bottle water with space to spare for those small essentials.

The above bag has worked on last 3 bikes as well, so IMHO good value too.

You can get rings of varying heights, I found the 20mm ring would clear the key...............just.

Givi XS306 here too! Very pleased with this bag. Has used it to 3 and 4 day roadtrips fully loaded with no problem whatsoever. Givi states 2kg max load but I have filled it x3 plus me resting on it while riding on highway straights. Tanklock system is superb.

My wife just took the XS307 (15 liters) for her Street Triple. I use now exclusively the XS306 (25 liters).

I changed recently my jacket for Dainese one, and it do not have any inside pockets (while my previous jecket had a few), and as a result, I need to find a smaller tankbag for trips that don't last more than few hours. And also noticed that I have a small issue with the XS306. It's a bit big, and once I have all my stuff inside, I struggle to find my wallet or my phone.

A smaller XS319 may fit both purpose :
- having my minimal stuff (phones, wallet, sun glasses, microfiber to clean my visor, and a 0.5 liter of water bottle) for the short trips
- having a closed box in the XS 306 where I can find my key elements

If anyone of you use a XS319, could you please confirm this is making it for the first point?


Thanks in advance.

I have the XS319. Just the right size for a day trip. I keep my puncture repair kit, mini compressor, glasses case, multitool, small spray bottle for cleaning visor and microfiber. I can also fit my GPS in the bag as well when I am off the bike. They do the 4L bag as well which I might buy for touring.
