I put my Held on from my ZRX and it is ok but it doesn't lie flat. I am mostly interested in the tank bag as a map case ( for easy access).

wobbly boot, I hope I didn't miss lead anyone, but the Bag Connection Bag does not touch the tank either, I just said that bags that do touch the tank can cause paint scratching. The Givi setup looked good to me to, I only went with the BC because I had one on my BMW GSA and I liked it.

No problem trainman.....I don't think we get that brand here in Australia...not sure as far as I know Givi is the only one here with that system...but i could be wrong and usually are

I use an electrified bags connection daypack. I have 2 buddies and one uses a Wolfman Ranier and the other uses a mid size magnetic cortech.

Found my packing slip from 2/3/11. Part # 1597309 (WP-470-1070) Fieldsheer Contour Tank bag from Bike Bandit. I'm just starting to look for a strap mount base so I can use it on a R1200GS that ended up in my garage. If I find out more I'll PM you.

I have one too - it stays very 'glued' to the tank and is a perfect 'magnetic' fit for it too. Excellent features and quite roomy to carry daily items.

Oxford Lifetime Luggage. Come with 3 layers, so you can add/remove depending on what you need to carry. Seems like really made, good quality stuff. Same company that makes the Hot Grips (UK based).

I have a Firstgear Silverstone magnetic bag. It fits great but is on the small side. I should've gone for the Silverstone II.

my cortech held on my Vee in my crash. it had a few heavy items in it, and it also held fast on my wee when i dumped it in the dirt. so even with 5-7 lbs in it it still held on without slipping.

It should be noted that it does have a quick release strap that wraps around the tripple. so even if it does come loose its staying with the bike.

Zipper pulls suck, 3 of 4 now have zip ties as pulls after they broke. I hear i can get it warrantied tho.
