Tank Bags for the '14 Strom

Anyone got a Quick Lock or Tank Lock type tank bag for their bike yet? If so, what model and do you like it or not? I'm curious what's available and works well.

Thanks.

Phil,

If the bolt pattern is the same as the older bikes, then all the current bags will fit. At least the tank ring.

I put the Suzuki (Bags Connection) "City" bag on the new Vee2. I installed it as far forward as possible to avoid it interfering when standing.

It holds my Olympia Horizon jacket and pants, curved sunglasses case, elasticized net, two adjustable bungee cords, carrying strap, rain cover and helmet (ski) lock.

It also managed four Blu-ray cases on top of everything else, so it's incredibly roomy and expandable.

You can fabricate a locking pin to prevent removal and the main compartment can accommodate a small luggage lock. A sweet deal that looks boss too!

I've been using a Givi Tanklock for a couple of years... On my 2nd one. Moved it from my last bike -- just needed a new tank ring.

This is the model I'm using now, XS307... good size (not too big, not too small), works great. No issues.

VGents,
Could you post a picture of your tank bag set up. I am riding naked now without any ability to carry. I was waiting for the after market to make tank bags available for the Vee2, but you seem to have done so already. There is a Suzuki dealer on Ebay selling the new Suzuki huge tank bag for the Vee2, but they want $375. which is outrageous. I had the twisted throttle electrified bag with quick lock and removal on my '11 Wee and loved it. It would be great to see your setup if you can. In addition, what hardware did you need to purchase and install. Thanks.

Also, I have a great GIVI V46 topcase for which I am waiting for them to come out with a install plate to fit. Does anyone know if top cases can be retrofitted with other install plates?

I've always liked the XS308 and want to use it. The givi.it website shows the BF18 Tanklock ring needed . I can't find it yet in the US for sale yet. Looking.........

It appears that the Givi BF18 tank lock ring is still in production and not for sale yet.

Here are a few photos of the tank bag. It's in the fully expanded position to accommodate all my stuff. That will change now that I've successfully mounted my Givi E460.







BTW, I installed the mirror extensions and highly recommend them - a 100% improvement in rearward visibility.

I like that Suzuki bag, is that mounted to the tank ring? I just got the Givi xs308 Adventure bag which mounts to the tank ring. It's 20 litre, and contours the tank like the Suzuki bag above, rather than being flat on the bottom like the xs307.

V-Gehts,

" Here are a few photos of the tank bag. It's in the fully expanded position to accommodate all my stuff. That will change now that I've successfully mounted my Givi E460."

Boy, you must be very ingenious V-Gehts. Most of us have been waiting for compatible accessories to come out! How did you mount your Givi topbox? I have my V46 from my Wee waiting for the correct hardware to come out to be able to mount it on my Vee2. What ingenious method did you use? Pray tell.
