What tank bag are you using?

I did a search and surprised nothing came up, maybe I missed it. But I'm looking for a tank bag thread that compares what is the best fit on the 2014+ DL1000. Of course I want a deal if at all possible, but more than that, I want something that works well(no interference issues).

I use a Bags Connection. Easy on and off with the lock ring, and the profile to the tank is perfect.

I've used Wolfman gear on my dirt bikes for years, so picked up their Rainer for the V2 based on some other recommendations here. I like it. Easy to remove, throw on the straps and use it as a back pack.



This is the best pic I could find of it on my bike.

I use Kappa bag with Givi shoe. (Kappa is low-cost Givi). There is a horseshoe made by Givi. It's bolted arround tank filler cap and it stays there all the time. The bag has support on the bottom and you simply click it into the horseshoe. It doesn't interfere with anything nor it touches the tank. You remove the bag simply by pressing release button.
So, Givi horseshoe is needed and from there you go on and choose either Givi or Kappa bag, the size you like, that is compatible with this mechanism.
So, Givi horseshoe you need is Givi BF18 (for our bikes) and then, if you choose Givi bag, there is XS306, XS308, XS308, those are semi-rigid bags, and then 3D603 and 3D604, those are rigid ones. I've chosen Kappa bag just because it was cheaper and it looked the same as Givi.
That is the one on the photo. It's empty on the photo. It also has expandable floor so you can gain 2-3 inches in hight if you open it.

I've ridden with it fully loaded and extended on higher speeds for long time and it has never moved.

Givi 3D603 Tanklock on my 650 and it works great. I tried a few others but the bars hit all of the bags but the Givi. The Rok Risers pull the bars back a bit which doesn't help. I'd like a bigger one for longer trips though.

For you guys with the Wolfman Rainier tank bag, how much of a pain is it to fuel the bike when you are riding with the bag?

Pop the two clips at the front of the bag and flop it backwards/upside down and fuel the bike. When your done, just flip it back over and snap the clips together.

I just don't think you can beat the Givi Tank Lock system. the bag goes on and comes off like a magic trick. The tank ring is unobtrusive when the bag is removed(very much un-like some other tank lock rings systems) and the bags are world class.

IMO tank lock is far and away the best option.

The XS307 is a really good choice. https://youtu.be/wtNHwmROdHg

Here's teh hole line. GIVI Tanklock System
