Help identifying tank bag ring

Hello everyone. I purchased my wee earlier this year and it already had a tank bag ring but no bag. Since most of you have more knowledge than me in this, I am seeking help identifying it.

I would like to get a bag that fits it with out having to get another ring.

Mine is a Givi and it looks nothing like it.

BTW, the tank ring only costs $20 so I would prefer to buy the bag of my choice and a matching tank ring for the little bit extra.

Thank you both. If I don't find a SW motech that I like I will get the one I want and spend the extra few bucks on the ring.

Which one you looking at? I have the Engage and the City. Started with the Engage but now only use it for local and day trips. Too small. I use the City way more and it offers sufficient room for long hauls.

What the other guy said. The rings are only about $20 or so, so find the bag you like and get a new ring. Why compromise on something like that for the sake of saving $20?

I purchased the EVO daypack for now. I'm sure i'll end up getting a bigger one down the road for longer trips. The daypack will be plenty of room for my average rides. I'm thinking over the winter season to work out getting it powered off of a pwm60 or similar to add some power into the bag for charging things like phone, camera batteries, etc. Thank you all for your help and input. It did make a difference
