I also have the Givi XS308. I had a magnetic Tourmaster that I used on my previous bike and served me well, but I didn't like how it fit on my D'elle, not enough magnet contact. Givi's Tank Lock system has the largest ring and base mount and is very stable on the bike. It also has a quick release lever to remove the bag, which I like better than other bags which use a pull cord mechanism. With any tank ring system, the bag makes negligible or no contact with painted surfaces. Very well made, quality hardware, and comes with a removable map holder and clear panel rain cover.
Givi also has come out with a key-lockable Tank Lock system (UT309 & UT310) which locks the bag to the tank ring. Pretty pricey at US$309-$319. I emailed them and the locking base is not available as a separate accessory.
