Which tankbag works best with the GSPD tank ?!

Hello all,

What tank bags are you using with your GSPD tank?

I have a few options, but wanted to see what everyone recommended.

Attached is a pic of my tank !

Thanks,

Here are some pictures of a well-used BMW oem GS Vario tank bag with the GS base. ( a very old one - the newer ones are black instead of grey.)



The base straps on front and back - it holds on really well. Over time, the strap gets frayed, but it can be re-sewn if it breaks as done here.



I had this bag out already because the two bikes that this worked on (with different bases) are gone, and another inmate wanted the k-type base, so I had to dig it out of deep storage anyway.

These tank bags take a lot of abuse and keep going - the top zip is shot on this one, but if I was to get another R100GS, I'd probably just put a new zipper in this one and its good for many thousands more miles...

The nice thing about the BMW oem tank bags is that they don't interfere with the handlebars - I put a different bag on one time and it limited how far I could turn the bars.

Why ??

The tank already has huge storage !

You put a tank bag on and make the tank storage inaccessible.

Carry less stuff ;-)

I just did 1600 miles on a PD with the stock bag and it works great.. As well look at the Wolfman tank bags.

I really like the Wolfman Expedition bag but also like the narrower footprint of the Fandango. Both good bags.
Mine is sitting on the bike as I had it on my XR460/4 Scrapheap Bike.



Here it is on the Scrapper

This was on my 1100GS for seven years and I was more than happy with it; now it's on my 100GS. I had to be a bit creative with the rear mounting method on the R100, but it works really well.

It has a cutaway on the front which sits nicely around the 35 litre and 26 litre fuel tank cap.

For in tank storage models from the 90's, the factory Multivario tank bag and mount allow pretty easy access to internal tank compartment. A few pulls of the zippers and your in there.




For fitment and stability the factory bag maybe the best but it can be bulky.
As mentioned earlier, it allows for full turning radius and will not bump the bars or worse the starter button on a hard R turn.

The other nice thing about the factory bag is expandability. The zip in expander comes in handy at times.

Used ones come up routinely on ebay and the PD base mounting base is, last I checked, still available from BMW.

You could buy a Multivario tank bag for a 80's K bike and use it with a PD base. Only issue is making sure the zippers match on the bag and mount. If not, just have them replaced.
