I like this bag, but if I were to buy another I would get one that is water proof. I keep all my electronics in my tank bag - camera, cell phone ect. I now keep them in a water proof bag with in my tank bag.

Other than that, this is about the perfect bag for my needs.

Thanks
Yes, a nice double-sided map pocket is included. I don't know about the web site, but the rain cover is on the same page in the catalog. It works well.

I looked at the Touratech bag at the dealership yesterday. Sheesh! $265 for a tank bag? WTF? It must have been made by elves sewing golden unicorn hair.

I dont have that kind of bread so I made due with a Mountainsmith hiking bag I already had. BTW, the Mountainsmith new was likr $65 and I have had 10 years of hiking, boating, biking... etc. Well, its my new tank bag and it didnt cost me anything extra.

The Cortech mini looks like the best for me. When I have the extra coin, thats what I will get, but for now the Mountainsmith will do.

I am also guilty of using a "getto" tank bag. $200+ is NOT in the budget now or in the forseable future for a bag so I use my Dakine Hiking bag. I keep my wallet camera, tissues etc.... It is secured with velcro straps and held up well for a recent two week trip I took...

picture to follow.

Recon 11 from www.newenough.com

Cheap but skip the instructions for mounting. The better way is to not use the strap around the headstock but go through in back of it. If anyone buys one they can PM me and I will send you pics. Or have a look here:

It is post #28 with pictures.

I will eventually shoot the lock off my wallet and buy a bag. I will probably get the wunderlich bag. So far everything I have ordered from them is top notch.

I did order and return a bunch of cheap crappy bags that didn't fit the bike right and I figure those bags from wunderlich are probably worth what they are asking after seeing how horribly tank bags that are not made for F800gs fit, or I should say did not fit.

For now my little hiking bag works just fine...and the $200 is going towards some nice heated gear.

Not sure if this is the proper place to post this but...
This place has the orange GL Fandango tank bags on sale for $125
http://www.bestrestproducts.com/p-27...-tank-bag.aspx
No affiliation, just passing on a decent deal. The best price I've seen is in the $149 range. Unfortunately I want a black one.

Rainier





Expanded



Has a lot of areas with Velcro. Works good with my Heat Troller for heated clothing.



I was wondering before I bought the bag if it was going to be way big. It works well and I like to stand a lot.

I FINALLY got a Cortech Super Mini. It seems just right on the FGS. Not big and bulky, but big enough to take the bare essentials.
I'd rather have no tank bag at all. But when I need one, I like the fit of the Cortech Super Mini.

Likewise I am a fan of the Cortech as well, I was not keen on how the front strap mounted (which is a pretty common set up but not so hot if you don't always use the tankbag) so devised another approach:
