Yea, the top picture with the small tank bag is from a 7,000 mile ride I did in August 2011. At that time the only thing wolfman I had was the tank bag. I had the Giant loop bag on the back and even with it being seam sealed things still got wet on the inside. I ended up picking up a wolfman medium duffel as well for my next trip and was really impressed with it. After that I went all wolfman on the bike for luggage. The dry expedition saddle bags in the bottom picture are the latest addition.

Read this entire thread and considered all the pros and cons of the right bag for my 2012 F650GS.
The one I finally decided on is the RKA Pine Flat 13 liter with 4 attach points. At $155 it seems a great bag. I've never seen one on a bike and almost pulled the trigger on a Touratech except when I got to the price it doesn't seem justifiable.
I'll probably order the RKA this week. Has a 30 day return, so I'm cofortBle with that.
My thought process brought me from Wolfman Express or Small Expedition Then Wunderlich. GL Fandango and BMW too. Touratech looked very good
In the end I want a NEAT clean look on the bike. Lots of talk on the Cortech Superminis. Looked great but not robust enough for me.
Thanks guys for all the first hand research.

Update: after mounting and using the bag for months now I have to conclude it is a FANTASTIC bag!
Had lots of comments on where to buy it. A perfect size and shape. Looks like it was made for my bike. I'm so glad I chose this one over the others. Looked so good I decided to leave it on permanent rather than take on and off. I put some clear 3M sheets on it to protect tank. Works great.

F800gs Tank bag...got one you like? tell us about it!

After a few weeks of elaborate researching I bit the bullet, and I am now extremely happy with the Touratech Daytrip! Don't like the big ones they have at our shop, but it has to hold more than just my wallet and phone.
I equipped it with Powerlet accessories and some 12V to USB connectors to charge my Iphone and camera and evryone else's :-D
In the mean time I added some scotchguard protective sheet to the tank and side panels, damn was it a hassle until I came up with the hairdryer to let the isopropyl alcohol activate the glue and soften the foil. Came out perfect after all, curious as to how well it will hold up to dirt and frequent washing...

I ordered Cortech Super 2.0 8-Liter Strap Mounted Tank Bag. Any experience with this bag for F800GS?

I used the small Wolfman on my COBDR trip last year-no room for the brothers on the longish uphill grades! I tried the 1st Gen Buckin Roll, just didn't fit proper so I upgraded to the GenII bag. Fit is as perfect as I can imagine and the center pouch will be removable for my upcoming AZ/UTBDR trip in March!! I'm going to add a pass through SAE plug to the left pouch to work as a charging station for cameras and whatnot, right side will be my catch all and shield cleaning kit.

I hate tank bags, but the GL is one I can stomach. I have actually grown to like it.

Not a tank bang but.....

I know this is a tank bag thread but I didn't want to put a tank bag on because I didn't want to scuff up my fake tank, so I came up with this idea.

You're going to get a better fit with the Explorer Lite, as it's sloped bottom fit will mate up better on the sloped tank of your F800. The Explorer Lite is also a foam sidewall as opposed to the Timberwolf's hard plastic sides. That makes standing and moving on the pegs quite a bit nicer on the nether regions when you get into the nastys.

gianni1951-That's a nice looking setup. Do you have to drill into the bag to get the mounts on there? I thought I remember reading that somewhere. That's my only concern with it.

Thanks,
Pat

Yes, Pat. You have to drill the bag. But isn't a problem (according to me). Thanks.

I've given up on the Wunderlich tank bag. Not only is it much bigger than I was hoping, way too big to do any standing on the pegs. But they want a whopping US$249 for it!





On the German Wunderlich site is sells for €129, which works out to just about US$170 at the current exchange rate. So somebody's planning on making a tidy profit off of that item. But not from me!

Personal preference I guess... I love the fit and size of the Wunderlich bag. I don't use it expanded usually unless I'm on a trip carrying water and a camera.
