X2 and actually a full review of the quality and fit

Point being, you could do that to. They'd need a tank for measurements, lose the quilting, careful flatening of the seams to avoid rubbing on the tank, keep it plain, think hard about the fasteners/straps...velcro v buckles v clips. Plastic buckles of course, one loop at the steering head, one loop behind the taps, but not over the air intakes...

that look nice maybe this is the way to go (custom made)

do you have any photo of the mustang one?

If you do, and it's in decent shape... I've had ads out forever trying to track one down.

I regret selling that bike, but since I've replaced it I REALLY regret that cover going with it.

The Basgter I had for an R1100RS I was riding years ago was top quality... fit great, the tank bag was really functional and easy to use. Nicely made stuff.

The Mustang cover I had for my old GS was fine, fit pretty well but had this wierd padding underneaty that really held dirt and scratched up the tank no matter what I did. Perhaps having a cover on a GS was not a good idea.

I love the pockets on my mustang cover. Phone and keys in one side, wallet and napkins in the other. I prefer it over a tank bag and use the mappocket as needed.

Agree about the padding, not the best. Also I needed to reinforce the pockets a bit (needs it again) and had some tougher material added to the areas where it "grabs" the tank to make it last.

If you don't mind being without it, it'd make a fine pattern. I think it's time I investigated making some up using the lessons we've learned from others to correct some deficiencies.

Perfect. Let's give the OP a few days to respond and if he doesn't want it I'll certainly be happy to give it a try.

So there's a Bagster bra with tank bag on eBay if anyone is interested. Search "Bagster BMW", newly listed.
