What about the Motofizz magnetic map bag?

Tank Bag

For a magnetic the rocket manta xl works and does have a phone pocket on top.

I use a wolfman enduro bag because it also goes on my husky, so I can just keep my junk in it and transfer from bike to bike.

The enduro bag has a map pocket on top. I never bother to look at my phone when riding, keep in a pocket or tank bag.


Here's my manta xl, fits nice on the bike but I don't care for the magnets on the paint. When it was new it would put dimples in the soft paint from the vinyl under the magnets. Now that the paint is hard its a non-issue, but I don't use it any more. If you want to try one out for dirt cheap I'll make you a helluva deal.

It's a nice size, you can put a lot of stuff in it, even a clear face shield or a big DSLR camera. Has a seperate pocket on the back for an ipod or similar device and a earbud port.








Here's the wolfman enduro tank bag. It's small but does the trick.




If you're really just after a phone and a pair of glasses and such, the regular manta is even smaller and would work really well - $55

This is a front shot of mine The bars are the Happy Trails Nerf Bars.

Although not seen in this picture, I don't have off the shelf rear bars, instead I have a set of rear pannier racks made by MisterPX from the forums here. He made them out of box steel, and they are absolutely awesome. They feel as durable as the front crash bars do, and I had him mate them with a quick release side mounting kit. The panniers are going to be made from a pair of 30mm rocket cans courtesy of a local army surplus store (they were like $35 each, but no shipping) which I have yet to paint (going to do that today actually.)

When you're looking for crash guards, remember, an extra inch between the bike and the tank/plastics is a helluva lot more force they can deflect before the guards are crushed into the bike.

I have the regular Manta and it works very well - just very easy to mount etc. for day trips. I also have the Worlfman for when I'm on longer trips - it also is very good.

Seriously?

I know this a pretty weak looking item, but is it really that bad that the cycle cannot be lifted with it still in place?
Huh... been putting mine on a jack since day one. Of note, the flimsy plate makes the bike VERY unstable. The easy fix is a 1.5" block between the jack and mounting nub just behing the rh footpeg.

This will be a two prong post...

First, on the subject of tank bags, I was looking for a small tank bag for my new 800xc, one that wouldn't affect the paint, and came across the Bags connection "daypack" 5-7L in size and uses their evo quick connect tank ring mount.

Looks good and not too big to look stupid on the bike.

Second, I have read of the front fender riser from touratech, but after a search of their website I cannot fond it, anyone have a part number or link to it?

Thanks

Thanks for all the info and posting the pics. What type of rack do you have underneath that seahorse top box? It is a good looking set up and is what I am after.

Nice seeing all these white Tigers, good choice if I do say so myself.

I just got my '13 white roadie a few OEM accessories added; I have a lot of farkeling to do.

I think this Givi might be just what I need. So will a phone fit in the map case ok? I would appreciate the photos to see how it looks on the tiger.

The phone fits in the map case just fine, it also comes with a GPS/phone holder that secures to the top and then recesses into one of the pockets, I would caution about having your phone on direct sunlight for long trips as it will overheat and possibly fry! Don’t ask how I know, for short trips around town should be fine. You will have to buy the tank lock adaptor ring for the tiger separately (about $15).

+1 on the adventure spec crash bars. I am going to replace my Triumph engine bars and Touratech uppers with them.
I did not like (personal opinion YMMV) the way the TT upper bars attached and although the Triumph lower bars protect the engine very well (see my ahem "crash report" http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=433 earlier in this thread) the ADV Spec ones seem to do the job of both upper and lower bars without the "I am not sure about that" fixings for the upper bars.

slightly off topic, I did get the barkbusters, very nice product. Very good weather protection compared to the XC hand guards plus reinforced plus not connected to the lever mounts.


This of course means that I have Upper and Lower Engine bars for sale....
