I have a similar tank bag on my V-Strom 650 and really like it. This is the one by Givi using what they call their "Tanklock" system. Seems to be the same idea - a ring that installs around the gas filler and a mating ring on the bottom of the bag. It is very quick to remove and attach and seem to remain in place quite well.

Whatever manufacturer you go with I think the attachment method works well and is quite convenient.

I have the SW-Motech Evo Daypack, and really like it. Not as spacious as the City Bag, but mine works well for my needs. The lock system works very well and is very secure. However, you do need to insure that it is properly seated for the locking mechanism to engage. I've had a few instances of the bag not locking into place due to not being properly aligned with the mounting ring, and thus not fully seating. When mounting any of the Evo tank ring bags, you definitely want to give it a quick tug to insure that it fully locked into place. Other than that, a very convenient and quick locking system.

I also use the SW-Motech tank bag on my Ducati. I really like how it just locks in, no straps or magnets. Easy to remove for gas, and reattach.

Thanks for the reply's, guess I'll be ordering one. How tough was it to drill the bag ?

Not difficult at all. Any household drill should do. They include a drill bit, and a plastic template for marking the bottom of the tank bag.

I use a Givi 3d603

Givi 3D603 Tanklock Tankbag - RevZilla


Haven't had a single problem with it. Fits my camera perfectly (and I do mean perfectly, I was going to use foam to fit it and found it fit so well it wasn't needed). Snaps into place very securely and instantly. Comes off easily. Has a clear screen on top, a good place for a map or Gps.

They too require mounting hardware, but installing that is basically removing 3 screws from the gas cap cover, putting the hardware ring over it, putting 3 screws back in. Has a low profile, looks good when not in use.

You won't have any regrets once you get it; I've had an SW Motech expandable tail bag for several years and love it. It's done Oregon trips, Leavenworth runs and overnight trips without any issues at all. The materials are very high quality, nice stout zippers and sturdy pulls.

Enjoy, hope to see you on a bike night and ride with ya again soon Jim.

  In the past.

I was in the market last year for a tank bag. Mostly I wanted a clear map pocket so I could throw my phone in there. I bought this

I wanted the smallest bag I could find but this turned out really nice. It has a built in cable run so you could connect to the power for a charger. The map pocket is a little short for a standard map though. It will hang out the bottom where the velcro is and get soggy if it gets wet. I can still fit a DSLR inside and the inside stays dry.
