Bags Connection "City" tank bag question

I'm looking for a tank bag that I can mount to my R1200RT tank bag frame and I like the Bags Connection "City" tank bag. Has anyone done this? Is it an easy mount?

I don't know that the Bags Connection City can mount ont the RT frame, or any other bag other than BMW's for that matter. I may be wrong, but I doubt it. Now, I have the City or another model very similar to it in (small) size. It works very well, once you have replaced the ring around your tank cap with their clip ring. You also have to screw the clip system underneath the bag, which can be a bit of a chore. But if I can do it, anybody can.

It appears that the mount is the same for their bags if you want the gascap mount. I have one for my Engage bag on my K1300GT. The mount is easy to install and enables the bag to be removed and mounted in a second. The mounting ring comes with screws that will replace the existing BMW screws and it mounts on your gas cap, 10 minute install.
