Bags Connection Tankbags

I am considering the purchase of either the Bags Connection City tankbag or the Engage tankbag. What is making this decision difficult is the fact that I have never actually seen either, or a picture of either, on an R1200RT. If any of you have a photo of either of these bags on an RT I would appreciate seeing it. Thanks.

Re: Bags Connection Tankbags

I don't have the Bags Connection bag. I've got the overpriced BMW bag. That being said, one of my riding partners bought an independent shop a few months ago and sells the Bag Connection gear.

They are everything their website says they are. Extremely well made and the quick release is painless.

I may even buy one to replace my BMW tank bag. They are, (IMO) that much better.

Re: Bags Connection Tankbags

Im not home now for a pic but, I have the DayPack and the XL bag for trips. Both are nice, great construction. The convience at gas stops make it worth the price not to mention no scuffs and scratches onthe paint. .

Re: Bags Connection Tankbags

I recently purchased the Fasma tank bag.
Just installed it on mt 11 RT. haven't had a chane to ride with it yet but it seems to be a very durable bag. It comes with a rain cover. The zippers seem to work very nice. I had looked at a lot of tank bags and this caught my eye.
