Great idea... only the picture was taken in the shop... no Triumph rings stocked, so I've yet to buy it .... placed the bag on the tank while there , it fits the contours pretty well and isn't over big... the only thing I'd have liked to see on it was a clear map pocket, but I understand you can buy them separately anyway

In a couple of weeks time I get my Explorer and I already have the ring to move a similar bag from my GS (with map pocket). I will try and post pics then.

That will save you a few quid

I went in to Hein Gericke with a '40 off if you spend 160' voucher, and would have bought the tank bag.. until it was pointed out the offer was for own brand stuff only ....

At least you'll be paying for good quality.

I have the same system (different bag) on my Daytona 955 and it really works well.

It does seem MUCH better than having to strap a harness to the bike

Much much.

After fiddling with a harness bag on my Tiger for a few years, i switched to a Baglux cover and bag and have never missed the harness bag.

I couldn't find a used baglux for the Daytona so i spent the money on the Bags Connection system and i really like it so far. An extra advantage is that if you so chose, you could have multiple bags depending on purpose.

Just make sure the release strap doesn't get caugh under the bag when you're "hooking" it on.
