    So technically speaking, it is actually a "thingy" then. LOL

    Looking at it now that makes perfect sense. Thanks!

    It’s only “dedicated” because it says 1250 now instead of 1200.

    The black stuff on the red thingy is regular old heat shrink wrap, I pulled one apart by accident moving my bag from 1200 to 1250 and just put a new piece of heat shrink on it.

    I wonder if one of the smaller Revzilla bags come without the water proof douche sack inside...

    Bag Le Douche may be rolled up and secured out of the way when not deployed. I've never used it and the contents don't get wet (except the map pocket).
    I think it may be beneficial if you leave your bike parked in a downpour. When riding in the rain, inside of the main bag stays dry.

    I get it. I just find the baggie in the way. Sort of an overkill idea for everyday use.

    @ckindt in this pic it appears you have some type of tank protector. Where did you get the rubber piece seen here between the straps near the bag? Thanks!

    I used a BMW tankbag on both my 14 and 18 GSA. I grew tired of the mounting straps, fragile zippers/zipper pulls and the yellowing map case which wasn't waterproof and would fog up inside.
    This year I switched to SW Motech Quick-Lock tankbags; the smaller daypack for short rides and the large GS bag for my multi-day trips. They both use the same secure mounting ring on the gas tank.
    Easy on and off and NO straps. Best of all, I was able to get both bags and the mounting ring on sale for less than a new BMW bag.

    @Old Nuke those are valid points. I had a SW-M bag on my last GSA and liked it. I wasn't crazy about the looks but it was effective and easy to remove to fuel up. Adding another choice to the mix.
