    I hate tank bags, but the GL is one I can stomach. I have actually grown to like it.

    I know this is a tank bag thread but I didn't want to put a tank bag on because I didn't want to scuff up my fake tank, so I came up with this idea.

    Has anyone used the Wolfman Timberwolf bag?

    I am torn between the Timberwolf and the Explorer Lite...

    You're going to get a better fit with the Explorer Lite, as it's sloped bottom fit will mate up better on the sloped tank of your F800. The Explorer Lite is also a foam sidewall as opposed to the Timberwolf's hard plastic sides. That makes standing and moving on the pegs quite a bit nicer on the nether regions when you get into the nastys.

    gianni1951-That's a nice looking setup. Do you have to drill into the bag to get the mounts on there? I thought I remember reading that somewhere. That's my only concern with it.

    Thanks,
    Pat

    Yes, Pat. You have to drill the bag. But isn't a problem (according to me). Thanks.

    Personal preference I guess... I love the fit and size of the Wunderlich bag. I don't use it expanded usually unless I'm on a trip carrying water and a camera.

    I found my old tank bag from my KTM 950SE that I was planning to sell.
    But with some adjustments it fits the 800GS perfect.

    I have the 700 GS and used to have a map case and tank bag, until I almost wrecked looking at it while going down the road…This year I bought a set of tank panniers by Aero-stitch and have more room, plus nothing on the tank. I liked it so much that I bought the next bigger size and have them in front of my Jesses on the foot pegs. I carry a gallon of gas on the right and a gallon of water on the left. Each set cost about $140. One advantage is the tank set serves as a fairing for my knees and upper legs. I did waterproof the bags.

    Lots of good choices. I went with TT Touring Bag All Black. Easy to mount and remove.....no zips or buckles. Has side straps which you won't need unless you are roughing around. Side pockets and spot to hold gloves. Clean look and easy to use. Able to use SW Motech GPS mount with Zumo 550 where handlebar bolts fasten. View of GPS is not blocked by tankbag nor does it block instrument view. Way pricey piece of kit.

    i was just looking at that bag,
    and the givi tank lock solution as well.

    does the motech cover your ignition and power outlet?

    Bag don't cover ignition, only a little tit the power outlet, but you can still use, because the bag is higher than the outlet.
