    The Wolfman that fit so well on my prior ride is just too long for the Tiger 800.
    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Just Google GIVI Tanklockbag ST 602 and you get to see the whole family...

    I prefer smaller sized tank bags and am happy with the fit and size of my Wolfman Blackhawk bag. Also intrigued by the similarly sized Giant Loop Fandango Pro although seems pricy to me.

    I’m using one of the SW-Motech Evo bags with the quick lock system that attaches to the fuel filler ring hardware. Snaps on and off in seconds and doesn't require straps, no contact with tank metal so no scratches. Once you have the mount ring in place there are several size bags to chose from and all attach the same way.

    I don’t like big bags and think I’m using the Daypack from the link provided above.

    They use the tank ring lock. Nothing goes on or comes off more conveniently.

    I use a SW Motech Evo Engage with the quick lock tank ring. I have 2” Rox risers installed. I roll my bars a little further forward than most. The heated grip switch barely bumps into the bag but it’s never been accidentally activated. I love the bag and the quick release set up. The tank ring holds the bag up off the tank so it doesn’t get marred. It is also compatible with the other SW Motech bags if I want a larger one for longer trips. I also have the electric option so that I can plug in things that need to be charged and kept safe in the bag. There is a simple electrical connection on the ring that provides power I love the bag. Easy Peasy. 7005DB72-7700-4883-BD42-9F806E0D74E6.jpeg

    I have a Fandango Pro, I like it very much. It's just about the right size. Maybe a little smaller would be nice, but I like how well it works.

    No love for the Triumph factory tank bag? I bought a used one, and I'm happy with it so far. (other than the nylon straps stretching when wet, but I figured out a fix for that, so I'm happy.)

    Have tried my FAMSA, SHAD and a couple of other related tank bags...close fit, but not 'good' solutions. So for now, one of my tried and true Kriega Tank Pads (years of use on many (many) motorcycles) is mounted on the Xca and a Kriega 10L Drybag mounted, holding all the short-term emergency necessities. Stacking another 5 or 10L bag on top is easy when needed. But having said this, the Mosko Nomad will be procured as the longer term solution.
