    Hi,
    Can anyone give me some advice on getting a tank bag for my F800R.
    I have one, that I had on my R1100R, but it attaches by magnetism.
    Regards,
    Mark

    Hi Mark

    I think it all depends on the size of bag you want to have.

    When I got my 2014 F800R, it came with this:

    https://uk.images.search.yahoo.com/y...g&action=click

    It is small, but will hold a camera and bits and pieces.

    It fits with a ring which is attached to a small frame screwed to the top of the "tank". The frame is permanent but the bag is easily removed (half a turn) and the "tank" does not look bad when the bag is not in place.

    The actual bag comes with a waterproof cover which stretches over the whole bag if the rain is excessive.

    Hope that helps a little.

    Givi also do larger versions, which will probably fit the same ring.

    Best wishes,

    Rob.

    Thanks Rob.
    I'll check out a local Givi dealer. I had a Givi top-box on a Honda 919 I owned and it was a quality product. I'd like to get one to hold all the bits and pieces I take on a ride. If it is easily detachable that is also a bonus.
    Regards
    Mark

    Hi Mark. It is easily detached. Just a half twist having pressed the red button. It comes with a carry strap and handle, so you can put it over your shoulder. Rob.

    G'day Mark,, I've been using an Oxford tank bag on my F800R. It's only 18 litres but big enough to hold the essentials. The tank bag has a clear top for maps, mobile phones, sat nav etc. A sat nav is a bit difficult to read due to reflections from the plastic.

    What I like about the Oxford is that the tank bag zips onto a 'pad' with a clear cover just like the bag. The pad also acts like a tank protector so you can leave it in place when you don't use the tank bag itself.

    Thanks to all for suggestions. I ended up getting a Ventura 8 litre. It has the suction cups to attach. I'll know what its like when I fill it up with undies, hankies and socks as well as all the fast access stuff I need for a ride.
