Bags Connection Tank Bags?? on the 919?? or others?? pics wanted

anyone tried these tank bags?? expecially on the 919?? any pics mounted on the various models?? also these are imporable thru twistedthrottle

I like the way the lock on, and the bottoms are solid so it keeps them off your tank... I'm looking at the smallest one possible just for a camera and stuff. I sat one of another company on the bike today and my bars hit it when i turend all way.. but this company makes some smaller.. anyone ever use these?? any comments??

these are a couple of the smaller ones I'm looking at, but dont really know how well they will fit and look on the 919..

Sorry, no pics handy and it was never on the 919. It's very well made, the bottom is solid, and it makes no contact with the tank in any way.

I have fastrax by Dowco for the tailpack

and an old Manta Joe Rocket for the tank bag. Works well though I would do something different for the tank bag if on a serious trip.

Word to the wise Always watch the magnets no matter the manufacturer. You put the bag down on your workbench and the metal filings from last years centerstand modification end up embedded in your tank.

thanks but I'm really looking at the kind that lock into the gas cap. .they have a ring you install on your gas cap, then the bag quick locks on it.. holding it above the tank a 1/2 inch or so, thus it never touches your tank.. but just looking for one that is small and doesnt go over or past the lines on the 919 tank or get too wide so that the bars hit it.. hard to guess at it and order w/o actually seeing it on the bike.

I had the Engage sport one, used on my 919 and my 954, right now I cant find any pics of it on the 919, but it worked very well.

I have the Daypack II. The bag and connectors are of good quality. I went with this design because I was concerned with the durability of the matte paint. The bag does not touch the tank and is held firmly by the connection rings.
