    Bags Connection "City" tank bag question

    I'm looking for a tank bag that I can mount to my BMW R1200RT tank bag frame and I like the Bags Connection "City" tank bag. Has anyone done this? Is it an easy mount?

    I put a Bags Connection tank bag on my 1100RS. It wasn't the "City" bag, but the mounting is the same. It took about 1/2 hour to install. (I took my time)

    The only tricky part, is locating the mount on the bottom of the tank bag.

    I ended up going with a Touratech flat tank bag. It was a reasonably simple procedure to mount it to the frame of my RT tank bag.

    I have one on my Vstrom, great bag, very happy with it after umpteen bags that preceded it. I've got at least 50k miles on it.

    I am still in search of one for my 2004 R1150RT, which does not have fixed "mounts" for a bag. I used one that was excellent on loan from my mechanic, but it was no longer available for purchase. Any suggestions appreciated.
