    Here's some photos to show you the bag, the mounting clips and attachment points. BMW also includes an expandable bag that zips on to the tank bag if it were needed. Personally, I've never needed or wanted to use that, especially given that I have more than ample room with my hard locking bags. When I ride solo on long trips, if I need extra room, I use a tail pack that sits on the passenger seat which attaches with bungie cords to the mounting points/tethers on my locking saddle bags. Hope this information helps you in making a decision on whether to buy a BMW bag or not.

    Ride safe.

    Sorry about the photo orientation. For some reason these photos rotated orientation after uploading/attaching them. I looked for a utility on the forum to edit, rotate, etc the pics but couldn't find one. I took several photos for you, but as you probably know you can only upload 3 at a time. Started becoming tedious, so if you'd like me to email them more to you, please send me an IM and I will be happy to email them to you this weekend.

    Hope you found this helpful.

    After searching for two years, I finally found the BMW tank bag pictured in this thread. I found it on ebay from a dealer in the UK. I really like the way it fits on the bike, but I'm having trouble figuring out all the different configurations that you can use. I just installed it today so I'm sure I'll figure it out. A question for those that have this bag is can I use the expanded mode and still have the map pocket on top? I probably won't use the expansion mode because it sits a little tall for me. I'm just curious. Anyway, it's a beautiful system and the fitment is elegant. I'm happy with my find!

    I have a LindaT's custom tank bag on my RT

    You might want to ask her if she's made one for your bike. She does a lot of work for the long Distance community.

    You can use it with the map pocket on top. I've used the expansion section but don't anymore for the reason you mentioned. I found that it obstructed my view of my turn signals on the bottom of my dash so much to the delight/annoyance of my riding partners, I could ride for miles with my signal flashing. Oh well lesson learned, but it has been a great tankbag. When I bought my RS it came completely decked out including the tankbag.
