I installed the Givi XS320.

Very nice fit.

I like the top map case, as I still like paper maps.

I switched out to slightly longer fuel cap ring bolts because I am also have the Bagster tank cover fitting under the ring.

Hi Hemdawg, do you think the Givi tank bag is big enough to fit a small laptop in?.

Hi.

I have also been looking for a tank bag, but so far what I can find interferes with the handlebar in a tight turn. Are you also finding that?

The Givi XS320 tank bag allows full handlebar rotation.

You could very comfortably fit a 10" x 8"(25cm x 20cm) laptop in the XS320, and a bigger laptop, say 12" x 10" (30cm x 25cm), if you unzipped the extension on the bag (making the bag a couple inches taller).

A bigger laptop would fit, with a little prodding.

Hi Hemdawg.
Thanks for the info. I contacted the local TT dealer to see what he has available. There seems to be 2 options available. "Ambato Pure" and "Ambato Exp".

Price comparison would put the XS320 in the same bracket as the TT "Ambato Pure" but from a feature perspective it looks like the XS320 compares quite well to the TT "Ambato Exp". With our currency and duties, the TT "Ambato Exp" is just about double the price of the XS320. That sort of puts things into another perspective and looks like the XS320 give me more "bang for my buck".

I contacted a dealer who has a XS320 in stock, and I will collect it during the lunch break.

Enduristan 4a (Forum members posts other model) - but this one seems to fit the AT tank.

I have the Givi tank bag made for the Africa Twin. Like the quick disconnect, two separate map pockets, and perfect fit that does not touch the tank.



I do like the Tour Tech tank bag also.
