What are your reasons for choosing TT, Honda are meant to be producing some, I believe. IMO TT gear is v expensive, late on delivery, poor on service, ie no comms and is not always constructed to the quality they bum it up to be. In my experience.

No reason yet for choosing TT, I had a givi bag for my Crosstourer which I couldn't fault. Got until July before I need one

My local TT guys had the small version of the bag, I did a spot fit and it fits well. The scratch proof area fits nicely. And it doesn't interfere with the seat.
I didn't buy it because it was too small. Waiting for the large one which hopefully will be next week.
TT started shipping "some" stuff to dealers to display etc. and the guys I'm dealing with are trying really hard to get me my order of bars and rear plate. So much so that they will be giving me their shop unit to use as I need them for a tour next week. They only have one more set of everything to arrive the week after.

Also, on that note - I have installed the TT side stand base extension. I must say, very disappointed, the mounting was bent and the bracket became loose after only a week. Took it back to them and they said it'll be replaced and he reported it to TT on the phone right away saying bad quality issue. Hopefully the second set will be better.

Thanks for the warning on the side stand extension - I was just about to get one. Or rather, as it's TT, I was about to order and then wait.

I live down a gravelled road and occasionally park up rather than drive straight in to the garage - there's occasionally a slight heart in the mouth moment when the side stand disappears down a bit. Extensions have always helped - as have those plastic plates that keep getting lost.

I installed my old Touratech tank bag with the new Africa Twin attachment.

I think this version is bigger but it's ok on-road and off-road

I'm going to fit my Givi 307 with a quick release ive gone down dealers and put it on there as my bike is due in next week as I understand Givi has not bought one out for the AT BUT the petrol cap is the same as the CB500 & crosstourer so feeling confident that one of them will fit

Out of interest, what kind of auxiliary lights are they?
