That's what I'm using too. Mine has the Givi-S111 Power Hub Kit inside so I can keep my phone and Sena headset module charged. I like that the tank bag just locks onto the tank locking ring and the bag doesn't rest on the tank's paint.

Thanks for some reason I thought that there was a cell phone mounted over the main instrument panel. I must have been on something at the time!

Here is a pic of my givi installed. It's great that you don't have to undo the tank straps every time you take it off.

I have no use for a tank bag.. but if one were to become essential for me then I would definitely go for either the GIVI or SW-Motech systems that use the bolt-on fuel cap ring.

no straps. whats not to like?

They can fall off, or at least my Givi tank bag did - due to its very weak springs. I'd much rather trust straps - and when I'm not using the bag, there's no ugly tank ring spoiling the beautiful lines of my tank.

Big GIVI tank lock bag does have a stupid front strap. Not sure what it's function is other than to frustrate the owner. I've been tempted to cut my strap off.

Wait till the tank connector comes loose at 60k on a trail and the bag flies off. I have mine tied around the bars and also it's useful to sling over your shoulder when carrying.

I won't be on a trail with my AT. I have a real dirt bike for that type duty.
