I have a Nelson rigg Trails End that straps to the frame. It is the best piece of gear I have purchased for any bike I have ever owned. It looks great, it is about 90 dollars, holds 16 liters, and is fairly water resistant. It comes with a rain cover that makes it waterproof.
On a trip I fit my wallet, spare visor, spare winter gloves, jacket, helmet lock, and motorcycle jump starter in it when expanded. It doesn't get in my field of view (unnoticeable while riding) and comes off the bike with four abs quick buckles. The straps stay on the bike, but I just leave it attached. When fuelling I undo the tree buckles and lean the bag back for access to the tank.
It also looks pretty cool on the bike. I'll get better pictures when I get my bike back from the suspension shop. Ask questions if you think of any.
My lightly used 2016 came with a Touratech expandable tankbag, which I hate (for sale in the For Sale thread). For my part, it was too big. I now use a cheap-o Joe Rocket Manta, which is just big enough for few essentials, and I love it.
I use a MotoCentric Mototrek 7 Tank Bag (magnetic) which I bought for my ST1300 and now use on my Africa Twin. It was very cheap, only 7 litres but that is plenty for small items including a power bank that I want to charge from the bikes USB ports. Being small makes it easier to not be in the way, which is pretty important.
I have a Giant Loop Fandango Pro. The drypod keeps things dry but the bag leaks. Both the bag and base move around a lot and scuff **** out of the tank with the 'trucker tarp' base. The zippers attaching the base to the bag are problematic; hard to start and sometimes open up when zipped.
I've a Wolfman bag on my KTM and find it much more user friendly. Had it on my DR before that and it never scuffed the paint - the Wolfman base is sticky and softer.
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.
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.
So my bike is a paper weight now. I went into the bank and came out and it wouldn't go into drive. I turned it on and off a few times and got it into drive and got home and now I started it in the garage and it won't go into anything. There's just a little line that flashes ware the gear...

I’m sure this has been covered a thousand times but I’m new to this forum and to the bike. Just picked up a ‘new’ 2019 ATAS and am taken back at how much my helmet shakes on it. It is the AS so it has a taller windshield stock (I’m 6’2”.] So do I get a taller windshield? The plastic piece that...
Hope you get a good laugh on this one. Laughing is good for us. :)
When I bought the bike it was missing the owner's manual, so I picked one up from Helm, but it didn't come with the Honda bag.
So when I was online ordering other parts, I noticed the OEM bag was available for the cheap...
