    Tank Bag

    Hello everyone and Merry Christmas, I just bought a new 2013 GS 1200 Adventure and I had most of the farkles that I wanted added on when I bought it from Gateway BMW, the only thing I didnt get was a good tank bag Im looking for one I can use for extensive traveling on long trips! I would like to hear some pros and cons of your tank bags, make, size, durability, pictures, and what not so I can decide on what to get thanks and again I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas back at you.

    Check out the Wolfman line of tank bags. I never have heard anything bad about their tank bags. Ever. They have other things that a GS rider might find a need for.

    Have a safe riding year for 2013.

    WolfMan

    Plus 1 on the Wolf Man bags. They seem to be made for the Tall Slanted tanks of the Adventure bikes. I used the big one on a V-Strom for a turn to Alaska and back.

    On my bike I use the BMW tank bag, because it needs no cover to handle rain, it is waterproof. By the time you cover any other tank bag in a sudden downpour, your bag and its enclosures are soaked in another bag.

    GS Tankbags MUST be waterproof - Wolfman bags are excellent and waterproof as advertised.
