And, I think it is reasonably priced.


The smaller size Givi bag has not been an issue with the horn on my RTW

Ok, New question?

I went with the Givi Tank lock bag. Love it, works perfect.

My question is , How many of you have removed the safety strap?......if make a real hassle to remove the bag and take inside.

I'm thinking hard about removing it.

I converted mine to use one of those spring loaded carabiner clips. Takes all the hassle out of having a tether.
