The CROSS’R tank bag from Bagster is compact so that it doesn’t impact your position while riding. It’s expandable and can contain up to 25 litres to allow you to carry enough spare kit and essential items. Furthermore, this tank bag is guaranteed not to damage your paintwork. It’s been designed specifically to be fitted on the Bagster tank cover or the universal fitter. The tank bag can be easily fitted on the tank cover in just a few seconds via four anchor points. It can then be fixed securely and closely against the tank by pulling the straps so that it won’t move no matter what the speed. It’s also versatile and can be fitted on a wide range of bikes including sports, roadsters and trails.
I bought the tank bag as my bike came with a pre-existing Baglux tank cover (Triumph Tiger 885i), so I had to buy something that fitted that make.
The bag was bought of Twisty Ride[s] website, and firstly I found their help and advice great.
On arrival, I noticed how sturdy the bag was - the thing looks like it'll outlast the bike. A complete storm cover also comes as standard, as well as a clear map pocket on the top. The tank bag is really room, with two handy side pockets which I use for insurance / bike documents, as well as keys and mobile phone.
The bag itself has a two stage system so it is expandable, and at it's full height (which I have never had to use) looks like it could accommodate an awful lot of kit.
Even in it's lower setting, it is very roomy and comes with detachable straps so once parked up, you can sling it over your shoulder and use as a rucsac.
Riding with the bag on, it really doesn't interfere with the riding position or riding itself - you are aware it's there, but not overly so. A really useful piece of kit that I'd recommend.
