Tank bag wise, i use the Givi ST 603 tank lock. Super easy on and off, expandible, waterproof, durable, has a place for the phone. I also bought the givi power supply and the USB port which sits in the bag and can charge stuff on the go.

Another one here with a Givi but mine is the 605 which despite being a higher number is a lower capacity.

Just bought the power cables (S111 and S110) from Motocard for under £50 which was the cheapest I had seen them by quite some margin.

Any body fixed hard paniers with brackets? Does it effect the rear turn signals on the tail tidy?
Ta very much

Which ones are these?
I've been looking and trying to fit other makes on the bike but they always hinder the indicatiors on the tail tidy.
This one look like it fits perfect.
Thanks

Just fitted a ventura kit. Had to put the original fender back on. On the R&G tail tidy it fouled the indicators and I couldn’t fit the bottom bracket. Also will keep the bag clean. Happy with this setup. If I don’t use it I fit the grab handle. IMG_5943.jpg IMG_5946.jpg

Got the same kit. It works well. And when I’m on my own I swivel the bag around and have it over the rear seat.
It helps to keep the front wheel down during those quick getaways

I also went for the Ventura setup. Have not tested it on the road yet, only tried to mount it in the workshop. So far I'm happy with the system.

I use a company over here that specialise in offshore baggage but now do motorbike stuff as they have a great R&D department that actually listen to what people want.

Not sure what the postage would be over the pond.
I use this on the bike and for work and never had any bother at all with them. Also a fraction of the price of other with the same design.

I assume you need some pannier racks installed first to make sure the bags stay where they belong? What do you use, how to you fix them to the bike?

Loving the pricing, especially after buying Kriega bags a long time back....might get one of their rucksacks to start with

Where are the indicators/turn signals? Can't see any on the rear?

I fabricated a set of brackets using Shads Universal P Bracket. My signals have been removed since I run an integrated taillight. My wifes bike has the stock signals in place though.

Good to see some bikes set up for touring here . I don’t want to ride a full time tourer but was concerned the GSX-S1000 f wasn’t going to be easy to set up for trips , it seems I was wrong . I’ve just ordered the Suzuki clip on tank bag which is on offer currently . I think it’s the neatest easiest to use tank bag I’ve ever seen . It doesn’t extend as much as some others. I tend to ride with a tankbag all the time .
I’ve got some Krieger bags for the rear and oxford sports throw overs which Iam sure will do the job along with a big roll bag on the rear seat for camping trips , at least the exhaust is well out of the way . I’ll post some pics when I get it set up and find out how to post pics ��

I've got the Suzi tank bag (SW-Motech) too. I really like the way it attaches/detaches. It's a very clean setup.

I've got a Kriega US-30, fits enough stuff for several days of touring, comes on and off easy, and doesn't leave any racks on the bike. You can also extend the capacity by attaching smaller kriega bags to it.

Has anyone mounted a topcase plate on the pillion seat. It works a treat on my B king as I only ride solo.
