Tank Bag

I have an older tank bag and a new SWMotech bag. Both don't look very good IMHO, perched on top of the tank, Frankly, I think those bags detract from the nice lines of the r11s. What bags do you think look decent?

I like the look of the Wunderlich Sport bag made for the s1000r.



Anyone know if this bag would fit well on the r11s? Seems like it would.

NO tank bag "looks good". But you really need something on the R11S. I had a Cortec but the mounting ring on the gas cap was terrible and way too tall. Found a new Givi XS307 quick mount and bag on fleabay for half price and it's OK. But not pretty. It detaches and mounts in a blink. Has to on a R11S; no fuel range.

I found this pillion bag on amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XX1HCH4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It came in several days ago. Seems very small but it will be ok for a rainsuit. I have the BMW side cases too but don't need them all the time. Was thinking about a backpack as supplemental storage. Dunno.

Let us know what you come up with, please.

The Multivario OEM bag looks the best.

The pillion bag is looking like the best way to go to carry a few things on short rides. It makes the seat look a bit like some cafe seats, which helps retain the good lines of the bike.

I've seen these and wondered how they would look on an R11S. If you get a chance post a picture if you can, I'd like to see how it looks. I ride with a old Ogio no drag back pack that I have had since they first came out. I like it because it has what I need in it no mater which bike I take out. I would like some more space on the BMW though with out having to put the bags on.

Looking forward to pictures!

Iím biased but I think the giant loop tank bag looks good enough to keep on all the time on the r11s

Used Bagster for years same bag different cover,never had anywhere near the aerodynamic hassles so many suffer with filling the hole in behind the screen.

I like this one that doesn't stick up so far. If it is expandable it may be just right.
