The Givi TankLock system for tank bags promotes the elimination of all kinds of straps, or magnetic limpets, previously used to fasten the bag to the bike. Thanks to a small ring that is installed on the tank cap, incorporated with the unique structure of the base of the bag, the bag can now be attached by simply aligning it to the ring and pressing lightly until you hear the classic "click."
Equally easy is the removal of the bag; to release it you can just pull the red lever located in the base. The mounting rings are sold separately and vary by the fuel cap type, and you need to check the compatibility list to verify which ring is for use with your model of motorcycle.
Excellent Bag and Outstanding Craftsmanship!
I've owned this bag for about a month now and I must say the best feature it has is the tank lock system. You never have to worry that going through a turn, highway speeds or high winds will throw your bag off the bike.
I own a 2012 GSX-R750 and the main reason I purchased the bag was for the tank lock since part of the tank is plastic and it works phenomenal.
Side Pockets: Small, small, small, they will hold sunglasses and that’s it. I use them to store the rain cover and carrying strap as those are items I may not use often, but they are still convenient to get to.
Main Compartment: My Shoei RF-1200 barely fits with the bag expanded (stress on the zippers), but I never intended to carry a helmet or store one in it. I have enough room for my lunch, rain suit, sunglasses and extra gloves (I'll post some pictures). You could easily use this bag for weekend jaunts as long as you don't pack like a pre-Madonna. The extra 2 inches on the expansion is actually a ton of extra room.
Lock System: Easy on and off operation. Someone posted that it was hard to use, but I've had zero issues with or without gloves (even in my winter gloves). Install of the tank ring was easy as could be three bolts and then all you do is adjust the locking mechanism on the bottom of the bag for where you want it to sit on the bike. They screws that hold the mechanism on may seem weak, but I think they suit the purpose and you shouldn't ever have an issue with them.
Zippers: Everyone on every post is like YKK Zippers blah, blah, blah.... The zippers function easily they are not YKK and I have had no problems with them. Zippers are zippers and they can all fail just as easy as the next. They have a small port that overlaps on each one so you could put a travel lock on your bag if you felt the need to.
Map Pocket: This pocket is great it is large enough for my iPhone and garage door opener and a whole lot more if you have any notion to put a map in it then resize print and you're good to go. I never print maps always the directions so it will function nicely when I use it.
iPad/Map Attachment: The bag comes with a sleeve that will hold and I pad and straps on the bag once it's closed up I've never used it but would be great if you needed to fold up a large road map and use that for directions. If you have your iPad playing a movie or using a GPS function I think I'd call you an idiot for using it. It's handy when you need it and that was why they provided it.
Never had it in inclement weather, but it has and internal dry bag and a bag cover so I'm sure it would be fine and the zippers all have rain guards. I read on another smaller Givi bag review the guy had his in a downpour and nothing got wet and he didn't even use the internal bag or the exterior cover.
Overall a great bag I wish it wasn't as pricey as it was but it is excellent for people who don't trust magnetic tank bags and once you own the ring you can use Givi's other bags on your bike also if you wanted.
Revzilla is also an excellent company and when I called the customer service was extremely polite, professional and answered every question I had. They spoke English also which was a breath of fresh air. I'll use them with all my bike gear purchases from now on.

Tanklock bag - the good an the bad.
The most appealing feature of this bag is the Tanklock mechanism. Installing the ring on my Triumph Tiger 800 tank was easy. The latch mechanism on the bag snaps on easily and securely. Removal can be a little more difficult as the latch mechanism is difficult to find underneath, especially with gloves on. However, that makes it more difficult for anyone trying to steal it.
The small side pockets are very small and won't hold much more than a pair of sunglasses or something of similar size.
Inside there is a lower compartment with a drawstring to separate long term storage stuff from stuff you want quick access to. I store my lightweight rain suit underneath and all my electronics above.
The cable port does not open to the inside of the main compartment. It ports only to the tablet/map pocket up top. However, if you wanted to run a cable to the main compartment it can be done by running it through the cable port, into the tablet pocket and out through the internal access to the tablet/map pocket.
The comparable product would be the tank lock bags from Bags Connection, which are probably a better product, but at almost twice the price it makes this bag a pretty good deal.

Randy S asked:I just got this and I've found a strap on the handlebar side that isn't mentioned in the documentation or in any of the descriptions or images I can find of the bag. It's not the grab handle and it's not the removable shoulder strap that both attach at the rider side of the bag.
Does anyone else know whether or not this is useful? If not, I'm thinking I should just cut it off since it looks like it's going to blow around and get in the way or scratch the tank.
Steven M:It is a safety strap in case the bag disengages from the lock system during your ride. This has never happened to me in my use of the bag. You can either use, cut it off or tie it back on itself.Jun 18, 2014
Thank you for the response, that makes sense.
I was hoping it wasn't something like that. I mean what's the point of a tank lock bag if you have to strap it on too? Oh well, I'll bet Givi's lawyers couldn't let it out the door with out the extra safety feature.
Stillman Y:Randy that strap goes around the handlebars incase of some type of failure with the lock ring! Use it as a safety measure just get it set length wise and the use the elastic piece to tidy up the loose ends.Jun 18, 2014
Andy D:Serves two purposes, when carrying the bag off the bike with the shoulder strap the strap allows you to strap the bag to your leg to keep it from bouncing around. Second it can be used as a safety strap when the bag is mounted on the bike. To be honest I cut mine off as Randy suggested.
Jesus Adrian P:Hi, I think it should be used to strap around your frame and below your handlebar. That's how I use it on my GSXR. It's useful to make sure it doesn't fall down when you charge gas and I guess it adds security if for whatever reason, your tanklock fails while riding.
Yeah, I'm going to try tying it up for a little while as Steven suggested and see if that works before cutting it. Otherwise, this bag is exactly what I wanted and is riding great on my first couple of outings with it.

Hey Guilermo. I just got back from a weekend tour where I was testing my overall load out. I wound up cutting the strap off since my zip tie job to secure it was starting to look like it would come loose.
Now I just double check every time I use the tank lock to make sure it is secure. Works great so far!

Steve G:I measure the interior as being ~12.5" x ~10.5". That's without trying to gain any additional room by pushing the sides outward. I don't have a size 12 shoe so can't answer that part of the question, but that would be variable anyway. Hiking boots will take up more volume than athletic shoes.
troy w:Not sure about Australia but my size 12 wide nukes fit in the bag. Have not had any trouble with this bag at all. Can't say enough about the ease of removal and installation, especially at the pump.Jul 15, 2014
A shopper asked:I'm looking for a tank bag for my 1999 Triumph Speed Triple. I would like some form of tank lock bag, with no magnet or straps. Can you tell me if this is compatible or point me in the right direction to one which is?Apr 21, 2014
A shopper asked:Can an Arai full face helmet fit into this bag? Even if it means a tight fit which require me to clear everything out to carry the helmet only. I plan to use this to carry my passenger's helmet while I am riding to pick him/her up, therefore I only need to fit the helmet in and carry nothing else. It would be great if it can since I've already own a Givi TankLock bag.Apr 16, 2014
