Givi XS307 Tanklock Tankbag
High quality tank bag that wont damage your paint.
Purchased this tank bag for a 2000 miles three state ride with my buddies.
Fit my 2009 Yamaha FJR well with the appropriate mounting flange. Very easy to install, has a front to back adjustment on the bottom of the bag ,so it will clear the bar switches etc.
There is a safety strap that loops around the front of the frame,in case the tank mount comes loose or isn't engaged properly.
Overall this bag was ideal for my use(extra gloves,shield,sunglasses,wallet etc.
There is an inner liner bag, sewn in that takes a little getting used to. Had one situation, where one of my gloves had worked it way to the outside of the liner & I searched for a few frantic moments until I found it.
Overall I love the way it works, ease of on & off @ the gas pump. A little overpriced, but the quality is good.

This bag fits the 2012 vstrom pretty well. I moved the mount forward one hole so the handle bars could fully lock with the bag on the bike. I guess some would like it to slope with the tank but I think the angles of the bag match the angle of the side fairings. The inner rain sleeve is a bit in the way at times, not sure how to make the most out of its functionality yet. I like the tank lock feature and the bag is easy to carry compared to a big curved bag.

After much debate and research, I chose the Givi 15L Tanklock bag. It was a rather good choice.
The bag itself is solidly manufactured. The fit and finish if each seam echoes the quality you'd expect from Givi.
The exterior waterproof bag fits snuggly and showed no flapping or ballooning even at speed. (I rolled my eyes at the day-glo green at first glance but then again, in a wet weather / low visibility situation, its just one more way to make you stand out to drivers on the road.#
The inclusion of a map / tablet pouch as part of the purchase is a welcome surprise as typically, competitors would sell it as an option. The only minor point is that it has a tendency to flap in the wind.
It isn't mentioned in the description but this bag does allow you to adjust the mount forward or back from center.
Lastly, Givi doesn't list Concours C-14 as available for use with this bag but that isn't the case. Use the BF-04 tank ring mount and you'll be fine. #For models 2010 and up that is, as the tank mounted storage bin prevents mounting of the bag.)
The only thing I could say is that you may want to consider the large bag once you realize the extra space is nice to have.

Easy On Easy Off
I have always had a tank bag. But I have gotten tired of those straps. And I have a plastic cover for a tank. And Magnets always worried me with my electronics and camera stuff.
This is not quite as big as my Nelson Rigs was. But still big enough.
And easy on easy off is great.
I am happy with this purchase.

Great purchase for my bike.
I put this bag on a 2015 Yamaha FJR 1300. For my purposes it is the perfect size and all the features I could want. The tank-lock system is flawless in it's design and makes this the most convenient bag to use. I would not hesitate to buy it again.

Overall product is very nice. It has 1 problem the pocket for 10" tablet is to small it covered part of the search bar at top and wouldn't close properly.

Tanklock is Awesome, Bag Durability is Questionable.
GIVI sent this bag under warranty to replace my discontinued T489, which had the main zipper blow-out within 2 years, so I was very excited and happy with GIVI for honoring their warranty (although they have a fairly involved warranty process which took several weeks for a final determination and replacement). I've now had the XS307 for 10 months, and the map pocket clear window literally shattered one day when I went to open the main flap. Needless to say, a shattered map pocket is no good when caught in any rain, so I'm back to GIVI with a second warranty request. Hopefully they'll again honor my request, but between this, and the fact that I'm already seeing zipper fatigue, I just don't see this bag as having the required durability, especially for the price, for routine use, therefore, I would not recommend this bag, unless you plan to only use it for the occasional weekend ride, and take it off your bike every time you stop/park/leave the bike. This is a piece of gear which will be exposed to the elements for extended periods, and which will be routinely opened/closed, yet I don't feel GIVI has designed this bag with these considerations in mind, which is unfortunate.

Great addition to my Suzuki DL650
Purchased the Givi XS307 and the matching tank ring for my Suzuki DL650A VStrom. The bag is just the right size, and does not interfere with seeing the gauges on my bike.
The tank ring took a few minutes to install, and does not stick up very far. No problem refueling the tank with the ring installed.
The bag is the perfect size for storing items for quick access. Even fully loaded, the bag does not touch the tank. I like the tank ring mount, as it will not scratch my bike, and I won't have to be concerned about magnets erasing my credit cards if stored in the bag. No need to dismount the bike to get to items in the bag.
