Hi,

Has anyone tried one of those tiny 1L Held Bumbag things. They have a magnet to put on a tank which is no good on a 950 but im sure ive seen some pics of some ADV's with them strapped to the bars.

HELD 4840 Tiny Bumbag Tank Bag

Im open to any other suggestions too...

Regards

Jon

I might just get one of those for the back. The idea was to carry something on the front that can take keys, wallet, lipstick etc and ideally have a viewable window for the phone

Lippy - LOL

Mines big enough for wets, phone, GPS, and a spare KTM640 !! :D


twas a lucky find , being the ideal shape to fit v-shaped rack.
They do do mail order though, on a special at the mo for 13E's.

Lol didn't mean to lippy. I think I will order one of those. It looks well tidy too.

Ta

**Ordered. It looks just like the KTM one but without the logo's etc.**

The mounting straps supplied are meant to go crossways round a bike seat.
Initially I just cable-tied it on, and then, when I got back to the UK, re-jigged the
supplied straps to go length-ways ie round the BBQ rack.

Polo are a great value biker gear major-chain in Germany.

No visit over there is made without me stopping by one of their 100+ branches.

Some is awful styling, but the non 'wild-west Hog' bike gear is always excellent
quality, value for money.

(the falling pound has reduced that value by 50% !! but still great gear)

How did you change the straps to go vertical instead?

I Cut the buckles supplied, and a couple of inches of strap,
off and then stitched them to the base (fat end of bag)
stitched the remaining strap ends to pointy (thin end)
of bag.

Pass the straps under the BBQ-Rack grab-rail.
pull em tight and fasten with buckles.

Now the bag is an on/off fit within 30 seconds :smokin:
