    Looking for info from riders on tank bags that fit & work on the Twin.

    I love almost everything about my Giant Loop Fandango tank bag, with the exceptions being the price and maybe the attaching zippers, though I am getting used to the zippers.

    I used to have a Endurostan tank bag on my KTM 1190, but it was a huge on and the bars on the AT hit it. They do make a smaller one and I would have gone with that, if I didn’t receive a generous gift card from Rocky Mountain ATV for Christmas.

    My wife did go with the smaller Endurostan and really likes it.

    Both Giant Loop and Endurostan are rugged and waterproof.

    I have the Honda bag but it's very small and surprisingly fiddly to get the clips in place. It comes with a rain cover but I really don't understand why bag manufacturers cant make their bags waterproof if even cheap jackets can be.

    They can. The Endurostan definitely is. I can vouch for that after a trip riding for days in all day rain.

    The Giant Loop doesn’t claim to be, so they include an interior waterproof gear bag. But I would guess it to be extremely water resistant even without the bag. I haven’t used the bag yet and everything has stayed dry.

    I had a Wolfman prior to that. Absolutely not waterproof without the cover

    I recently upgraded from the small OEM Honda tank bag to the Givi XS320. The Givi has a water resistant liner and comes with a rain cover.

    Planning on using the Honda bag for day to day riding the the larger Givi when going on trips.
