Look what I got for $40. A Genuine BMW tank bag.

Over in the ADV forums a gentleman from the Blue Mountains here in NSW as selling this original BMW tank bag. It has had all the leather straps replaced. It has the original rain cover. He had had it for a number of years and had not used it.

For $40 how could I say no. So through emails we arranged that I would pick it up. It is the middle of winter here and I had to ride up into the Blue Mountains to collect it at 7am. I was that keen to get this tank bag.

Only one slight problem and this is not the fault of the bag or the seller. The strap that has a hole to go over the end of the top frame rail will not stay on. Even with the tool box in position. I assume this is because my tank is bigger than the one the tank bag had been made for? No great drama I have used the straps off my Oxford Tank Bag to hold this leather strap in place. The Oxford Tank Bag was too big and it fouled the handle bar switches.
