I don't think so, haven't seen anything close so far, no surprise considering the very specific shape of the tank

finding a bag may not be too difficult, the real question will be how to fix it on the tank (I guess magnets will not work)

Hmmm may have a closer look at the Triumph bag, a bit pricey though especially when I have one sitting redundant in the garage after only 2 tours

I got one and must tell you that despite a very hefty price it is far less practical than the old traditional Bagster tank bags, partly due to its very specific shape that takes away a lot of storing space, the opening lid does not stand in  the upright position and keeps falling down on you while you load the bag: only solution is to unstrap the lid from the body of the bag  :151:

you may want to call the Bagster distributor in the UK and ask if anything is coming, at least before your July trip?
