Givi XS307 Tanklock, Forma Terra Boots

Recommended Posts

GiviXS307 Tanklock: $75 shipped US

The Givi XS307 Tanklock sounds like everything you want in a tank bag, but it's not. If you are used to the quality of their cases and racks, prepare to be disappointed. It fits stuff, and it snaps on and off the included FJ-09 specific tank ring, but that's about it. I am also including the generic tank ring which DOES NOT work with the FJ-09, the rain cover, the rain cover holder, the shoulder strap, and Navigator/Tablet sleeve. The rain cover does work great, and the other stuff has been sitting around for most of the twoish years I've had the bag. The tank ring makes filling up a pain with California style gas pumps. And it looks dumb when the bag isn't on it. The bag used to have a strap as a back-up retention if the ring failed, but I cut it off, because why would you want your tank bag swinging around your bike on the interstate? I left enough strap you could sew D rings on if you wanted. The original bag I had waranteed before ever using it; the baseplate was mounted to the bag 15 degrees off. The second bag had all of the zipper pulls break within six months. I put parachord on the main ones, and it sucks.

 If you want a similar quality tank bag, you can spend 50 bucks on a magnetic one from a brand nobody has heard of. If you really really want a Givi though, and you don't want to spend 150 bucks for it, I will send you mine for 75.

Forma Terra Boots, Size EUR 45: $100 Shipped US

I was much happier with these. These have maybe a bit over 10k miles of use. I mostly used them when I had my Tiger, but have used them for a few trips on my FJ. They worked much better with the Tiger adventure style footpegs than the FJ street style. Otherwise I'd keep them for multiday trips. They're beefy, but pretty comfortable, even for 12 hour days. Completely waterproof as well. The only time my feet got wet in these was riding through standing water OVER the FJ pegs, that shot up the cuff of my water proof pants, and then drained back down into the boots. Good times, good boots. If you use adv style boots, or have a more ADV style bike, I highly recommend these. Sorry, I don't know where the metal to guards ended up, but the screws are a bit worn down anyway. Also some wear on the.. vinyl? on the top of the cuff. The... nylon? underneath is fine.
