Ive got one along with the electric kit for it! Its a good quality build, but the base (inside) could be a little softer. Nothing an old tea towel didnt fix though!

If you can wait when i get home in the morning ill take a few happy snaps.

edit: Saying build quality isnt fair to the bag - its a sturdy strong bag, its just that the base inside is hard plastic and raised in the middle for the tankring, to nestle underneath. Handy to put a little padding in there if theres something fragile in the bag, thats more of a fair thing for me to say!

Dude thanks for the heads up! I've had a tank bag marked in the Twisted Throttle catalog but just haven't pulled the trigger. This sale is too good to pass up.

You need to get a tank ring (#6 for triumph) too. Have fun attaching it the bolts are all messed up sizes haha.

You also need to drill into the bag to put the bolts through it to fix to the topring for the bag, quite easy it comes with a template and the necessary bolts. For me though the bolts for the top ring into the bag two were too short, conveniently i had 2 spare longer suitable screws left over from another project .

As i said ill take a few shots of it fitted to the bike when i get home. I got an electric set but ive also got a non electric set - though it isnt fitted.
One thing about the electric set, it really needs spraypainting as it sticks out badly :P.

The BC sports engage is the bag of choice for the majority of sprint owners inc me.
don`t forget also you can get an Ortlieb style liner bag for these too

Just got off the phone with Twisted Throttle!!!!!!!

If you have an older quick-release tank bag and upper & lower rings and want to add a second bag or second motorcycle to your Bags-Connection QR system. You must make your order by phone only!!! This is done to ensure that you order the old style QR rings so you can swap your new bag between motorcycles!!!!!!!!!!!
