Tri­umph 10-litre Wax Cot­ton tankbag £155

Motorcycle News (UK) - - MCN Garage -

Tester Ped Baker Time tested Two months/250 miles What’s good? This is a very classy piece of lug­gage. From the thick leather top flap to the wax cot­ton fab­ric around the sides it oozes style and qual­ity. Stiff­ened sides and base re­tain the bags tank-hug­ging shape and a cut­away neatly fits around my Tri­umph Street Twin long-term test bike’s off­set fuel cap (the bag also fits the 2016 T120 Bon­neville range). At 10 litres it’s the per­fect size for a day trip and will eas­ily swal­low the es­sen­tials plus water­proof overtrousers. The front se­cur­ing strap boasts a mag­net to stop it fly­ing about on the tank when not in use and the two rear straps fold away un­der the seat. It will with­stand light rain but an op­tional water­proof cover (£15) is avail­able. What’s not? The plas­tic buck­les and ny­lon se­cur­ing straps are a bit or­di­nary so let the side down a lit­tle. Con­tact www.tri­umph­mo­tor­cy­cles.co.uk Qual­ity rat­ing ★★★★★ Value rat­ing ★★★★
