Design of this bag gives far greater safety, and therefore peace of mind, over any other roll type bag on the market, as it sits, pannier style, either side of the bike.
Means you don't have to worry about it sliding sideways, and then into your back wheel, without you noticing as you ride along.

Wow!
70 ltrs??? That's SOME bag you have there.
I usually manage with 25 ltrs for about 10-14 days.
That excludes camping gear though.
These days, I tend not to camp.
I like a comfy bed...lol

I didn't camp on my Spanish trip.

Nice hotels throughout.

Took far too much luggage and didn't wear most of what I took.
I guess the problem with a large bag is that you just end up filling it.

The size of the bag did get commented on a few times when we pulled up somewhere and met other British bikers.

Such a great fit on the bike, as you can see, and easily removed / put back on in fewer than 10 seconds.

so you could fit an average human in there?
You could fit an awful lot of things in there.

Greatest thing about the bag is that it enables me to use the NSC as a serious tourer.

I get to have the bike I want and still be able to enjoy long distance holidays on it, despite it not being a tourer or adventure bike.

It is quite literally my back yard. I ride the loop Mount Hamilton, Mines Road, Livermore, San Jose regularly. How far away do you live?
aaah, Mount Hamilton. if you like it tight and narrow, this is your road! no high speed frikkin sweepers here! despite living 1600 kms (one thousand miles) away, I've ridden that wonderful road more than a couple times, including once with the local master, the aforesaid Monsieur BigOne. ( that time wasn't so good - plenty of fog up high...) but if road envy is allowed ( and it is) I ENVY BigOne over his placement of habitation!

The fog certainly made it interesting :cool:

And I think fortuitous is the appropriate word for my choice of location :)

When are you coming back?

This says for CBR1000RR. It shows the filler cap for CBR1000RR.

The filler cap on my CBR1000RR, the 1st gen CB1000R and my CB1000F all have 7 screw holes.

My 2nd gen CB1000R has 5 screw holes. The cap is a different size and the holes are different spacing between 2008-2017 model and 2018 model.

So I don't understand how this fits your bike. I have 2 and they don't fit the 2018 model.

Yeah that's why I asked, because it doesn't look like that mount from where the bag is sitting. And the picture posted is definitely not BF38

I tried the BF38 but it looked bad. I searched the CB1000R NSC part list for the the part number of the filler cap then found that the new CB650 and CBR1000RR had the same part number for the filler cap. Givi website said the BF30 fits those bikes so that's what I got and as the photo shows if fits fine. The BF30 kit comes with two sets of bolts for the 650 and 1000, can't remember which I used. Hope that helps.
