Title: Handlebar bag that fits the 2Gen S10..?
Post by: Don T on January 04, 2017, 04:28:57 pm
I have thought about getting a handlebar bag for my 2Gen S10.

This bag from Wunderlich should fit: http://www.wunderlich.de/shop/en/barbagevo-handlebar-bag-29870-000-1.html (http://www.wunderlich.de/shop/en/barbagevo-handlebar-bag-29870-000-1.html)
I like the size of it and that it has a waterproof cable grommet which will allow me to charge stuff inside the bag while riding.

Have anyone tried this bag on a 2Gen S10 or are there other similar bags you can recommend for the bike?

Never came across this BMW bag before and seems like a good idea for rider accessible storage.

I had some thoughts of using bicycle front handle bar bags. They are inexpensive. On line sites sells them. Aliexpress.com for example.

Looks and sounds like a very nice bag but I wonder how well it will fit Tenere handlebars.

That's actually really cool, never thought about a bag like that. Might have to do some Google searching ☺️

Rumbux offers a handlebar bag for the Super Tenere as well.  LINK (http://www.rumbux.co.za/yamaha%20product%20pages/xt1200zhandlebarbag.html)

I can order these, but it has to be part of my normal shipments or shipping costs are crazy.  I can't match their local pricing in South Africa, but can sell them for $85 US.  PM if you're interested or have questions.

I've been very pleased with the quality of the soft products I've been getting from Rumbux for the last 5 years or so.

I've seen other similar handlebar bags that was listed to fit both the GS1200 and the S10 (and several other bikes with double-butted handlebars). This leads me to believe that this one will fit the S10 as well..?

The main reason that I started to look into this option is, that I need a place to charge "stuff" while riding and don't want a tankbag.
On my previous bike I had a 12.000 mAh powerbank under the seat that was charging while riding - no room for that solution on the S10.

I can't see from the link whether it's for 22mm or double-butted handlebars (1st or 2nd gen S10)..?

Had a look at that one as well, but as I plan on using it primarily as a place for charging electronic devises, I would prefer a somewhat waterproof bag.

I have had one of these on my KLR for years. Works very well.

Is the zipper water proof?

The picture is of a 2nd Gen bike, but the product is of a universal design.  Rumbux has been selling this product for several years with fitment listed for BMW, KTM and Yamaha bikes with all the same part number.  In other words, it's intended to fit a multitude of bikes with either strait tube bars or double butted bars.

Seems to be I've had no problem.

FWIW, the Rumbux bags use water/dust proof zippers, but to the best of my knowledge the bag itself is only water resistant, not water proof.  I've had good results spraying them with Scotchguard once a year.

Thank you for the quick reply Eric.

The Giant Loop bag looks fine as well, but maybe a bit too small for my need. I'll have to look into that.

From just looking at pictures, a handlebars bag that fit the 1200GS should fit fine on the S10:

Thanks for the photos Eric. What items do you carry in your HBar bag? I normally carry a few small tools, multi-tool, tire pressure gauge, pen & pad, gloves, eye glass cleaner, sun glasses, visor wipe, park passes, zip-ties, Ziploc bags, small flash light, and other small items I can't think of. Checked the HBar bag on my KLR but I have almost emptied it over the past five years.

I do not use a HB bag myself.  I use a tank bag and have too much crap up front for a HB bag.  The Rumbux Crash bar bags are made by the same company for Rumbux with very similar construction.

Agree on the HB bag but... since I got the 2015 ES I find myself not using the tank bag and was looking for a little more storage for everyday and light riding. A couple years ago I tried the crash bar bags from Storm Ind did not like how they attached to the Altrider crash bars. Last year I was riding the Lost Coast area and found a Tenere rider broke down on the side of the road. Earlier in Garberville his Tenere was knocked over on the left side. The crash bar bag packed with tire repair gear was forced through the crash bar and pushed into the side panel that was pushed into the radiator. He did not know the radiator was damaged and continued to ride. I found him after his Tenere had stalled more than once. We discovered what happened after we removed the side panel. Long story short... look closely at what you fasten to your Tenere. All of his expenses were covered by his insurance company.
