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

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.

Is the zipper water proof?

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.

FWIW, I ordered two Rumbux Handlebar bags.  One is spoken for.  These are due around the end of Feb or beginning of March.
