Baglux Tank Cover

Fitted a Baglux tank cover in preparation for a long weekend trip to a Moto Guzzi bike rally.

*thumbs up*

Stops scratches, paint fading and general wear and tear. Just take it off now and then to prevent moisture building up ( I wash & wax the tank thoroughly once in a while) and careful how you strap it on around the headstock - as it can interfere with the sterring slightly. Or secure underneath the tank mout tab.

Plus the Bagster tank bags clip easily and securely on...

My experience with these is that fine dust gets under it, acting as sandpaper and dulling then scratching the paint.

I have used them to hide damaged tanks but wouldn't use it on a nice tank unless the color of the tank was wrong for the bike and I didn't care.

YMMV

No such problem here - The baglux vinyl tank cover is secured on the tank at the headstock and a pair of elasticated hooks to the botton seams sides - covering the entire visibble top of the tank. Tank remains shiney like new.

May be more a problem with the half-cup US style tank covers.

That tank cover, I'm thinking of rugby. Not that I know anything about rugby.
