Giant Loop Tech Tip: Installing Fandango/Diablo Tank Bag on BMW 1200GS
On some of the BMW GSs and other adventure touring and dual sport bikes, cleanly installing Giant Loop’s Fandango/Diablo Tank Bag requires a couple of extra steps. GL rider Whitney shared these pics and comments about routing straps on his BMW R1200GS:
“Here are two pics of the original fandango mounted on my 05 R1200GS.”
“I run the straps under the leading edge of the seat and down to the frame.”
“The left side is a tight fit, but I am able to shove the strap through.”
