Kinda hard to do unless you tell us what you want to carry around in it, and how you intend to use it. There are dozens of them out there that will work just fine on a 310, but they range in size from 4l to 25l and up. Some are waterproof, some require a waterproof liner or cover. Some mount and unmount easily, some not so much.

I've got the Giant Loop Fandango Pro on my 310GS. It's just the right size for me to carry my Sony A7RII camera with a 24-105mm lens attached, plus a few little knick-knacks like snacks and a pair of sunglasses. It's highly water resistant, but also comes with a "dry-pod" liner. And it has a small map window.



Works for me, but YMMV.

Hm... Well, I'm afraid I've never considered using a tank bag for carrying around clothes, so I can't think of any good suggestions for you, Mark. Maybe someone else here can. But it might help it you narrowed it down a bit. I mean "clothes" can encompass everything from a full-body, armored suit to a G-string and some pasties.

Going to visit friends for a couple of weeks. About 80 miles away.
Just taking some change of clothing.
Toiletries etc. Would just use my backpack, but I am afraid it will be too small. And later on in the year, I will
touring some, so the tank bag will come in handy for that..

I've just ordered a set of straps for my Wolfman Blackhawk baf so that I can transfer it between my TEx and the GS.

It's small, but it's all that I need for what I want to keep at hand during a ride.

If you're looking for something to carry a week's worth of stuff, look at some good soft luggage that you can just throw over the pillion and strap down.



Luggage capacity, obviously, isn't one of my issues on the TEx.

If you're looking to bring change of clothes I don't think a tank bag is what you need. Mine is the BMW tank bag made for the G310 and I can fit a hat and a few other things in it. You might want to look into a bag you can strap down on the passenger seat.
