Yes, ok up on tops, it's these parts I'm always wary of.

If you do decide on soft luggage then go to Glasgow angling site and look up Lomo roll bags, they do them for motorbikes. They work very well are very well priced and work brilliantly. Variety of capacities too.

One further point on soft luggage, Travel insurance wouldn't pay out for a friend who had their roll bag stolen whilst they'd stopped at a service station - evidently it has to be lockable.
TDM 900 (Commuting duties) and a 2018 Tiger Sport.  Orange Tiger 1050  - gone but not forgotten.........also in the past a 900 Sprint and 955 Tiger. Just added an XJR1300 to the stable............

I own a 2019 Tiger Sport 1050 and just joined the forum from the Isle of Man.  I'm looking forward to learning and sharing my experiences with the bike.

My first question about it is have Triumph ever made a tank bag for it? 

I've looked on line and only seen aftermarket products and have not yet been able to find a Triumph web page with all of the accessories for the bike.  Any help would b appreciated.

They did do a tank bag, try Googling part number A9510268, there's a few still available.
I used to have one, but didn't get on with it, I ended up with a MW Motech City tank bag, which fits perfectly, but not so good if you need to carry a lot of stuff.
There's a picture of it on the bike up thread.

Also have a City bag, as Dusty said not massive but it is expandable, Motech also do a GS bag which is same shape but a larger size, spends what and how much you want to put in it,
Motech and Givi are the way to go in my opinion as they both operate with a tank ring so quick and easy with no horrible straps or clamps round the tank

The problem I had with the larger tank bags is they foul the bars at anything approaching full lock, IIRC even the Triumph one does.

+1 for SW Motech City bag.

Fits all I need for on a ferry, eg toilet bag, sandals, hiking trousers for on boat + clean chuckies & T shirt for next day. Along with all personal stuff & p/work. Beats carrying a pannier up to the cabin.
Also: '16 Tiger 800, '95 Yamaha Serow, '58 Ariel FH.

The Motech City bag looks like a good size and fit, and I like the mounting system.  Thanks for the input.
