Don't know about FAMSA, but Touratech with sidebags is very functional tankbag, helps to keep the CoG low and takes wind off your legs too - very handy in the cold weather riding

Make sure the side bags don't affect the turning of the handlebars - some "sidebaged" tankbags do that, that's why I chose TT myself.

Look for a bag that is wedge shaped such as one that is recommended for a BMW gs series. They seem to fit the stroms well and once mounted the top is almost level. I have a wolfman denali bag I love. It sits perfect on the tank and is made with very god quality in the materals and craftmenship. He has others that may fit well.
