Maybe WTB - Tank Bag For 919

This is kind of a feeler for used pricing. I can get a Dowco magnetic tank bag that matches my saddlebags for about $60 but am willing to entertain other brands/etc if the price is right.

I'm in no hurry since my trip to the mountains isn't until May. A place for a map on top would be nice but not required.

Thanks,
Chris

I want to get something for a couple trips this year too.

Please post up your links and suggestions. I don't have a clue as to what I might want or need, but I will need to haul more than just a backpack.

This is the one I'm looking at the most seriously...

For $51.00 it looks like a good deal to me.

I'm also looking at one made by ICON that is a bit smaller but I like that it turns into a backpack as well.

My recommendation is not to skimp too much on a good tank bag. A good bag is invaluable! I use mine every ride and have been using the same one for 10-years now. Here is the brand I use and will always be loyal:

Here is a good price on what looks like a good bag:

http://www.motorcyclecloseouts.com/e...bag+-+magnetic


My personal preference is a magnetic bag with expandability several separate compartments internally and externally with a nice loop/handle. I've never had an issue with my magnetic tank bag and the loop makes it great for taking with you when you leave the bike. I've used mind on the H-D, I had it on the KLR with no issues. A clear waterproof top pocket is a must.

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

Hey Chris,

I have this one and it has probably been the best tank bag I've owned. More than enough space to hold stuff as it is expandable, doesn't move in <<cough>> slightly elevated speeds, got your map pocket as requested lotsa little pockets for farkles and turns into a back pack to boot.
