    Hi just checking in to see if anybody recommends a good mini tank bag and how do you secure it. Was assuming the standard magnetic bags won't hold well when in rough riding conditions. Is there a better securing system?



    thanks

    I use a fairly standard magnet style tank bag on mine. Unless you're trying to go race speed, it stays on nicely.

    I've used the Cortech Super Mini Magnetic tank bag on 3 different bikes. No problem with it staying in place:







    It also is available with straps instead of magnets if you choose.

    Bell bag from Walmart has magnets and D-rings for bungies. Magnets are good enough for street. Couple of bungies are good enough for dirt.

    Taking a different view, I love to shop for tank bags at the local thrift store. There are so many cd carriers, purses, shopping bags, toiletry kits, and each has potential for being an improvised tank bag for "cheap". Now if you want to carry a bowling ball on top of the tank, you need one of those specialty bags, but if what you want is your gps, a cell phone, granola bar, and your registration, I can fit all that stuff in a cd carrier. Come on you all, Support your local Salvation Army, ARC or other charity. Cheers, Tom

    Sorry I'm a bit late in replying, but my Icon Urban tankbag has been one of the best everyday bags I've had. It usually fastens on the tank with STRONG magnets and I've even had it "offroad" on a few bikes with little to no movement. It also converts to a backpack, and you can use the backpack straps to further secure it to the tank (depending on the bike). If you get into some really rough areas...again it converts into a backpack. I believe it had additional fastening straps that you could use to semi-quick-mount via the "scratchguard/helmet carrier" buckles as well as a couple D-rings, but I could be mistaken on that since I've had the bag about 6 years.



    I'm not saying it's perfect for everyone...but I've tried quite a few different tankbags and it's the only one I still own! It has a clear section that you can put items like a map/GPS, plenty of room for daily use (not a long-touring bag), and pretty versatile.

    Not sure if the link will work, but that's a review of it.

    Thanks dakman 74 for sharing. That link worked and it really is a cool bag. Super versatile. Sure appreciate you taking the time to give the info. Will definitely check it out. Being a girl, tank bags are kind of like a purse, we like them in different styles and colors!
