    Which tank bag?

    I used to have a Marsee (made in USA) tank bag strapped to my TW last year but the stitching and nylon material was so weak and the stitching would come undone and jam up the zipper. Besides that, i liked the idea and convenience of a tank bag (although mine was a little too big for the TW). I still use backpacks and ROK straps on my rear cargo rack but having a backpack leads me to pack so much stuff as if I'm planning for the worst even if I'm riding only a few miles from home (Imagine loading 15-20 lb of gear).

    Post pictures of your gear and bags, please.

    I always liked Cortech bags. Very well made. I had the Cortech mini on my Ducati, and loved it. Their a little pricey though. I just bought this one in blue to strap on my rear fender rack. Cheap too. Haven't used it yet, but looks well made "for the price". It's kinda insulated like a cooler bag. I travel very light, which is why I got rid of my Cyclerack for a very small Manrack.

    Nelson Riggs Cl-1010 Micro Tank Bag.

    I didn't want a big bag, this one is a good size for my needs. That is an iphone 6 plus in the map pocket so you can visualize the size.

    Mine fits on a Clarke tank, misses the gas cap and still has enough room if I need to move forward on the seat a bit.

    When I used a tank bag over the years I tended to gravitate to a rather large one, but that was on BMW GS's mostly. I did decide I wanted something for the TW though, to hold my wallet, cell phone, glasses case and scout knife. I ended up with the Wolfman Enduro Pocket and I am quite happy with it. It has a bungie that holds my map for easy use on the outside, fits well and stays in place. Since I keep my wallet and glasses and knife in it I pop it off when I go in to eat and such. It's quite small and I was afraid I would forget it somewhere...at least until I got back to the bike and sat down, so I bought two extra fastex buckles and a length of nylon strap and fashioned a sling for it. I can throw it over my shoulder or put it around my waist. Like I said, it's not big, but it's perfect for my use.

    Nice choices. As someone who has dual sported with a tank bag and a backpack both loaded down at the same time, i had such a hard time keeping the TW upright. Thanks for all the info and pictures.

    Not a tank bag but an alternative handlebar bag from Kathy's Journey Designs. Holds sunglasses, small P&S Camera, ear plugs and has a little pocket on the top for folded bills, for those commuters among us.

    I have a Wolfman on Big Bertha and have to unclip it to get to the gas cap, which is kind of a hassle. I like that Icon unit.

    But lord, I though fanny packs went out in the 80's !!

    That Kathy's handlebar bags looks nice for the TW. I have the Wunderlich handlebar bag on my big GS and really like it but it won't fit on TW.
