    Handlebar Bag

    I am looking for a small handlebar bag to fit my phone/wallet/keys/sunglasses.

    I like the Giant Loop Zigzag bag but $55 seems like a lot for a small bag.

    Show me what you have and what you think. Thanks

    That does seem like a lot of money for something that will flop around while blocking the view of instrument cluster and interfering with access to the ignition switch.
    I accomplish the same storage goal with small zippered bags affixed to the nose of the seat pans on my TWs and extending over the gas tanks but shy of the gas cap.

    For a small bag for your purposes you may want to consider items marketed to the bicycle crowd. I've often found items specific to other sports (lightweight backpacking, bicycling, hiking, snow skiing, snowmobiling, etc) to crossover very well and they're often less expensive than moto specific items.

    Or, for something like you describe, it should be simple enough to adapt a small cheap fanny pack for the purpose.

    Normally I don't shop at Walmart for moto gear, but I once found a small magnetic tank bag at a local store that had them marked down to... I think, $16 or such. It's the perfect size for small needs like yours.

    There are several photos of it mounted, in the customer review section on Amazon that should give you an idea. Looks a bit large for that application for me, but it just depends on the individual's needs.

    I use Zig Zag bag on dirt bikes with no mirrors or racks but on TW I use a black Mountain Smith fanny pack from Sportsmans Warehouse and wrap it around the mirrors. Works great

    I just was in same dilemma and went with Tusk fender bag. I think it is going to work out perfect. I am going to mount on top of front fender.
