Bagter 1213E!!
Written by cameron19444 on 5/20/2010 at 07:45 pm

I made a tank bag out of one made for a bicycle. It was originally intended to
attach via Velcro, but I put snaps and had the Velcro attach to itself. Then I
made some short pieces of webbing with the opposing snaps that I attached to the
studs holding the top front of the faux tank and one coming out of the space
between the seat and the fuel filler door. A three-point harness works great
and I put some clear, self-sticking countertop plastic between the bag and the
tank to keep the paint from scratching. It's been great but I must admit, the
self-sticking stuff need to be replaced after a couple of years now.

All in all, the cost was about $30 and the bag has worked great for me. Every
couple of years I try to remember to spray it with some waterproofing, but for
the most part, it stays dry and things are within easy reach. When I get off
the bike, I click three snaps and throw the bag into the trunk.

I'll likely won't replace it until I get a new bike.

      I have been using a Joe Rocket Mantra tank bag for a few years. It came with magnets and I replaced three of the four magnets with little suction cups and they work just fine and don't hurt the paint. The fourth magnet lines up with the gas d

        I second the Joe Rocket Manta tank bag. Someone else on the list suggested it, and I found one slightly used on eBay for 30 bucks. It attaches well with suction cups on the side of the tank (the Manta's 'wings') but to make it extra secure I
