Default Re: Favorite Tank Bag

I still have the Eclipse tank bag, with shoulder straps, so it can be used as a backpack. It has side and rear pockets and a map area on top.
It uses quick release buckles. I used it on my '80 CB750K and my '84 700 Saber.

I also have a small, red magnetic tankbag that came from Cycle Guide magazine, that I never used much.

I am not a hoarder, I am not a hoarder, I am not a hoarder, I am not a hoarder.

LOL I've got people coming over tomorrow, requires a whole day of cleaning.....I am very proud of myself just threw out a pile videotapes and cassettes (no longer own a VCR or cassette player)

I'll get this place looking like a page from House and Garden if it kills me

I still have a couple piles of both, but I do still have a cassette tape player. It's just that getting rid of video tape is a concern for me, because it's damaging to the environment and I try to be diligent about conservation. At the same time, though, I'll go "for a ride" and burn through several gallons of fuel, just to do it. Most of the videos are recorded in the UK (PAL format, not compatible with the NTSC we have here in the US), and my multi-system VCR and TV have both been gone for over a decade.....lol....

Default Re: Favorite Tank Bag

Since technology (at least, with Comcast) is not keeping up with my needs, I still have and use 3 VCR's, along with my dual DVR.

I record stuff on VHS, when the times conflict with DVR programming, that way, I have stuff to watch in the off seasons.

I have a Magnavox AM FM stereo with 8-track for the house, a portable AC/DC 8 track player and a couple of auto 8 track players, one is an Audiovox.
I even have a Sony AM/FM cassette player that I bought for my wife's old T-Bird, I removed it when the car was totalled.

Any offers?

Cortech super mini. The magnets don't have any bad results on my AAA paper maps!

I still have a bunch of cassette tapes in my van, from when I took Japanese classes, in '87.

Must clear them out.

I have really gotten great use from my Marsee 15l Tear Drop tank bag.

As the magnets are separating from the bag, I will be looking for a replacement over the winter.

Just ordered my first-ever tank bag, after searching for and reading this thread. Ended up cheaping out (knowing that this may be an area like tools where the most expensive to own is the cheapest to purchase). Ended up going with the Classic Accessories 73717 MotoGear Motorcycle Tank Bag; after I've had it for a while I'll post my impressions.

I've got a Bagster tank cover on my bike, but with risers I was always knocking into the bags with the bars. I've got a really tiny Bagster (City?) bag that does work okay without interference, but the bigger bags don't, IMHO. I leave the tank covers on all of my bikes--protects the tank and not an issue unless you're constantly lifting the tank.

Yeah, that last reason is why I didn't keep my Bagster either. But, it is a really nice looking setup.
