Default Favorite Tank Bag

Cortech Super Mini. This bag holds quite a few small items and is easy to move on/off the bike. It also doesn't obstruct the turning or beep the horn.

Any others our there?

I've used a big Eclipse magnetic bag since my days on the old '92 Concours. It holds a lot, expands to boxcar proportions and sticks very well. Unfortunately, it has the sharp-left-turn warning (horn beeps) which gets attention in gas stations and parking lots. So I'm always looking for a smaller bag that still holds the important stuff. Thanks for the heads-up!

I'll second that. The Cortech Super-mini holds the essentials, is inexpensive ($65), and is unobtrusive. I keep my sunglasses, phone, wallet, extra key, and a bottle of water in it, and can quickly go from one bike to the other. I don't like the huge bulbous-ass tank bags I see on some bikes as they look like they would interfere with the bars---handlebars, that is, not the ones where the Harley guys park.

Thumbs up Re: Favorite Tank Bag

Nelson Rigg CL300 magnetic. Street price about $70.

Has detachable clear window pocket for maps or Mp3 player.
Not too big but a good size for things like GPS , cables, Mp3, cell phone, etc.
Nice internal mesh pockets on the inside of the lid for keys, cell, etc.
There is 1 large inside compartment and 2 outer pockets.
It does slightly restrict the handlebars a little when turning around.
Super strong magnets
It comes with a weather cover.
The quality is outstanding.

Thumbs up Re: Favorite Tank Bag

I have both the Cortech Super Mini and the Cortech Mini Tank Bags. The Super is my choice for commuting and day rides and the Mini which is slightly larger with most of the same features. The Mini does hit the wind screen and horn switch but only at full lock. The cost of these together at my local Honda Dealer was less than some others. The one thing I like about the Mini is the larger map pouch. Yea I know maps are not high tech but I just love to sit in some distant dinner and figure out which road is the best to get to my next stop and it gives the locals something to refer to if they have an interest in helping.

Ride Safe,

I went for the Joe Manta, small edition. Perfect size for the little extras. Great magnet strength.

Manta review

I even got a good deal from the dealer. I mentioned as a joke, "what's the price for a good customer?" He took ten percent off. Made the price competitive.

Has anyone heard about the bad effects of the Super Strong magnets on tank bags that mess up the GPS memory cards or the memory on the MP3 players??
