I have one and it works fine! I used mine when I rode back and forth from Dickinson to Tiki Island! Held good at regular speeds, but I never got over 80ish with mine on the tank!

I've used one. Stayed in place just fine at hwy speed and while turning. It wasn't mine but after using it I would buy one if I needed it regularly.

I am contemplating a tank bag also but look at cortech with the map sleeve on top.

I have 2 cortech bags. A small one and a large one that doubles as a backpack and tailpack. They hold on just fine with the magnets. I would put down a rubber insulator to protect the paint.

How much weight can you add to these while mounted to the tank without shifting?

And... Has anyone ever seen the Map sleve only for tanks?

I usually go and get groceries with the bag. my little bag is expandable. Last night I put 2 jars of spagettie sauce 2 bags tortalini, small loaf of french bread, package of italian sausage and a block of cheese in the bag. it stands a little tall but does not shift or want to leave the bike in any way.

I use a backpack most of the time to tote my stuff.
I was actually looking for a way to prevent from getting lost while on rides.

I think I've found the solution.

TBAG PCKT NAV SM 300

Not much weight, not too high, I can easly re-map routes on the same.
I just wonder about how it would fit :eh:
