Tank bags?

Any body have a good tank bag that's stays put and holds some stuff? I'm on a gixxer with a partial metal tank and plastic cover on the front side . Magnetic or straps? Does not need to have a clear map pocket either. Collapsible would be great for those needed times too. Thanks.

I bought a sedici awhile back from cycle gear. it was cheap. and it holds on to 140+, magnetic. cant complain. I can fit my full size 9mm and all my pocket and random goodies in there.

also makes a good lunch box for those days you ride to work and go get lunch.

just make sure they cut the sub in half first

I've got a large expandableFieldshear tank bag that I really like, but the primary attachment system is magnetic, and I haven't had a bike with a metal tank in several years now, so I've improvised a strap/clip system to attach it on my rat bike on long trips. I haven't tried it on my sprint yet, but I am planning on using threaded bungs already in the frame to secure straps so that I can just clip it on whenever I need it.

Should still have my bag from zx6r somewhere... it is magnetic and worked fine on my 2006 monster. Haven't check it since my crash in 2012 but if you interested you can have it for 20 bucks in the woodlands

Don't remember. I think it's a FieldShear Contour, but I've had it for five years or so, so don't imagine they're still making them. It was something I found on sale (black friday deal, maybe), sent the link to my parents because they always say they never know what to get me, and then got it for Christmas.

I recently purchased the IXS Raron Magnetic Tank bag from an online store selling excellent quality of motorcycle parts and accessories at the most reasonable rates. The bag is top-class and has good storage space. You can see the picture and if you wish you can order it here.
