Handlebar Bags

Can someone recommend a good handlebar bag. I like the touratech bag but at $135 thats way too expensive.

Try typing your title into ebay. Lots of bags.

What good is a handle bar bag over a tank bag?

I have this: https://giantloopmoto.com/product/zigzag-handlebar-bag/, their tank bag and Great Basin rear bag system. Seem an excellent product and they are a forum sponsor.

Wow. First time I have ever seen one of these. Can't imagine why you would want to add this thing to your handlebars? Esp on what is essentially a performance bike. I could understand on an Enfield Bullet but...

Umm maybe over at the cruiser forum there might be more folks wanting to strap something on the bars/forks...

Last time I checked the Vstrom was an adventure bike, not a sports bike.

Sounds like the best option you were given is the Giant Loop bag. Who said anything about a sportbike?

Have you used all those bags on fleabay, yourself, eeye? I'm thinking the OP was asking for recommendations from people who had used the bags and maybe their usefulness factor. Not where to buy one.

If it helps any, Winter, I have a crossbar/handlebar bag on my XT660 Yamaha and my Husky TR650. They are very useful. I use it to keep my GPS powercord convienently tucked away, among other things.

I prefer a small handlebar bag- like the Giantloop, rather than a tankbag, because I don't like a tankbag banging me when I'm standing on the pegs going over rough roads and gravel.

YMMV, good luck!
