I don't like the width of '12 Adventure with the oem bags on it, so I am thinking of just leaving them off except for long trips, and running a top box and tank bag all the time. I already have the top box on the bike.
I own about 4 tank bags, but they were all intended for flat top metal tanks. As you know, the V-Strom's tank is not flat and there is a lot of plastic, and magnets just arent attracted to plastic.
I am thinking about getting a tank bag that mounts to a ring on the fuel filler cap (I don't like straps), but I am put off by the expense and I am afraid wht bag will sag and rub the paint off of the tank.
I would like to hear what the collective wisdom is regarding tank bags. Pictures too, if ya got'em!
