Need Tank Bag Recomendation

Anyone want to recommend a tank bag you use and like? Or, warn against one that didn't work out so well?

I've got the Giant Loop Fandango that I like a lot. They have a Pro version out now that looks even better. I have a Wolfman on my other bike. Both brands are excellent in my opinion.

A good recommendation would be predicated on knowing the bag's intended use.

Do magnetic bags work on the dl650?

I bought a coretech magnetic bag but am concerned after reading on the apairofstroms blog that a magnetic bag wont work due to the plastic up front?

I have a magnetic bag on my 2012 Adventure and it works fine. It has never moved a bit no matter the conditions. Cheers!

anyone have a tank lock style bag? they are interesting but quite pricey. also i am not sure i like how they stick off the bike instead of being somewhat streamlined like a regular bag

+2 on Wolfman - specifically, the Rainier. It's appropriately sized, expandable, can add external pockets and the 4-point strap system really holds it solid. I hate 3-point systems.

I've got the XS308:

Soft bags XS308 TANKLOCK - GIVI

great bit of kit, easy to fit, secure, and no straps etc to chafe the paint. Looks the right size, if that doesn't sound stupid.
