I'm partial to the SW-Motech/Bags Connection line. No straps or magnets, no damage to your paint:

One more for the Joe Rocket Manta XL.

Fits the tank well. I've been using it daily for two months and there is no damage to paint or wear in the bag. Large enough to hold, workout clothes and shoes. One negative - no clear map pocket.

Wolfman Rainier. Fit's like a dream and I like a map pocket on the top.

-1 on the Wolfman... Yes, love the clear map pouch on top, construction is top-notch and yes it fits the Vee very well, but thats where the compliments stop. I hate the mounting systems, taking off the seat, feeding straps between the frame and the fairings... I am getting much faster at it and it still takes me 10min to fully get all the straps ready to attach the tank bag. Just my 2 cents.
