Tank bags.

Farkleing now, suggestions for tank bags. I understand there is some concern with bags on the V interfearing with controls.

Cortech super mini, but it's tiny. Perfect for day trips, etc, no good for clothing or anything, but a sweet bag none the less.

+1 for Cortech. I have one size up from the super mini + barbacks and it's not a problem. The bars touch the bag at full lock, but not the grips or controls.

Have an Eclipse #201, had it forever (1978?), used it on every street bike I've owned in the last 28 years. Great all-round bag!

Forgot to mention, Had to replace the rubber base this year, parts are readily available! Great customer service direct from Eclipse.

when i 1st saw the JR manta...reminded me of a guy in high school used to keep 2 condoms behind the horn button of his 55 chevy. that's about all the room there is in that thing. just right for the HD tool kit....cell phone and a pack of marlboros.
