Thumbs up Chase Harper 950 tank bag

Got my new tank bag via UPS today and am so excited I had to share.
Last week I called Chase Harper to ask some questions and got Ron Harper on the phone. After he answered all my questions I decided to order their 950 tank bag. I got the strap mount. It fits the bike very nicely and I can't believe how well thought out it is. Pockets everywhere. The backpack straps are attached and fold into a zippered pocket. The map case is reversible and removable. Install was about 10 minutes. I like that the straps stay on the bike.
I still have at least one [not sure where the other one is] of their Compac throw over saddlebags that I bought about 35 years ago. I use it to put my clothes in and it goes into my Pelican bag. Makes packing easy.

Great looking bag. Thanks for sharing and the photos. Always good to know when new stuff comes on the market.
I had a tank bag with straps on another bike and eventually the sliding scuffed the paint, so I went to the small Givi tank lock bag that I love. I'm glad to see this one sits on the solid vinyl section of the tank. Can you turn the bars all the way without hitting it?
