Locking Tank Bag? (besides Tank Locker)

Does anyone know of a Locking Tank Bag that will work well on the DL650, besides the Tank Locker?

I had my Wolfman bag stolen at work today and a friend of mine had his stolen while the bike was in his driveway. They're nice, but way-too easy to steal.

Thanks.

Yes, a DL650 can definitely do a major smokey burnout!!

The TankSafe from Pacsafe is lockable:

It's a bit pricey compared with other bags but I'm thinking about getting one soon. I like the idea of being able to secure my gear and not have to take it off the bike everytime I stop.

I only have one dealer here that sells them (BMW), and they don't actually stock them. I don't buy anything anymore unless I see it in person first.

$200 is deinfitely pricey and I'm not sure if I like all those cables and locks hanging off the bag. However, there appears to be no alternative.

I've been worried about my explorer as well.

Would some type of cable lock slow the F'n thieves down?

650...Anything more than a handfull is wasted

Don't know if this would apply to a tank bag. I use a couple bicycle cable locks for various locking duties. The light duty cable, master lock and cookie cutter key seem like a good alternative to no lock at all. Two of them are even long enough to run through the sleeves of jackets and leave on the bike when walking about. Just plug one into the other for twice the length.

Twisted throttle has one made by bags connection you may wish to check out. Its spendy, but if your loosing tanks bags, it may well be worth the cost.

I love my bags connection bag, but they are not lockable. The quick lock refers to the way it mounts on your tank, using the SWmotech tank ring.
