I'm in Cumming... right near the Cherokee border. About 3 miles north of 9 off Campground, if you're familiar with the area...

I use the Givi 4L tankless bag on my 2012 Versys. I have recovered from a long history of 13L+ expandable bags used over the years for long tours and have learned to put in there what needs to be immediately accessible and pack the rest in the trunk. And pack less in general. The rain cover that comes with this bag works great, but the phone window is maxed out with an iPhone 6. My Versys has the satin/flat black paint which will be marked with a magnetic bag.

Just pull off the plastic tank wings and tape or glue rare earth magnets from Home Depot on the underside. You can then use whatever magnet tank bag you want.

The SW Motech "City" tank bag is often recommended. I have a generic $15 Cycle Gear tank strap mounted bag. It performs as well and looks as good as a $30 tank bag - which is to say it sorta works and does not fall off the bike frequently, and is not a bad value at $15 because of this, but don't expect to be anything like a $200 SW-Motech tank bag.

Wolfman Blackhawk Tank Bag... Love It!

When I brought my 2014 Versys home a couple weeks ago I had one of the shop owners help me install a Wolfman Blackhawk and I was instantly a fan of having a tank bag. I'll be adding a tail bag for longer rides soon but this is the perfect size for glasses, gloves, water bottle, med kit, or a sammich when I blast out at work on my lunch break.

Living in the same town as Wolfman kinda made it a no-brainer on which bag I'd try first. So far, so good. Coming off a decade of cruiser riding I'm not trying to tuck under the windscreen (and will likely be adding a taller screen at some point in the future anyway). I'll be adding Mosko Moto rear end luggage so maybe I'll give their tank bag a shot at some point but for pure utility I can't fault the Wolfman for anything. It ain't the cheapest for the size, but it's stout and hasn't moved around on me at all.
