Surprising fix for magnetic tank bag slippage

I've yet to put this through it's paces on a long ride, but I may have just discovered something awesome!

I cut out a piece of that soft foam mesh you use to keep rugs from slipping around and placed it under my magnetic tank bag. Even though the tank is waxed, it is pretty tough to make it budge.

I got some black stuff, so you don't even notice it!

Time will tell if it scuffs the tank, but I'd imagine it would only help protect it. I'm going on a 12hr two-day ride this weekend, so we'll see...

This is the stuff I'm talking about:

Yeah I didn't buy it from HD- there's no way I would pay that much. It was one of those things I randomly found laying around.

It's amazing how much crap I have without knowing where the hell it came from.
