Tank bag

Can anyone recommend a small to medium size tank bag for the Versys? Maybe a magnetic one that would stay in place on the unique shape of the tank? Unless a strapped bag is better. I am not a tourer and only need something big enough to fit some things in for a 200-300 mile trip. I saw a Cortech mini bag at the dealer for around a $100 that looked pretty good when I was buying the bike. What do you guys think?

Garage
Joe Rocket "Manta" Tank Bag

Works great on the Versys. I had one until I upgraded to Wolfman's Rainier.

The Cortech works great for me, I also got the Cortech rear bag that works with my standard rack that i have on there. the rear bag works well and i dont have to leave it on all the time but work great for going to the store.

cheers

I bought the Bags Connection "city" bag from twistedthrottle.com. It is a perfect fit on the sloped tank. It mounts on a ring you install on the gas cap surround. Very slick, but a bit pricey.

I use the Cortech Mini Bag it is about $59 retail, and is magnetic. Works great on the VS as a Tank or Tail bag. I normally put mine on the tail, under a net. I can carry 2 bottles of water, and a small can of Honda Polish and a towel for my helmet. I have had this bag for about 6 years, and it works great and has been on several dirts rides as well.
