Welcome to the site
It all depends if you want magnetic or strap style

The factory Kawasaki one is nice. Expensive.
The small see thru tray at the top is for fast track devices, from what I have been told
http://www.kawasaki.com/KawasakiNew/...CategoryID=160


Go to road rider in San Jose. They have some on the wall they will let try them out on the motorcycle.
I am currently using a cheap magnetic tank bag from walmart. I run it backwards on the tank. It works but cheaply made. Found it at the walmart in Milpitus
Not my picture

I am saving up for the bags connection tank bag that mounts to ring around the gas cap

I really love pissing off the guys in the loud pickup trucks who can't stand me to pass them on such a little motorcycle. Guess it challenges their bad azz manhood image. They think they got dissed by a scooter!

I'm getting off topic here but some of those big trucks are so loud and the black clouds of fuel its unreal. Some are just for show, to say to other look at me I'm a big stud macho man! LOL I always think what an idiot!

That black exhaust is just passing gas from eating a prius. At least that's what theneighbor kid tells me. His is all lifted and stuff. He let me drive it once. The only thing that I can say about it is that it "looks" really cool, but drives like absolute crap.

Ever notice how many of those pick-ups have a sticker for H-D in the rear window...?

I need to get me some of those Harley stickers. We have three Harleys and no stickers.

Got a closet full of Victory t-shirts, though. Free with the test drive of every Victory.

Come to think of it, we don't have a pickup-truck, either.

Do you think those guys with those trucks actually own a Harley, or do they just have the stickers?

To the original poster - I have this Cortech tank bag. It works well.

It's an 8 liter. We also have the 12 liter bag. They also make the 18 liter bag, which looks like the 12 liter bag with a zippered expando sorta thingy that gives it more height. The 12 liter bag is good for the 1+ day trips.
