Look into my eyes, not beside my eyes or around my eyes but right into my eyes and sleep - you will buy the Hepco und Becker hard luggage  :191:   

3 - 2 - 1 and you're back in the room!

There are a number of threads on tank bags. Asking what people prefer is like asking them what kind of girl you should marry.

Here is a thread that includes the Nelson-Rigg tank and tail bags that I use.

They are inexpensive and expand to hold a lot of gear.

hi nortoon.
I like the sound of a tank bag as I cant have a rack as I have a problem with short legs which i just about clear the seat when getting on the x and I think my leg would catch the
rack if I had one so I use a back pack which I don't like to much because I carry I puncher
spray can plus sometimes a drinking flask which god forbid I come off not good to land on.
so a tank bag would be good but would it mark the tank?

One sure solution there is Baglux. Pricey but good.

In my experience a magnetic bag is easiest to use, but you will eventually end up marking the tank - if you are going to use a bag regularly Bagster is the best for convenience and ensuring do not mark tank - expensive but if you have more than one bike can transfer bag between bikes, or onto next bike by just buying new cover. Somebody was selling a cover for the X in the sales section.

I have a pretty basic Nelson-Rigg tank bag that I use from time to time. It's magnetic, works well without interference and hasn't yet marred up the finish but I imagine over enough time and use it will.
