Looking for a nice convenient small-medium tankbag
« on: July 27, 2019, 07:27:51 PM »
I already have the big triumph tankbag.
However, I am looking for a convenient tankbag for day-to-day stuff that I want to have handy(cellphone, pen, multitool, coins, etc.).
I've seen a handlebar bag that's way too expensive.
So far, the cortech low profile 5-10l bag looks the closest to what I want, but still may be a bit big for my use. Maybe not...
Any good suggestions/experience....?

Take a look at Tourmaster, they have several. I have their universal unit on my Triumph Tiger and I am pleased with it. I have the Triumph OEM bag for my Trophy and I agree with you it is just too big.

I use this one from a member's mod (see link lower). Perfect for me so far and my hydration bladder fits in it also.
Dang it, "currently unavailable" at Amazon.

Been looking at this one myself. Not going to carry a lot but, might be the type your looking for. Have the Triumph bag too but, only see myself using it when I actually go on trips.

I'm using a Cortech small AND a larger one that are mounted, shall we say backwards, using the OEM front mounting point and a couple of 3/8" ID strap adapters I found at the fabric store and they fit the crossbar on the seat perfectly with a strap attached and a buckle coming up the side of the seat for the rear mount.  They fit just inside the protective ends of the crossbar and inside the frame mounting point like they were made for it.  Elastic strapping from the rear (technically front per the mfr.) tank bag mounts completes the install and fueling is easy by releasing the front buckle and sliding/tipping the bag back.  Works like a charm.  I guess I should post some pictures, but moving to another house has my time fully utilized.  I'll try to get around to that.  DON'T try my Gatorade hydration supply system.  Some here may fill you in on that fiasco! :745:

The 5-10L Cortech looks like my best bet, so far.
Actually, I wish that I could find a nice handlebar bag. I had a nice one on previous bikes, but it won't work with the SE's bars.
Tourtech used to sell one but, even if it were still available, it was way overpriced for me.
So, I guess it's back to a backward mounted Cortech super 2.0 low profile...
Thanks for the good guidance & I can only imagine the Gatorade story.....!(lol)
