Okay... I use my bike as my DD. On my F4i I recently upgraded from, I always carried a magnetic tank bag for any small stuff... or if I wanted to hit a drive-thru for a biscuit on my way to work... Stuff like that.

However... the plastic tank cover on the RR renders my tank bag useless... so I was wondering what other RR-commuters and daily-riders used?

I don't keep anything on my bike but I keep a collapsible bag in the tail so I can carry stuff if I need too



but I also have this tail bag I can throw on if I'm going somewhere overnight

I just recently purchased this:

http://thecycleguys.com/default.aspx?PageID=120&CategoryID=33&ProductID=209

I'm pretty happy with it. It's big enough to carry my lunch and ipad. Although I haven't tried it yet, it should be big enough to pack a light change of clothes and some sneakers.
I was looking at this too... Thanks for the feedback. Mainly interested because D2Moto carries them and you can regularly get 15-40% coupon codes there. :)

Do you have any photos of it on your bike?

I use the back pack and a tank bag for light loads. I have a 06 rr and my tank bag sticks just fine on the tank even at 130mph.

Magnetic??? Really? I haven't tried mine, I just assumed it wouldn't stick because of the plastic cover, but I guess if the magnets are strong enough and the metal is close enough to the back of the plastic, it could work. Hmmm

Yes, when completely collapsed, you pillion can sit atop of it. (Allegedly) ;)

The magnets on my Icon and Nelson Rigg tank backs were not strong enough to stick to the tank through the plastic tank cover on my 07. Instead, I bought a set of neodymium magnets and used epoxy to glue them to the underside of the tank cover.

Works great and the bags stick better than even to all metal tanks. Small or large disk magnets should be fine.

Gym bag. Something similar to this (although not that size). http://www.ebagsmart.com/productdetail/547/ogiodufflebag.htm
Cost is around $20 - $30.

Modified so it is strapped/tied down to the tail. I use a $6 cargo net from Harbor Freight to additionally hold it down.

I use a backpack as well if needed, but if everything can be put into my "tailbag" or strapped down via the cargo net, I do it. I don't like having on my back, let alone a backpack w/ stuff in it.
