Tank Bag

Does anyone use a tank bag? If so, are you willing to post a picture or two? I'm thinking about getting one and fitting it to the bike, but I sit on the darn thing wondering if this bike is made to carry a tank bag. I always found them useful on my other bikes I've owned, but I can't get a sight picture on how one would look on the CTX. Thanks!

I do. I took the plastic over the tank off and glued magnets on. Now my tank bag sticks automagically. Was a PITA..

I use a Wolfman tank bag , I think it's the enduro, rear straps go around the frame then I added front straps with suction cups. Not sure how to post pictures.

I mounted an SW-Motech bag to my ride.
I used the drill on mounting ring to the lid of the gas door.
It works great and has a quick release when needing to gas up.
It is very stable when riding. Ive used it for this past season and an very pleased with it.
Cheers

I'm impressed by this. I would have never thought about drilling holes in the gas lid. That is very interesting and you have peaked my interest.

I've considered this in the past, but thought the bag would obstruct my view of the dashboard. Not so?

It doesn’t obstruct the view of the dash.
There are taller bags that might obstruct the view.
I’m happy with this size as it’s just for small stuff that I don’t want in the saddlebags.

In addition to others already posting here...
This is the thread referred to by @Duff
https://www.ctx1300forum.com/forum/a...-tank-bag.html
Not all computers display threads the same depending on settings for web page size. I found it about 6-7 threads down on the second page. If someone has their settings to be very much compact it may have ended up on the first page of thread list. So I figure it's always best just to post the Link Back link directly to it when possible.

BTW- moved this thread to the Accessories and Gear sub-forum.
