    Not bad, if you could get it for $3k or less it would be a good deal. I like the S model more, but the naked model with a gsxr front end looks so nice!

    Like you I’m riding a cruiser style that carves. For 7 years I’ve run soft bags. I do a lot of miles and want tools. Water. Never found a tank bag that wouldn’t look really out of place - they’re mostly oriented towards the adv or sport crowd - which makes sense. Came across this and for the stupid low price thought it was worth a try. I use rok straps to back up the magnets. Don’t know how I lived without a tank bag now. Tool roll. Bottle of water. Will pop off when I’m leaving it in a sketchy area. Gets pretty big. Collapses well (air release valve) water proof. Kind of muted appearance. No neon. And not so structured that it maintains a massive profile even when empty.

    Still run soft bags for touring trips but that’s it.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I have bike packing bags on my pedal bike (rather than panniers) as I pack light and they’re much more aero so I’m feeling a handlebar bag, tank bag, sissy bar bag, combo will be more than I could ever need on a trip. The wife and I both pack really light and after this riding season she’ll be on her own bike on trips so she’ll have her own bags as well. Thanks!

    Picked up a $10 walmart bicycle top tube bag to use as a ghetto handlebar bag for this trip. Actually pleased with how well it stays in place, even if it doesn’t look the coolest haha but it’ll still hold sunglasses, wallet, keys, chapstick, ear plugs, etc just fine.

    Leaving in like half an hour, woo!

    If you could get it for $1500 it would be a okay deal. But by the looks of it, it was abused which makes it a hard no for me.

    Man, the place I put a deposit down for the wife’s Grom said June when I did, then started saying July. Now it’s saying August for the ABS version I ordered. He said he’ll have a non-ABS in July and my bike in August.

    Riding season is pretty much over here come September and we will be out of country July to August anyway so I’m torn.

    Do I grab the non-ABS version in July so she can ride it for a week or two, but then leave for a month anyway, or wait until after our trip, get her ABS version in mid-end of August, and have her only have a month to ride before weather turns on us anyway…

    About sick and tired of this Rona mumbo jumbo and poor economy. Ruined four important trips, our income, our savings, parts for my bike, and a bike for the wife already haha. Put the down payment on it with the understanding I’d have it by now, but it’s no climate to be demanding a discount ha.

    I’d wait for ABS. Two weeks of riding isn’t worth skipping it

    ^^^ I agree. If you ordered the ABS, I'd just wait that little extra for the one you wanted for her.
