Tank Bag Recommendations

Looking for tank bag recommendations:

- clear map pocket on top
- two compartments - one for a 2 litre camelback
- easy access to fuel filler
- additional side pockets would be nice

Any suggestions?

I have two sitting around from other bikes, but neither really works.

I have had several over the years, but my favorite by far is the Kawasaki Trans Bag. A bit expensive but fits the bike well and looks good on it.

I just switched a Wolfman Blackhawk for a Ranier on my '08. The latter meets all your criteria except #2 (though it does have a moveable vertical divider). I found the Blackhawk was just a bit too small for my needs, but I was otherwise very happy with it. The Ranier will hold a six pack, just in case...

My bike came with a Nelson Rigg bag and I planned to take it off once I bought it but
I really like it. Doesnt get in the way and just loosen one strap to expose the filler cap.
The clear plastic top is electronic friendly so you can use your GPS or phone without removing it.
I think it's a CL-1045 if you google or find it on youtube.

I bought the Nelson Rigg for a temporary fix and found out I really liked it

I was given a Tour Master as a present and it sticks to tank with magnets. At first it seemed huge but I got used to it. Lots of room. I like it but nothing to compare to.
