HANDLE BAR BAGS

I am looking for something that is nylon and has its own Velcro type straps to attach to my KLR handle bars. Just something to hold extra sunglasses, chap stick, cleear goggles. Any ideas? Did some cruisin' on the net. Didn't see anything of real interest. A tank bag is out. I am not a tank bag kind of guy. Way too closed in and confining to me.

Thanks Bill

Get one of the "sun visor pouches" for autos. You can pick them up for a buck or two, but you do have to wrap the straps around the cross bar a couple times.

This is a little priceir than some of the other suggestions, but it is really nice and works great. I am not sure how well it would work if you have a different windshield than stock...Doug

the Chase Harper saddle bags come with two little pouches that you can mount anywhere, I put one on my bars for glasses, wallet, ect. ect. and one I use fer smaller tools and goes right in the saddlebags, great deal ifn you gonna be gittin' some saddlebags anyway.

Funny, i was looking through some stuff in my garage and found a nylon zippered pouch, maybe 5"X3" with velcro. It was orginally designed to mount under the seat of a touring bicycle seat to hold a tube and tools.
I recently mounted it on my KTM 450 to hold energy bars and sometimes a cell phone.
I'm sure Target or Walmart may have something cheap.

This works well for me. I had forgot how expense these were. If you search "handlebar" at Tourtech you can find more. I also use a Wolfman Glovebox.
