Tank Bag Questions

Hey everyone, this is my first post on this website. I just got an 07 650 with 7000 miles on it and i really want to get a tank bag. I've found a bag i want but I don't know if i should trust magnets with my valuables when whizzing down the road.

so to my question.... do you prefer the magnetic base or the strap base for tank bags?

i like the magnets because i can quickly remove the bag from the bike but the straps seem like a way more secure fit and i wouldn't have to worry about it being stolen off my bike as much if its strapped on.

thanks for any input..

Have a strap type Wolfmann that works great. I'm not to fond of magnets either. Makes it too easy to remove by the riff-raff when you stop for a quick pee break.
