I use the Kawasaki bag and think it's a quality product: heavy construction with good zippers. The velcro attachment straps are robust and hold it securely in place. Around $35.

I tried a regular bicycle handlebar bag when I got my bike. It was only about $10 and held a lot, but the way it fit made it rub the top of the tank when turning and would have worn the paint. So, I got the KLR bag. Its made to fit, so no worries and as mentioned is good quality and fastens securely.

Being the cheap guy I am - I found a cheaper solution. Behold, $7.99:



http://www.shopatron.com/products/pr...=ATVHP-B/697.0



(Available in black) Ships free from Amazon with $25+ of super saver shipping products.


I have a ATV logic tank painner and it seems to be holding up just fine. Certainly better than my one month old faded coleman seat cover.
