I'll try this here query here as a duplicate of an F650 Forum thread I started yesterday & trying for more input. As there are scads of brands & models of tank bags, help me out if you have a bag that's a great fit,quality, value,etc., on this MC. I had hoped to use my Wunderlich bag but it is just too large IMO, as it crowds the bars and the tummy area. I sort of "get it" as to how some women get attached to a certain purse-I hate to give up my tank bag. I ride trips only, no dirt & no commutes.
The severe hump of the fake tank area & short distance between the seat & bars causes some bags that say they are made for that MC to fit no better than the bag I have from pictures I've viewed. My notion of a properly shaped bag for this MC would have it not so high at the seat end and taller toward the bars. Some slope this way in what has the map window facing the rider.
My current bag- the base measures 10" wide/front(that's OK @ bars) x 13.5"wide/back @ rider(that's kind of wide) x 15.5"long (that's a bit long but will work if the new bag is not so tall near seat) x 6.75" tall(at lowered height which is about as high as works well on this MC lowered).
I'm not real excited about dropping large cash for a BMW bag but am willing to do the ~$200 area & down & don't have a particular brand in mind either.
