    My wife learned to not set it on the pillion seat.
    After fueling in Vanderpool Texas and heading up the grade, west toward Leaky, my wife looked down at her tank after 10 miles or so, and no tank bag
    She reached back and found the bag still on the seat.
    I also found making 2 U turns on 337 in the tight section is not easy.

    After that, we both set our tank bags on the rider seat when fueling.

    Good on Lee, having systems in place is a must! The military has good reason why tasks are carried out in a current manner the above is an example of that used by a motorcyclist.
