    Default Storage options - are there any Spyder Tank Bags?

    Looking at the options and getting confused. Do any Spyder Riders use a tank bag? There are a huge number available, but which one would be the best option?

    All I want is a place to put a wallet, phone and a couple of papers. Perhaps a paper map would find its way in there also.

    I use the lockable under the rear seat cowl. Don't think it'll hold a map though

    I use a small Hopnel tank bag by Big Bike Parts. It measures 9" long by 6" wide by 3" high (when filled). The main pouch has a zipper closure and Velcro flap while the smaller pouch is 6". x 4" x 1" and has a clear window and Velcro flap closure. It mounts on the glove box lid of my 22015 Spyder RT-S. It's held in place by three elastic straps - two slip around the lid and the third goes over the front edge and is held in place by a Velcro pad on the front of the 2 slip-on straps. It's easy to mount and remove and is large enough for a good size phone and wallet and other small items. Unfortunately, I don't recall where I bought ours, and my quick check didn't reveal any vendors.

    Since my wife's 2012 RT-S was replaced by a 2021 Sea to Sky, we have an extra one. If you don't find anything suitable let me know and I'll send you the extra.

    Hello:

    I bought this Hopnel Tux Tie for my Spyder F3

    https://www.amazon.ca/Hopnel-H40-304.../dp/B078229S26. This is an Amazon Canada link, but you can get the product number from it. There are other online dealers.

    I have yet to install it, but I believe it is the same product as Arion referenced.

    Do you get four or five at that price? Or does it include a $50 gift card?

    GIVI had a system that looked promising, locking mechanism that attaches bag over fuel cap (no straps) could feasibly double as a lock for gas cap

    I got a tank bag on mine. Took the seat off and ran straps from an anchor point under the seat to the bottom of the bag, where I put a military style side release buckle. Ran the top straps on up to anchor points on each side. That model bag comes with a weather-proof map case that straps to the top of the bag if you want, or will store in the bag. You can also slip Fire Tablet or something else in the mao case. Plenty of room for small MP3 players with bluetooth to the helmet speakers. The bag has 3 or 4 zippered compartments for maps, notes, and small items. Had it attached full time for about 4 years. Still ingood condition and no broken zippers.

    To fuel up, I just unsnap the lower buckle and flip the bag over the handlebars.

    I have the Hopnel bag. It is $22 on Amazon. That $100 price is crazy. It is a good size for small items and a small route sheet.

    I may get one for myself, I like the clear window that protects the phone.

    Even though I have the tackform centermount I need someplace to put my phone when it rains but can still see the maps on it.
