best tank bag?

2nd day owning my duke 390 and i put around 150 miles on it. i have a big moto fizz tank bag that i bought for another bike. this bag is nice if you have a metal tank, but it can also be used with clips and straps. i had a jacket stuffed in there for most of my ride. it was a little tough to get my foot over the bag to get off and on the bike.
i'm sure someone in this forum could point me in the direction of a great, quality tank bag that can hold more than just my wallet. i want something that could fit my lunch, a bottle of water, and a few other small items, phone, pack of cigs, whatever.

here's my bike all loaded up today.
the second pic is showing a seat cushion to try and help with the pain of the stock seat. i have ordered the upgraded ktm seat. this pad was only $15 so i scooped it up.

i am unfamiliar with wolfman. are they all good with the duke, or certain ones, or what?
ideally, i'd like a bag where i can grab it and go, and not have to mess with 3 feet of straps.

thanks. i added the blackhawk bag by wolfman to my amazon bike list. on friday, i'm ordering the vagabond tail tidy, convex bar end mirrors, adjustable folding levers, and the "aryourshop" windscreen.
maybe on the paycheck after that, i'm getting that tank bag.

Here's mine with a Givi tankbag, the great thing is that it won't scratch the tank.



No contact between tankbag and tank.

I like large tankbags. They not only carry stuff, they block the wind. The only downside of a large bag is you make contact with it when you stand. (Go small and tall off-pavement.)

I have a big Wolfman on my GS, but snagged the KTM bag for my Duke. The mounting harness is great on the rear, but needs additional buckles on the front for easy removal. Nevertheless, I've learned how to deal with it when I refuel.

Love having lots of pockets. One for my iPhone, one for my wallet, the rear one for my GDO, etc. And the rear net is cool for ear plugs and an additional Caterpillar O-ring (the $1.00 throttle lock).

Looks like it would work better on the tail.

Matt, Before you order the vagabond tidy tail, check it out carefully. I believe the Vagabond is exclusively for the RC, and does not fit the Duke. You might want to look at EVO Tech or R&G.

Cheers, Will
