    This is the best TB I have used.
    It's easy to take off and replace. Doesn't touch the tank, is well made and has a couple handy features like the silver interior and the clear top.
    They are pricey, but you get quality.

    Jeff:

    Any issues with interference with the bars or controls as an earlier poster mentioned?

    TIA,

    I can't believe how incredulous I am.

    I'm a fan of Marsee tank bags. They're well made and stand up to a lot of use. I have a Marsee 11 ltr Pocket Rocket Corona tank bag on my 12GS. Marsee's Corona system is a fine substitute for magnetic bags if your tank isn't steel and you don't like straps.

    But, if I had your '02 RT, I'd take advantage of all that steel and get a Marsee magnetic of whatever size suits you. For years I used the same Marsee 20 ltr magnetic tear drop tank bag on my '94 Honda CB1000, then on my '03 R1150R. I still have it tucked away in my garage waiting for the day I bring home a bike with another steel tank!

    Grant,

    Don't need a steel tank. Just glue some super magnets under your tupperware. I did on my 97 RT and it works great. Just be sure that your magnets in the bag are all the same polarity, otherwise parts or all of your bag may "fly off" rather than stick.

    Never thought of that! Does JB weld stick to Tupperware well?
    Just a thought tho. Will the super magnets affect any electronics under there?
    I have such magnets (will hold up 7 Lbs)

    I have a magnetic bag on my RT, had it on a Goldwing, too. A single strap around the steering head is all that's ever been needed to hold it in place. The weight of the bag has always kept on the tank. Flip it up out of the way to gas up. The only niggle is that hard braking will cause the bag to slide forward; might hit your horn button, or change the ESA setting, etc. It's an Oxford Sport bag; they're on ebay regularly for around $60-70, well made, convert to daypack. etc.

    +1 for RKA... Great bags and super nice folks. I have a small Shiloh Road on my 12GS, along with a full set of RKA pannier liner bags. Good stuff all around.

    I roughed up the bottom side and used latex caulk.

    Not electronics close to the gas tank that I know of.
