I dont know anything about tank bags but I have a Cortech sportbike tail bag and it works great. One thing to keep in mind is, how long will you have your current bike? A lot of the new bike have plastic tanks and your magnatic tank bag wont work.

I have a Held bag... I love it... hasn't left any mars on my tank either... I actually feel like I forgot something when I don't have it on...

I haven't used any tail bags... but I'm gonna be getting a set of saddle bags and a tail bag for my trip down...

I use a Endurance Cargo bag (from Cycle Gear) with the addition of a Bungie net it's a Tail bag, a Tank bag and a Backpac, and I use it weather I'm riding or not...

I'm looking at tail bags. Don't care for the tank bags, as they just look awkward, even though everyone says they don't get in the way. I just don't want a trunk or some old school bedroll on the rear end.

I have this one in black. Magnetic tank bag with rubber underneath to prevent scratching. Doesn't hold much, but I usually put keys, phone, wallet, etc in it for longer rides.

I like it. could never use it on mine. My clipons are really low. Well... maybe I could rest my chin on it. Nah... might fall asleep on long ride. I'll stick with what I have.

yeah you'd be fine with it in the collapsed position (pictured) but you'd have trouble if you expanded it!

Icon has another one out that I think I'll be picking up..the "urban" tank bag... it's sweet cause you can use it as a tank bag, or unclip the straps to use it as a back pack, and it carries your helmet when you're off the bike! I think it's an all in one good combo!

Tank bag!! A must have!

I had a Joe Rocket one. It was nice. I loved having it on there. Could rest my arm on it then my helmet on my arm and it was like having a pillow there! For those long highway rides home.

I got one for Christmas and just tried it out over the past few days and there's a problem. The bag rides up to my rear rather than hanging out on the passenger seat. Since I have a fender elim and there's the undertail exhaust, any suggestions on how I prevent the movement of this thing towards me? Its kind of a PITA.

The ones with the map display case on top is very handy for SMR type rides.
