New Tank Bag

Got a Nelson Riggs tank bag and I think it looks pretty good.

Looks great. Just curious why you didn't get a magnetic version.

I make deliveries on my bike... I often have to run inside a building for about 5 mins or so and I wanted to be able to leave the tank bag on. The magnetic one would get lifted quickly if I left it unattended.

That's a good sized bag. Do yourself a favor and check under the bag after every trip. Road grit gets under them and grinds into the tank, ruining the paint.

That exact thing happened to me the first weekend out on mine. Just a 1 hour long ride down the highway. Scratched and chipped the tank up pretty good unfortunately. I now put a soft towel between the tank and the bag and seems to stops anything harmful from getting in there and scratching it all up.
