Tank Bag for the GT 2006/2007 model

I am not crazy about the BMW bag I saw.

What are the other options? I saw the BigMak but I am not crazy about the arms when the bag is not on the bike.

Comments?

Chicane makes a nice tank bag at a reasonable price.

LuggageLocker.com makes a great tank bag. It locks to the gas cap and does not touch the tank. You can buy an expansion section to increase your carrying capacity.

Check out Pirates Lair. They have a really cool new bag that "floats" above the tank.

Bike looks better without the tank bag.

I had one of those Big Mack removable bags for nearly a decade on my old RT. Whenever I got off the bike, I had to either carry the bag with me or hide it in the trunk as it had too much expensive stuff in it.

Since I was always hiding it in the trunk anyway, I gave up on it for the GT. The space I normally would have hidden it in the trunk is where I keep all the junk from the tank bag now - or in the lockable glove box. Small pricey stuff (cameras, phone, etc) I carry in my jacket pockets.

Makes it so much easier by not having one.

I also have the Chicane, Canyon EX. I think it looks better on the GT than most, but as GMack said, tank bags can be a pain in the arse. Imho, the good points outweigh the bad.
