The $20 DIY Tankbag Lock

I was fortunate a year or so ago to win a magnetic Recon 19 Bag by Rapid Transit but owning a BMW meant I had to strap it down and hassle with it every time I stopped for gas. It also rubbed on my paint which I wasn't very happy about. -So, it sat in the garage, unused, collecting dust.

Fast forward to a week ago. I'm about to go on a big trip and was dreading spending $200 on another tank bag so I could store my shit when it dawned on me.. 2 hours, a few beers, and a $17 Cortech Tanklock Ring later, here were the results.

This is going to make a great helmet/chest rest:

I took a bunch of pictures of the process so if anyones interested I can put together a little tutorial.
