What instead of a tank bag ?

I personally don't like tank bags and was wondering what, if any, options are out there to have a small or medium bag that could be setup on back seat or tail.Padded bag a bonus but not must have. Easy accessibility to contents (zippered lid/top) instead of straps is required.

I already have a Kriega US30 and Vario side cases for rest of the gear. Any help is really appreciated.

Pelican with ram mounts on the bottom to attach to the frame.

I mounted a small wolfman tank bag, which was said to not interfere when standing. IT interferes. I am going to try some of those tank "saddle" bags. I never touch the front part of the tank.

Sometimes I throw a small soft "trunk" on the back. I do have a mini stock rack. Padded and nice. Would have liked less zippers and pockets.

Small enough that I can swing a leg over it if I am carefull and doesn't get int eh way too much when I hang my ass back on steep decents. Still it is noticeable if I am doing a hard trial ride and need my "cockpit" space.

i had a pelican box mounted as a rear top box while on a "tour" once. Great having a lid and water proof box. But needed to step through to mount. And my back pack + the box would limit my movement on trails.

I'm a big fan of my Wolfman Wolf Tail. Mounts easily and very securely with the bungees and hooks. Holds a lot of gear without being too bulky.

A cheap solution is a soft sided cooler. Waterproof too.

I switched to crash-bar bags as a I got tired of my tank being scratched to shit from a tank bag.

Keeps the weight low, I can carry as much or MORE stuff, and they are not in the way to fuel the bike.

Brady Storm, one of the vendors on this forum sewed em up for cheap. Great work.

Bag ideas

I attached Moose Racing Bighorn fuel tank saddle bags to the plastic that shields my radiator and fuel tank. I fastened them directly to the plastic because they would otherwise hang against your knees with the straps. Bags are designed for an ATV, but worked perfect for my KTM. They taper away from your knees. Condura with top zippers. Put 1 gallon freezer bags inside to hold misc stuff. Easy to get to.

Here is another idea considering your fuel tank set-up.
