Thanks for the pics... What tank bag is that? I'm trying to figure out just how wide of one will reasonably work with a 1200R, since the tank tapers as it gets closer to the seat. Mike

I've never had a problem with the magnetic surface scratching the paint - I'm usually pretty careful to keep it clean. there is a rubber handle on the front of the bag that flaps in the wind and scuffs the tank unless it tuck it inside the flap for the map sleeve. I *almost* always remember to do this...
