Tank Bag Advice Needed

Aloha! I am about to buy a new tank bag and I am having a hard time deciding what to get. I plan on using it on my 2011 Kawasaki Z1000 for day trips. Would like for it to be a good size but it does not have to be huge. It would prefer a magnetic mount and it does not have to have a hydration bladder.

Cortech makes this 12 liter bag which seems to be what I am looking for:

They have a larger 18L bag but I am wondering if it might be too big. Does anyone have any experience with thess bags? Is there another brand that you riders have had good luck with? I owned a Dowco years ago and it did a good job unfortunately I didn't see any of theirs that I liked.

Thanks for your input!
Kirk

That looks like a nice bag, but After having several tank scatching bags over the years, I went with a bags connection bag W/locking tank ring. its quick release and comes off in snap at a gas station. I wont go back to anything else.

Ditto. I've got the Cortech with locking tank ring. Great bag, but fitting the bag is a little finicky. Worth it though. You can also buy add-ons to customize the Cortech
