    What are some good tank bags for a scrambler? Was thinking the oem one but they're no longer available. Also, considering a magnetic bag. Unfortunately, the new cortechs don't interest me much because I liked the older, boxier shape.

    I need something easy on/off/gas up and around 12-16 liters. I've looked at wolfman explorer lite but it looks like a pita to attach and remove... I'm going to be using it for day rides and camping along with a couple of dry bags.

    I appreciate any suggestions :D

    I have a magnetic Triumph tank bag from a 1050 Tiger if you are interested.

    I use the Wolfman Timberwolf...

    One buckle to undo when filling the tank- not bad.

    I wasn't wild about the non-waterproofness, so I bought their rain cover, which works ok. Overall, the bag is a pretty high quality piece, and it has a well thought-out design. I imagine I'll keep it as long as I own the Scrambler.

    I used a Marsee magnetic. It worked great! Just make sure you keep the magnetic surfaces clean so you don't damage the soft paint.

    I've got the OEM one for the Scrambler/Bonnie. Used lightly for 1 season, sitting for 1 season. Then my bike met an untimely end and was written off.

    I had hopes of getting another Scrambler so I've held on to many of to many of the items I was able to take off, but it's unlikely I'll get one in the foreseeable future. I was just about to start listing them all within the next few weeks (tank bag, Arrow muffler, running lights from New Bonneville that were never installed etc).


    If you're interested, send me a PM and we'll come up with a fair price for the bag.

    I know that these are not very good pictures, but I ran the Cortech Mini Magnetic bag on my Scrambler when I had it. I've ran that bag on most of the bikes that I've had. Comes with a rain cover, strap to keep it secured to the steering head, and a rain cover. If you can find one I would recommend it as far as a magnetic bag. The closest thing in shape is something along the lines of the Wolfman Timberwolf, but it is a strap on bag.

    Here are a couple better shots of it, although on an SV.
