    For those of you that use a fork bag, either on the handle bars or windshield...What kind of stuff do you put in the bag? Does it vary from day to day vs long trip?

    Had one on my former Sporty & carried things for the trip (i.e. cell phone, wallet, registration/insurance card, glasses, etc.). Nice having a bagger now so I can also take the kitchen sink...;-)

    Windshield bag, extra sunglasses, small flashlight...; Fork bag, small tools plenty of space left...Rear sissy bag (tool roll inside , my roadside emergency kit)). My saddlebags have collapsable nylon bags to facilitate filling the empty bags.

    On my Street Bob, I use a tank bag instead of a fork bag. Carry all of the same stuff already listed, but it is within easy reach. Especially good for the camera.

    Tank bag is a VERY nice option...always had them on my ol' metric sportbikes to rest my chest on them...! Have not found one I like to put on the Sportster, as it does not have instrumentation or console access to obstruct. They may be held on by magnets, straps and protective pad to prevent scratching or scuff damage. Eclipse, Marsee, Chase Harper make them to name a few. They also make them modular and "stackable" and modular (for different heights, convenience and capacity). Most are Cordura/Nylon and water resistant. :D

    Jack,

    It is a Marsee 4 liter stash bag. Has a tunnel through the center to clear the console. Will not fit on the touring bikes due to the size of the console on them, but works great on the dynas.

    The price has gone up since I bought mine, but I'm sure you can find it cheaper if you hunt around some.
