I just got a Tankbag and noticed that the magnetic that holds it onto the tank covers a couple of my gauges. Would this damage the gauges ?

I counted the toll plazas on the Turnpike between Homestead and Ft. Pierce to pick up I-95 up to Daytona and see either 8 or 9, That's a lot of quarters.

I don't think covering the gages is a problem but the vibration of the fabric and magnets can sure do a number on your paint .

I couldn't agree more with Jack. After you use the tank bag a while you won't be able to ride without it unless you don't mind looking down at the job it has done on your paint. Some people care and others don't but I can't even stand swirl marks on my tank let alone the abrasions you are sure to see. Your call but don't expect that foam backing to protect your finish. If you don't have a dark color with a shine, you may be able to get away with it but mine is black and Chromalure spears and would never consider a tank bag....Joe

Thanks for the quick responce, I Do Not want to mess up my paint so I will not use the tankbag. I have a Bellybag that I sometimes use for my Glock, I guess I will use that for my toll money, and I will take the mapcase off the tankbag and make something I can mount on my lower windshield.

Thanks again

I' m not trying to be funny but I have seen coin holders for motorcycles that fasten to the handle bars or whatever . I think I saw them advertised in the JC Whitney motorcycle catalog . Or you could carry a Derringer in your boot instead of the Glock and that would give you more room in your belly bag . I had a nice little holster sewed on the inside of my cowboy boots for mine and you hardly even know it's there until you need it .
