Is there a reason you're sticking to tailbags? What about a small tankbag?

I could carry everything you mentioned in a Joe Rocket Manta XL (3 32oz powerades, small tools, wallet, keys, cell phone, ipod, garage opner, ipass, etc).

Not sure if your tank can use a magnetic one, but there are similar strap on ones as well.

I use a small strap mount tank bag and strap it to my rear passenger seat. I've got a cortech super mini I've been running for a couple of years with no issues.

If you ride like there's no tomorrow, today will be a BLAST!

The tank bags I've seen are a little bulky for my taste, that's why I was looking for a tailbag..I guess I didn't look good enough because that Joe rocket xl is not bad at all!

There's pics in the after ride reports, you can see how people set up their bikes.

I know this forum is a few months old, but I've got to give a +1 to TheCycleGuys Fast Pack tail bag. Got one on my 675 and it's super handy.

+1, but a necessary evil on 10 to 14 day trips. I have a power let in mine, so I can run my heated vest, charge various devices, etc. I have 3 now small, medium and large. I like the clear map sleeves too.
