At least it appears semi-aerodynamic. I had a Chase Harper mag bag that was rectangular in shape and ugly as heck. But it was very functional and a great chest-rest. I also had saddlebags, but they interfered with the MiG high mounts. A tail bag works well too.

Even if it LOOKS aerodynamic, it is sitting in a still air pocket anyway, so it wont help aerodynamicly. I've always used my favorite backpack with magnets sewn on inside rubber. It is a great chest rest on trips, you just pack it with clothes.

someone was telling me if you don't one that really fits on your bike then it will scratch the hell at of the tank.

Might be a tad expensive for you to import, but I thoroughly recommend the Baglux system from the UK. Very secure and convenient

I use a Tour Master one. Just don't set your bag down on the ground. It will get dirty and scratch the tank. I always rub the bottom of the bag just prior to putting it on the tank. No scratches.

+1 on what motojoe said, dust off the tank as well. I've used a magnetic Tourmaster for 5 years now. Before that I used strap on tank bags since 1982. No scratches.

Yup, and I never jerk mine off the tank in a lateral direction. I glab the mag flaps and pull up. I've been really happy with mine. It was a gimme when I bought the Superhawk but works great on the VFR as well.

Cortech and Tour Master are good stuff. I also think Nelson-Rig has a tail bag/Saddlebag/Tank Bag combo. The Saddlebags will fit high-mounts.

I went back to the catalog to check the info above. Cortech has a rear set of saddles/tail for sportbikes, comes in solid red, blue or black. N-R has a set called the Silver Streak which is black bag with a silver bolt across it, comes in a set of tank,saddles/tail - WILL work with high-mounts.

Just bought the tank bag from the link at the top... It's awesome, it has some really cool features like, it can turn it to a back pack, it has a lot of pockets for all of your goodies and also a spot to put a hydro pack.

I'm very happy with my tank pack!!!!

+1 on the Tour Master. Its not pretty but its very functional. I'm a Function-over-Form kinda guy though. Not sure which model mine is as I bought it pratically new from a coworker for next to nothing since it didn't fit his bikes tank. If I expand it I think I could stuff a watermelon in it .
