I've been using a perforated, rubberized material sometimes known as "mover's cloth" to lay on my tank before putting my mag tank bag down. I've been doing this since somewhere around 1998 and never had a problem. I am almost never without a tank bag on my Ducatis.Don, I love the Sucher Seat and need one. Ever see any around?
I've decided that if I can't stash it under the seat (or under the seat cover) it isn't going on the ride. I used a newer Marsee tank bag for one ride and didn't like what it did to my tank.
This is the way to fly!
