Best Tank Bag for Brutale?

Do not know which category this should be posted in. It is not really "gear" nor is it "customization", so I will post it here. The Brutale has a plastic tank so a magnetic bag is out. Bags with straps seem a pain. So it would seem that one of the bags that have a gas cap connection would be best. Marsee and Bags Connection from Twisted Throttle both have these. I am currently in the midwest can not find a dealer where I can see these in person.

Size is also an issue, want to hold glasses, hat (balding head), small flashlight, toll money, lock and plastic coated wire to secure helmet and jacket. Big enough for the stuff, but not so big as to hide the lines of the MV tank.

Any recommendations on the best tank bag for this bike? Thank you for your input.

I like the way the RKA fits. I used one on a Brutale on two different trips.

With the seating position and handlebars, I honestly didn't even notice it when riding, even expanded. I do notice this same bag on the F4, but not the Brutale. Here's a couple of pictures I took on my last trip.

Those are pretty sweet fitting. Good tips! Watch out for scratches though.

The RKA one has rubberized material on the bottom to help prevent scratches and to keep the bag from sliding around. Magnetic bags are a little more dangerous in this respect, since small bits of metal can get picked up. I was warned about this when I got my first magnetic tankbag many years ago, so I always check. Staples are relatively common when I put my tankbag down at work.
