Default Roll Bag

I think I've seen some pics of guys on the forum with a roll bag mounted to their forks under the headlight. Can anyone who has done this let me know what brand of roll bag they use, whether they like it, and how much (if any) it affects the handling of the bike? Were any marks left on the fork, etc, after riding?

Appreciate the help!

Mounted mine on the front downtubes with some tape to protect the paint.
I didn't want to risk marking the forks.

I'm interested in doing this but cant find the right bag.
I'd like to see a nylon bag.

River Road brand. Velcro straps. Pretty decent quality. About $ 40. A little hard to get into under the headlight, but I didn't like it above the light. It's great for tools or other items that you don't need frequent access to. If you need easier access, I'd mount it on the down tubes.

Check out leatherup.com also they have some cheap bags, great quality and no issues with mine. I have mine mounted under headlight and it's not left any marks on forks or anywhere.

Forget where i got my bag but i also bought chrome exhaust champs that were size of forks. Connected a flat bar to the clamps and drilled holes in the bar and in the back of the bag. Used rubber washers on inside and outside of bag to make it water tight.

Man i miss my bike !!!! That thing was sexy ! Lol

Mine came with the bike. It has two leather straps that go around the fork tubes. Only issues I've had is the slipped down cause I didn't want to over tighten the straps. I use one tie wrap each to hold them. And being under the light it's a little pain to get some things on or out. I use it for paperwork and my Allen wrenches mostly.

Bikes looking good Night!

Come to think of it my bag had two places inside of it to slip the straps through, by that I mean I can mount the bag straps vertical or horizontal depending on where I want to attach it, and I have never had a problem with water getting into it and I have rode through some torrential downpours, think the bag was like $20 from leatherup.com, think I have seen some say that Wal Mart has some for around that price.
