Smile Tank bag for a '97 F3 ??

Need some help here people....

I'm looking to get a tank bag for my CBR600 but have no idea what to look for... I don't need anything huge, just enough to store a camera, phone, map and the other small crap I tend to carry when biking.

Main questions are...

- do they obstruct the main intrument cluster ?
- which mounting method is better - magnetic or strap ?
- am I going to have problems getting my arms around the bag when leaning forward ? (I'm guessing not)

I've found a bag by RoadGear which I think will do the job (http://www.roadgear.com/catalog/detail.cfm?Prod_ID=42) but I'm open to suggestions.

Thanks all !

Joe Rocket makes two types of bags. They have a smaller bag (probably the one you are looking for) with a plastic top to place a map in. You can check them all out here

As far as them getting in your way, of course the bigger ones will not allow you to tuck and I am sure will block the gauges. There shouldn't be a problem with something like the Blaster tank bag.

Hope this answered your questions
