Tank pannier?

Anyone use a tank pannier on their DRZ?   I'm looking for something simple, cheap, and not too large....just want to carry a water bottle and maybe some misc stuff.  I already have a Wolfman Blackhawk tank bag, which is awesome, but I'm thinking about some type of (cheap) tank pannier to hold some water bottles and whatnot.  What do you guys use, if anything?

 

                      Thanks in advance,

Most folks swear by the wolfman explorer lite as a tank bag for the DRZ.  

Sadly, it's not cheap (price) for what it is.  

I'm also eagerly looking for some answers for a cheap tank bag.

I have the Wolfman Blackhawk tank bag, and it IS awesome. What I'm asking about here is tank panniers, though.

Thanks,

Pommel bags are inexpensive and allow you to carry extra gear low and forward out of the way.

Pommel bags?   

There are super cheap tank bags for ATV available at Walmart in the US that work, but I found they interfered with my legs.

Essentially the same thing, yes.

So those didn't work too well for you?

No, not really.

So cheap though... :/

I picked these atv tank panniers up for like 5 bucks at a tool store. Same thing as everlast though. They just seem in the way. My brother has a set i believe made by tusk on his dr650 that seem to work well and do not interfere too much.20160112_174846.jpg

Pannier is french for basket. In terms of motorcycle luggage, a pannier is generally a hard case.

Yeah, really, I don't need much storage at all.  I'm mostly set.  I just wanted something that I could put a water bottle into, really.  I remember seeing the Tusk brand ones and they looked OK.  I'll have to look at those again....

I have the ATVLogic tank panniers which are decent enough although I will modify them with straps and quick release buckles for better mounting on the bike and attaching a small tank bag.

Pommel= saddle horn bag. They are built a bit more sturdy and more size selection.

Thanks for the city boy translation.  :)

What about using a hydration pack with some storage space instead? This one is a waist pack, and I wouldn't call it cheap if you're buying new. But there's a million-and-one varieties there, always something on closeout or look for used.
