Then bags the size of the CorTech 10L would work nicely, as long as they were elevated over the height of the fuel cap.

The foam is only 8" wide, and therefore fits only on the top, flat section of the tank. The magnetic "wings" fold down, around the left and right sides of the tank and thus extend over the L & R edges of the foam.

That's easy. Buy a cigarette lighter socket at the local LAPS. Add a 1A fuse and extend the wires back to the battery posts. Buy one of those automotive USB charger ports and plug it in.

Hope this helps.
