I guess I should have been more clear. I do not remove my tank bag when I stop unless I am stopping for the night.
Just went on a one hour cave tour boat ride at Penn's Cave in Pennsylvania and left everything on the bike, helmets, jackets, tank bags, tail packs (as did the 8 other riders with me) and all our gear was there when we returned.
I would probably take my jacket and helmet with me if parking on the street in a major city, but would most likely leave the tank bag. Not much in there worth stealing. Side stand plate, rag and squirt bottle for cleaning windshield, a small bottle of water, paper map, note pad and pen, small bottle of hand sanitzer..... that's about it.

It doesn't matter what I ride, where I ride, how fast I ride, or how far I ride... it only matters THAT I RIDE...EVERY DAY. "Ferret"
