Get one of THESE to stick under your tank bag. Backpacks are ok but can cause back pain and could be dangerous if you came off the bike.

I bought some of the stuff Paul has shown you from Wilkos for about £2 and you just cut it to fit, protects your tank a treat.

Ventura rack, not cheap but once fitted you hardly know its there and it doesn't spoil the lines of the bike. With it you can get a variety of packs from sandwich bag to tea chest, takes seconds to put the pack on and you don't worry about whether its secure or not once its on.

Or top box is another idea, bulky alternative but plenty of room and keeps your gear dry.

Wouldn't rush to put gloves in my food though, they'll taste funny and you could lose your grip on the bars if it has an oily dressing on it. LMAO

Not to mention how awful gloves taste if mistaken for a sandwich Laughing 

Top box is very good, you can keep stuff secure - but it isn't cheap to setup.
