Mine isn't all that large, so it doesn't effect steering or view at all.

There are six mighty strong magnets on mine. When I do use it, I make sure it's pulled down as tight as I can get it so as little wind as possible can get underneath it.
Occationally while riding, I might tug at it to be sure it's still on tight.

The way mine is made, when it's not on the tank, the magnetic flaps cover over each other, protecting them pretty good from the chance of picking up anything. But if they do, once you un-fold them, anything that might be stuck to them is on the outside
