Cortech Super 2.0 12-Liter Strap Mounted Tank Bag
Great for plastic tanks
Very secure straps to have the bag cover my plastic tank. Great Cortech quality and good design features.

Great mid-level tank bag
I bought this to slap on my Triumph Speed Triple and like it so much that I kept it when I bought my Multistrada. It works well on there, too.
It's a simple, nice looking tank bag that works well enough. The price is great.
My only gripe has been that the zipper jumped a tooth and was a little more difficult to use on occasion, but it's otherwise been a trooper and through a lot of adventures. The map pocket is really small and hard to access or store any real maps in there. Don't expect to hold your Butler maps with any sort of easy. At best, you could put your mobile phone in there when paired with bluetooth to see direcitons or calls. That's about it.
The waterproof cover worked through a solid day's rain in Oregon. The strap system is pretty tough and simple enough to install. I had no issue getting it to fit on both my Speed Triple and Multistrada.

Perfect size tank bag
At first I was struggling to mount the bag perfectly, but now that I found the way, it is very fast to put on and off. Inside spacious enough for everything I need easy to reach in my riding.

Works on a Buell XB12S
I was looking for something that could hold my work and personal tablets (with cases) amongst other small items. This was it. It takes some magic to thread the front strap around the neck of the bars and to fine-tune, but it's been great for the couple weeks I've owned it. If there was going to be a complaint, it's the lack of easy (snap) removal for the pad, but I can tuck it under my seat strap.

Great bag, minor details
Bought this to fit on my 1125CR. Fit is ok. Does cover the whole tank. It is too long with the full protective mat that goes between bag and tank. I fold the tongue underneath. The zipper seemed to get stuck in one area. After looking at the stitching I noticed there was some extra material that was getting stuck in the zipper. I trimmed it down and seems to be much smoother. Other that that, you get a lot for the money. Nice to have rain shield pocket . There are straps you can use to carry like a back pack although you would have to un attatch the protective mat each time which isn't very convenient. If you have an 1125CR, you won't be able to use the existing connection that you use with the Buell bag. At least not with the 12 liter back. I'm sure you can with the smaller 8 liter though. I would get the 8 liter next time just for that reason, but will stick with this one for now.

Product Delivered what its designed for.
Overall I'm very happy with this product. I needed something that I could toss keys, wallet and a few more things but didn't want a big bag in my way. The Cortech sits nicely on the tank without being in the way, I don't even know its there half the time. Only problem I came across was the center strap that goes between the seat and tank didn't have a cross bar on my Tiger 800 to attach too. I ended up purchasing a cable/wire securing loop from the Hardware store. Used a screw that was holding down a cover under the seat right near the tank to secure the loop. Fed the strap through and bingo!
Only other suggestion is better installation document.
Otherwise Great product!

Nice bag overall.
The bag is very useful on a 2013 Hyperstrada, but had to be modified to fit. Seat has to be removed in order to unclip bag. Only thing lacking are holes in the zipper tabs to run a wire lock through. Overall a good looking and useful tank bag.

Overall nice, but questionable rainproof
Bought this for a new Ducati Monster 1100EVO for mid-range trips & running around. Within a week, did a >1100 mile 3 day ride on twisties and also interstate runs. Installation fairly straightforward and the mounting base kept the unit very solid on all roads, and was better than another brand I used on my previous bike (using straps version since Ducati uses plastic tanks). Tank bag has a really nice look and fits the bike well. Like the front & bag external pockets for easy access items, plus good internal pockets.
The negatives: 1) the map pocket is really small. Not a large tank bag so didn't expect a huge map pocket but it narrows at the lower section cutting out some of the possible space. Plus the narrow lower end is where you feed the maps into the pocket, making it very difficult (not sure why the paper feed isn't from the wide upper end. 2) I went through lots of rain on the first trip and on the way back had internal wetness even though I used the rain cover. It's possible I may not have pulled it over all the way in front and don't recall any issue from rain 2 days before, but could be an issue (I'll update when using in the rain again). Also, since I'm on a naked bike I don't have body/windshield protection that most bikes do, so may not be an issue for others.
Overall, a pretty good bag and not very expensive. Not real big but some good features and looks nice on the bike.
