Big & Bang For The Buck. Fits BMW F650GS Twin Nicely.
I wanted to upgrade my Nelson Rigg CL-1010 mini tank bag for my 2011 BMW F650GS Twin bike. Those familiar with this GS bike know the faux tank is relatively short and curves down towards rider. I also have a GPS RAM mount in the center of my handlebar I didn't want to block. I need a tank bag with a front height shorter than 5" inches. So, after researching all the major brands, I decided the Nelson Rigg CL-1050 Adventure touring was the best size and value. I was pretty happy with the CL-1010 construction. So, I took a chance the CL-1050 Adventure would have similar construction. I haven't been disappointed. While not identical, the CL-1050 sides have reinforced sidewalls, which help keep the tank bag shape. So, it doesn't look like a duffel bag when empty.
The CL-1050 Adventure fits the F650GS Twin perfectly. The front (facing handlebar) clears the center mounted ignition key and auxiliary power adapter outlet; a little cramped with my Ram GPS mount, but still accessible. The back (facing rider) sits just over the threshold of the tank and the enduro stock seat. The bottom contour of the tank bag fits snugly over the slopped tank. Soft and not skid bottom. When you place the tank bag on the tank, the top map compartment is level (parallel) to the ground. The straps keep the tank bag securely on the tank. Very little front/back or side to side movement. I initially pulled the rear frame straps too tight. I then loosened them up. DO NOT pull the straps down too tight. Otherwise you may tear the D rings off the bag. After mounting the bag, I took it out for a 200 mile ride. The tank doesn't move at all. Nice and secure.
Oh, the bag itself. Plenty of room for holding items for extended trip. For me 14.6 Liter is just right. Not too small and not too big for weekend / extended trips. Nelson Rigg recommend keeping the weight of contents below 10 lbs. The inside of the bag seemed to be lined with a soft fabric. The exterior material is made out of a strong ballistic nylon. The bag comes with a waterproof cover with a clear map area and ability to expand the rain cover when the tank bag is expanded. I haven't had a chance to test the rain cover. I always put critical electronics in a zip lock bag anyhow. The bag also comes with shoulder strap. Not sure if I'll ever use it. My tank bag usually stays on the tank permanently.
Although, I just got the CL-1050 Adventure Touring tank bag, I am extremely happy with the fit for my bike, shape, size, features, rain cover, and ease of mounting. I would recommend this product to others. The zippers might not be YKK, but you cannot beat the CL-1050 tank bag for value, features, and construction.

I wanted fit.
The bag fit my VStom perfectly. The slope of the tank and angle cut of the bag fits perfectly. Just what I was looking for. The bag never once gave me trouble on my 4500 mile trip this past summer.. Great looks and great quality too.

Fits Suzuki DL1000 perfectly
I bought the Nelson Rigg CL-1050 Adventure Touring Tank Bag for my 2012 Suzuki DL1000 Vstrom right before a 1,600 ride. It fits the Vstrom perfectly, looks great, is well made and is a great value.

As other reviewers have mentioned, the rain cover seems cheaply made and not on par with the good quality of the bag itself. However, I have done a 300 mile all-day ride in the driving rain without the rain cover on. While some moisture worked its way into the map pocket, my phone, wallet, spare gloves and notepad inside the bag stayed perfectly dry. I may end up just spraying the bag with 3M Scotch-guard (or some other waterproofing) and not even bother with the rain cover.

Overall, it does exactly what I am looking for and I would highly recommend it.

bag is great, rain cover - not so good
I am very happy with the bag having just finished a 2500 mile trip through good weather and bad. The rain cover that comes with the bag is poorly made. However, even riding in driving rain and wind for many hours, the bag w/o the rain cover never did leak. For the money and for sloped tanks - the bag is great.

nelson riggs tank bag
excellent bag for the money -fits my bmw gs 1200 fine. The mounting is fine about like every other bag but not as good and easy to disconnect as a BMW bag. BMW uses a rear zipper and is easy to use for gas fillups. The bag is excellent quality and should last a long time. Nice feature it comes with a rain cover.

CL 1050 on Super Tenere
I was looking for a tank bag for my Super Tenere that I could use to hold my DSLR camera during the COBDR and after looking at much more expensive bags decided to give this one a try.
What an excellent choice! It fits the bike perfectly, is very water resistant without the rain cover, and did a great job of protecting my camera.
Its easier to gas up the bike than with a magnetic bag in my opinion and won't blow off the bike like my magnetic one did (multiple times).
My bike got sleepy on the trip and the bag stayed in place with camera protected inside.
Its a great bang for the buck and definitely recommend it.

Great versatile bag
I purchased this bag for my BMW F650GS (single). It fits the tank very well, and the two sizes (collapsed and expanded) are "just right". I like the way the carrying handle is situated on the bag as well; off the bike it's easy to carry it and a helmet with one hand (chin strap on the helmet closed of course).

Worked awesome
Good bag for long trips. Keep in mind that it has to be strapped to the bike so it's not a good bag for taking on and off. I bought it just a few months ago for a 7000+ mile trip on a 2013 vstrom and it was pretty awesome. Held up well and comes with rain cover. Only annoying part is you have to unclip everything to get the rain cover on and you have to unclip at least one clip to fill up the tank. Would reccomend.

Nice bag
I needed a new tank bag as my old magnetic bag wouldn't work on my new FJ-09. This bag fits perfectly is easy to install and holds a good amount of stuff. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that one of the zipper pulls came off the first day of use. Once the first one came off I grabbed a pair of pliers and crimped all the other pulls tight so hopefully they will stay on. Other than that, it is perfectly suited for my bike and would work great on any "adventure" style bike. I would recommend this bag, but make sure the zipper pulls are crimped down tight so they don't come off.

Basic tank bag
After a long trip to Alaska, this bag worked fine on my Gen II KLR650. Lots of room even without expanding it. Good size map pocket and clear rain cover allows maps to be read in any weather.

I can see areas that could use improvement...
1. I replaced the straps with a set of magnets because they're much easier to remove at gas stops, etc.
2. The rain cover uses 4 elastic loops to stay in place and you cannot access to bag without removing at least 2 of them (straps/magnets again) How about velcro tabs instead?

This is my first ever tank bag, I was a bit on a budget but really wanted one for my trip to Dead Horse. The bag seemed quite nice for the price, with the features and size I wanted. Key West to Dead Horse and back and I have no complaints! It comes with a rain cover, which I used on more than one occasion and all my items stayed dry. The strap system is easy to install and use and allowed for easy fill-ups by just unclipping one corner (closest to the seat) and pivoting the bag out of the way.

My wife needed a tank bag for her S1000XR. This works well, and had room for her purse as well as bottles of water.

Good price. Good reviews. Needed a tank bag that would better fit my Tiger 800 sloped tank. I have a Cortech 2.0 8l bag that works well but wanted something bigger for longer trips.

Best fit for my needs and the bike. Overall great bag and bargain if understand what you are getting. Only irritation is clip hooks for holding bag to straps are difficult to work with; not convenient for lifting getting bag off easily.

donald m on Mar 26, 2014
My main reason for this purchase was the nav/cell pocket in the map area. I don't have a lot of extra room for clamps and such on the handlebars of my DR650 so I thought this would work just as well

Will this work on a 2006 KLR 650? Does it have to be removed to access the fuel cap?
Thanks
A S on Jun 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this will work on a KLR (my previous bike was a KLR) and it covers the fuel cap. My procedure for fueling up is to loosen the two straps close to the seat so I can unhook the it at the front and swing it over the seat, leaving the cap exposed. Takes a little longer, but I really like the tankbag on my VStrom.
I want to know if this bag is better for my klr 650 or the wolfman explorer lite?
A S on Dec 20, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I considered the Exp Lite. but tried the Nelson first due to price and some (possibly) better features. One thing about the Nelson; it uses weird hooks for the mounting which are inferior to the usual side-squeeze clasps used on all other bags. I had to cut them off and install the side clasps. Things I like about the Nelson; fairly waterproof but includes a rain cover, it has a nice smart phone "holder" under the map window (but I need to run a power cord in to the bag to run the smart phone using the GPS), nice style and size especially with the expandable feature.

In all, I like the N-R but if it doesn't work out, than I'll get the Explorer lite.
Up to what size of map can fit in the map pocket? How about a ring bound atlas?
A shopper on Nov 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Useful space measures about 10 3/4" by 8 3/4". There is a full length (about 10 1/2") velcro flap to allow access to the map pocket. I owned another brand that the access opening was only 6" which made inserting the maps difficult. No problems with this model. As for the ring bound atlas...it might work if within those measurements but I can see the rings damaging/wearing thru the clear panel.
I have a 14 Vstrom DL1000AL4 will this bag fit OK?
Thomas H on Sep 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Thomas, I believe it will fit just fine! Cheers!
i would like to know if i can use the mobile when it is in the pocket, trough the map window. And could you give me the sizes of the pocket? Thanks
Nicolas L on Aug 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Nicolas, I'm not quite sure what you mean about using the phone. Or which pocket. There is a small phone pocket under the map pocket which will hold a relatively large phone. On the rider side of the bag there is another pocket which will hold a phone as well. I have found when I keep my phone in the map pocket it gets very hot from the Florida sun beating on it.

I keep my phone and an iPod in the3 main pocket and utilize the Bluetooth feature through a Sena SMH-10 headset. With this set up you can use your phone, any mapping/GPS app and an MP3 device.

I ride a BMW F650GS and the bag fits like a glove on the 'tank" of the bike utilizing supplied straps.

I hope this answers your question.
