Nelson Rigg CL-1050 Adventure Touring Tank Bag 4.5 5 11 11
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. September 28, 2015
Great fit for Vstrom The install was simple, removing to fuel is less of a hassle than I thought it would be. Very good storage capacity for the price. The only negatives are glare reflected from the map cover at low sun angles, which would happen for any map cover like this, and a lack of a power port hole. I have not used the rain cover yet. August 30, 2015
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. August 25, 2015
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. June 15, 2015
Good fit on a sloping VStrom gas tank. I needed a a tank bag for my camera gear to fit my 2013 Suzuki VStrom. The bag can almost fit a Canon 5DII DSLR with a 24-70mm lens with room for a 70-200mm lens in the unexpanded mode, though it's tight. It's perfect when expanded and allows me to pad it with additional foam in this mode as added protection for the gear. Will fit with either lens on the camera. Thought the expanded height would bother me while riding but it doesn't seem to be an issue as far as being to tall. Great to have access to the camera so convenient! The bummers: 1) Arrived missing some of the straps, Revzilla had Nelson Rigg send them within a week. 2) 3 of the zipper pulls fell off the zippers in the first half hour of unpacking and handling the bag. I had to crimp the zipper and zipper pull with pliers, this seems to be working so far, no lost zipper pulls yet. I'd be willing to pay an extra $5 for decent zippers. But this is a low cost bag.

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? July 21, 2014
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. April 14, 2014
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. September 16, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Rivers L: The size, pockets, and map sleeve are exactly what I wanted. Nov 6, 2015
V M: 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. Sep 10, 2015
Detlef S: Was looking for a tank bag that would fit and work good for BMW GS. The comment section sold me on this product. Nov 11, 2014
FABIO G: Going on a trip to Ushuaia (southern Argentina). Renowned brand, probably a great product. Good reviews on the internet Oct 30, 2014
Daniel J: This bag fits my motorcycle perfectly, the quality is good, it looks very nice Sep 30, 2014
Luke L: needed an affordable tank bag. Hope it's a good one. May 25, 2014
donald m: quality,price and a need for a back up less expensive tank bag Mar 26, 2014
Nicholas C: 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 Feb 16, 2014
A S asked: Will this work on a 2006 KLR 650? Does it have to be removed to access the fuel cap?
Jun 26, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Ken K: 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. Jun 26, 2014

A S: Thanks. Jun 26, 2014
Nicholas C: It will most definately work with the KLR. It's got a pretty good universal fit on adventure bike tanks. As for having to remove it to get to the gas cap, yes, you will have to move it to fill up. However it just clips in place and is very easy to take on and off. Jun 26, 2014
Reply to Nicholas Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Jack P: It does cover the fuel cap but you just un clip one of the front connection hooks and can quickly and easily fill up and get back on the road. Same for the aftermarket oversized tank. Jul 21, 2014

Timothy L: It should work on a KLR 650, and you do need to remove it to access the gas tank, or disconnect one set of straps and flip it out of the way. Jun 28, 2014

A S: Thanks for the replies. I bought one and it looks like it will work just fine. Jul 22, 2014

A S asked: I want to know if this bag is better for my klr 650 or the wolfman explorer lite? Dec 20, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
bob h: 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.

John W: I have a Wolfman Explorer on my KLR 650 and the Nelson Rigg on a Husqvarna Strada. The Wolfman products are made from heavier material and, I think it's more suitable for use in off road situations. If your riding is mainly on the street, then the Nelson Rigg would be fine. There are no internal dividers in the Nelson Rigg to keep items from grouping together at the back. Fit on the tank should be good with either bag. Dec 21, 2013
Reply to John Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Terrence Y: Hi, I don't have experience w/ the wolfman product as I purchased the Nelson Rigg bag. I have been very pleased with it. The rain cover is a joke and not well designed, however , I have ridden through some hellish downpours without it and the Nelson Rigg didn't leak. Not the most advanced design but solid and worth the $. My $0.02 Dec 20, 2013
Reply to Terrence Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Timothy L: It looks like they are similar bags. I used the Rigg on a MotoGuzzi Norge and it worked perfectly for gloves, glasses, phone, GPS, camera, water bottle, whatever I needed to have handy on the tank. If I had to choose a bag again, I would buy the Rigg. Dec 21, 2013

good, you'd think it came wih the bike off the showroom floor.

A shopper asked: Up to what size of map can fit in the map pocket? How about a ring bound atlas? Nov 29, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
James C: 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. Nov 29, 2014
Reply to James Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
John H: You can fit a 8" x 10" map page in the window. I have never used a ring bound atlas, so I can't help on that question.What I typically do is plan where I want to go on Google Map, make a sketch of the route and put the sketch in the window. Hope this helps. Nov 29, 2014
Reply to John Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Kameran A: My experience is 8" inch X 10" inch because of the rounded corners. Sliding a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper is a bit tricky. Nov 29, 2014

donald m: You can fit a standard state map - The bag is well constructed and easy to mount! Great bag for the money. Nov 30, 2014
Reply to donald Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Kristed S: It's 9x11. I doubt a big ring bound atlas would fit. I usually get 1 & 1/2 pages of a folded map in it. Nov 29, 2014

Nicolas L asked: 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 Aug 1, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Shawn B: 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.
