Rapid Transit Commuter Tank / Tail Bag
Very Versetile, Holds More Than You'd Expect
I use this on my 2004 cbr600rr as an alternative to riding with a backpack. It works perfectly to carry water, some food, wallet, phone, garage opener, jacket liner, and even all of the girlfriends stuff when she's on the back. Also the bag sits at a height that allows me to lay my chest and chin on it in a full tuck, rather than having to use my neck to hold my head up. The only issue I've had with it is figuring out how to mount the rear of the back, Im sure if I break down and buy some suction cup straps it would make it easy, but for now I have the front secured with a strap around the steering stem and the rear with velcro glued to the bag and the tank

So far I like it
Got this for the V Rod and it so far is working out. Only a couple hundred miles ridden with it but it seems to be stable and does not move around or interfere with the bike. The problem with most tank bags on a V Rod is the magnets don't stick due to the aluminum air box cover where the steel tank would be on most bikes. The straps on this bag are ok and my only wish is that they had four individual straps instead of running them around from side to side.

I purchased this bag because I it had great reviews and the price was right. What I found was the bag to be a little larger than expected. I had hoped it would fit a couple of my different bikes but find it too big for my dual sport but seems to work well with the larger flat topped tanks. I find it hard to rate durability since I've only had the bag for a week or so but it appears to be durable.

Great size, relatively easy install
It took me a while to install this on my VRod but once I figured out the best place to run the straps it worked out really well. Spacious and functional. I would recommend this tank bag.

I've used this bag for a few thousand miles and haven't had any complaints. It's about the same price as the Recon bag but is much larger. It stores a great deal of stuff without any issues. I found that when you fill up it is easiest to unclip the rear straps and one side of the front strap that goes around the head tube, then you can rotate the bag up onto the handlebars during refueling.

I have nothing bad to say about this bag. For my large tanked bike the fit is excellent. I had to use the straps and clips as my tank is non-metal. I just rode cross country and it held all the things like camera, phone, binoculars, writing pads, pens, sunscreen, etc. etc, etc, that I needed to get at on the quick. The map window size was ideal plus I was able to slip my GPS into that same window when I needed it. The rain cover feature was used more than once and it kept the contents dry during the storms along the way. All around I give it an A+.

Perfect tank bag
This is the perfect tank bag for me. I am a new rider and was uncomfortable with the idea of a large tank bag. So far I have been able to get everything I want in this bag with no problem.

This bag works great for me. Plenty of size, but not too big. I ride a z1000 and it does not interfere with steering or controls. I can see it slightly interfering on a supersport that sits fairly low. I work out after work and I can fit a towel and change of clothes into the bag without unzipping the expansion. Has pockets inside for papers, cards, all kinds of stuff as well as the small outside pocket where i put my phone. As long as you can find a good place to mount the straps I definitely recommend getting this tank bag.
