Wolfman Blackhawk Tank Bag
Very High Quality Tank Bag
Although I prefer magnetic bags, we own several bikes with plastic tanks. Although I considered one of the "gas cap lid" types of bags, they look kind of strange perched on the tank and this bag is a known quantity. I believe this is my fifth Wolfman bag. I especially like the little tank panniers, which are equally useful as small saddlebags on small dual sports. This bag is simply a high quality small tankbag. It is the perfect size for my F650gs BMW, but would work on any small or mid-sized dual sport. This isn't something you can ever wear out and it will look new after years of use.

Good tank bag for everyday use
Like all Wolfman products, this is a high quality bag that you can tell will last a long time and can take a beating as soon as you pull it out of the box. I bought the Blackhawk model due to it's 8-liter size. It is perfect for everyday use. This is a small bag, so probably not the best for long trips. Perfect for single day rides and commuting. I have it on a Triumph Explorer 1200, and it fits and looks great on my tank. Installation was a snap. The features are very nice. For the price I wish it would have come with a waterproof cover, but you can purchase those separately. Hence my rating of 4 of 5 for "Bang for the Buck."

All I need
I don't like tank bags. They tend to obscure the instrument panel, slide around on the tank, sag, not to mention being an eye sore.
I needed a bag that would perform utilitarian tasks keeping frequently required items handy such as sun/eye glasses, toll money, small point and shoot camera, and a charging station for my phone and iPad. The Blackhawk allows me to put my iPad inside and run a USB cable through a gap in the zipper. The small external pocket on the side facing the rider will accept my iPhone and likewise allows me to charge it.
Mounting it onto my '07 GS is easy. The bag does not slip due its grippy bottom. Fueling is easy with no drama.
I seldom use maps while riding since I have a gps so I can't really comment on the map pocket accept to say its not large enough to use most state map's single panel but that's not uncommon.
The Blackhawk's construction is top quality. Its not billed as waterproof and I haven't experienced rain yet. I have a dry bag that fits inside the bag to protect my electronics.
I'm a tankbag convert as long as its a Blackhawk.

Great bag, good quality - made in USA
Nice size, heck it fits a six pack too. The zippers are really nice and easy to handle, especially with gloves on.
I just wish I could lock it somehow onto the bike somehow so someone can't unsnap it and walk off with it.

Good small size tank bag for R1200GS
I purchased this bag because I was looking for something smaller and less expensive than the BMW bag. It's just the right size for sunglasses, visor clean, helmet lock and phone and fits nicely on my 2009 R1200GS . No difficulty finding mounting points in the front and rear of the tank. The 4 point mounting points create a stable mount with no movement. The only improvement I would like to see is the addition of a protective sleeve on the from mounting straps because it looks like these could rub the on the paint. I also purchased the rain cover which is tailored to fit the Blackhawk with no excess material. The rain cover kept the bag dry through a one hour rain shower. I'm very happy with this purchase. Good workmanship, heavy duty zippers with pill cords. Nice job Wolfman!.

Great fit for my R1200RT
The fit and functionality is great. Love the detachable map pocket that I only use for long trips. Removal to fuel is a small hassle.

This is the perfect size tank bag for my BMW F700GS. With the sloped tank, the angled base fits nice, ending right at the top part of the seat. When riding it doesn't interfere with any of the instrument panels. Finally I have the Givi V46 top box, and this bag fits perfectly side by side with my large Shoei helmet.

Works well on a BMW F800GS
Just got the bag before a 2500 mile ride. Wasn't sure between this bag and the next size bigger but I didn't want any interference while riding off road and needed some thing small enough to take off carry around if needed. Perfect for some tools, wallet, cell phone, microfibers, etc. Had way more room than I needed and never once did it get in the way while standing. Really like the zippers and the material on the bottom that keeps it from sliding. Never moved at all and don't have to worry about messing up the bike's finish. Super easy to install and adjustable. Really like the quality of Wolfman over a Cortech I had on another bike. Thanks for a great product.
