Wolfman Blackhawk Tank Bag
Size is perfect for my DR650. Well made! Moved up size of bikes, so I moved up from Wolfman Enduro to Wolfman Blackhawk.

This is a great smaller sized bag.
The underside of it is some of the softest material you can find and you can trust it will not harm your motorcycle finish. it is also very grippy as it is a rubberized material, hence guaranteeing stability and no rubbing motion. I have it on a 2014 Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX and it fits great in size and slope adjust-ability. On the downside it is a simple soft bag (the mentioned soft rigidity is only on the perimeter of the bag) and as such the more you put in it the more cluttered your stuff is to find. I am going to remedy this with some simple foam dividers (the type you find in camera bags) velcroed together for adjustability as I see fit. This is the only reason I kept a star out of performance. I did have in there a full size digital SLR camera, sunglasses, wallet, keys, battery chargers, USB cables, helmet visor cloth cleaner, and everything fit well with room to spare. I just took it on an over 2200 miles trip through Washington, Oregon, California and Nevada in mostly dry conditions and it performed very well even when we ran into rain and hail (though not waterproof it is resistant enough to keep the interior dry for short periods of exposure to rain). Pockets are as described and zippers work very smoothly. It would be nice to have a waterproof cover for it, but again a little ingenuity can quickly remedy this. The bungee strap on top is extremely useful for temporarily securing your gloves while not riding. The key-ring inside is also a nice touch for ease of securing your mc or house keys or remote control for garage door openers. As mentioned by the manufacturer the Blackhawk utilizes the same 4-point harness as used on the Explorer Lite, Rainier, and Large Expedition Tank bags, making switching out bags a snap. This is a deal maker for me.

Perfect size for the essentials
This tank bag fits great on my 650GS and is just the right size for all of my essentials for quick trips. It will come in handy on longer rides for those things I need quick access to.
I like it so much that I'm planning to get a set of Wolfman soft saddlebags.

Not too small, not too big!
I really like this tank bag for my R1200GSA. The stock BMW tank bag was too big and got in the way when I am standing and leaning forward. This bag does not hamper your performance in any way.
The only complaint I have about the bag is that it is not waterproof and the waterproofing bag does not come with it. I rode through a down poor and the bag got soaked. Must say that the contents did not get soaked though...
Big enough to carry my phone, hat, wallet and small snacks easily. Probably could carry a little bit more but I hate overstuffing my tank bag.
It is well built. We'll see in due time, how well the zipper as well as the material holds up under use.
I would highly recommend the bag if you're looking for a bag that is not too big, not too small!

Does the job
Nicely put together, easy to install, does just what is suppose to do. About a perfect size while sitting on my BMW G650 GS, but definitely gets in the way while standing on the pegs. For off-road riding I will look for something shorter front to back. I would recommend this item to a friend.

A great tank bag.
I use this on my Yamaha Super Tenere; it fits great and is well designed. I like the overall quality of materials. The non slip material on the mounting surface prevents the bag from sliding around on the tank. A great mid sized tank bag.

Great bag for the T800
The Blackhawk fits the sloped profile of the Tiger 800 well, but for where I sit it is a bit too far back. I added the Seat Concepts Tall seat to my bike and the increase in height puts the Blackhawk under my nose and I have to rotate my head way down to see the bag. I don't use the map case anyway, but I do put my ID in the back pocket and I have to lay eyes on it so as not to drop it after I go through the gate at work. It is deceptively big. Holds more than I need. The only thing I would request for future upgrades is maybe the ability to compartmentalize somehow. My phone always ends up with something hard (can, tire gauge, etc... bouncing around on the screen. Great product. My only other gripe is the rain cover is chintzy and costs WAY more than it should

Just what I was looking for.
I got this just before a 1,000 mile trip through Oregon. I wanted something not too bulky, but "big enough". At first I was disappointed that the transparent map pocket doesn't hold a folded map, then realized I don't look at maps while riding anyway, so this is a non-issue. I used it on a rugged 6-hour off-road tour over ATV trails, also, and it was great - doesn't get in the way whether you are standing on the pegs or sitting.
