Rapid Transit Recon 11 Magnetic Tank Bag
Every part of this bag, down to the last stitch, is precisely made.
This bag is great. It has plenty of room with several side zippered pockets and included is a cloth lined zippered pouch that attaches by velcro to the inside bottom of the bag and an attachable strap to allow carrying the bag on your sholder. It does come with a warning about magnets being known to cause damage to hot or metallic paint and to avoid leaving the bag attached when not actually riding. I have followed this warning and have not had any problems.

IT'S BEEN MY FAVORITE
There is one inherent issue with the aggressive grip pattern at magnet pads.
If you leave this on your tank all day, the power of the magnets Forces an impression of the pads grip pattern into your paint on warm days. Apparently paint is never rock solid.
I make a point of removing the bag when I get home or to the shop.
This is maybe a common issue with others, but the aggressive grip pattern are raised micro dot points that leaves it's footprint into the finish.
If marks are left, the paint finish seems to level out healing itself.
I thought I was going to have to buff it out, but no.
This is used on both my 07 Neo & C model 1800 VTX Honda.
Iv'e considered using a Dremel to buff these micro points smoother.
When I pull into the shop, there's a large metal cabinet near where I mount the bag to it for storage off the bike.
This keeps the pads clean from picking up any metal particles that could damage paint immediately.
Heaven help you throwing the bag on the floor.
Not sure if this was the intension of how they designed the magnet pad pockets, but you can move the large magnets a little to make them fit the shape of tank if necessary.
This bag works great getting fuel on this cruiser.
The rear mag tab stays in place while lifting off the two
side mag tabs as you move the bag back to expose the fuel cap.
One could mount a micro stretch net on the right side of bag to hold the cap while fueling when bike is on the kick stand leaning left.
This would prevent damage to fuel cap if it fell hitting concrete, or you dinging the paint.
I keep GPS, iPhone, Jofama riding gloves, goggles, maps, remote garage opener, camera, sunglasses, Surefire flashlite, spare batteries, etc.
With or w/o saddle bags, this is the gem to have before heading out for any ride. I cruise 90 all day, and no sign of it ever trying to escape.
If they made this model with a GPS (Nuvi) viewing pocket & add 2 inches on each side with expand zippers, it would be a 5 hands down.
Are you one that always lose your keys just when you want to go for a ride? Inside the center section on left is a tethered hook for it.
I like this bag a lot.
I'm glad also that it doesn't have gaudy colored banners.
It sits stealth not attracting attention when 1500.00 of gear are inside.
I don't quite understand the sizing accuracy menu above, but if you have pocket raincoat, better pack that too.
These are powerful magnets, so prevent direct contact with electronic devices.
Keep it away from TV's screen walking near them.
