Rapid Transit Recon 19 Magnetic Tank Bag 4.6 5 38 38
excellent price point Nice bag. Has the shape I was looking for. Holds a good amount of stuff for a small bag. Looks good on a triumph. Magnets are strong. May 11, 2015
Good bag with a few annoyances This bag works well on my bike and stays in place with the super strong magnets. It is oddly shaped, but holds more than it appears that it will hold. The bag is well made, looks good and the numerous pockets really come in handy. The zipper for the main compartment is fussy and annoys me every time I use it. Next time I will get a bag with a circumferential zipper. The lack of a built in carry handle is also annoying. I use the detachable strap, but I sure wish it had a carry handle. I really wanted to like this bag, and for the most part I do, but the nags of the zipper system and the lack of handle keep me from giving it 5 stars. October 13, 2014
Good bag for metal tanks I bought this bag for a Route 66 trip which covered over 4,000 miles. The bag did it's job which is to keep my stuff secure on the tank while riding. My only complaint is the same I have with most tank bags these days. The map pocket is terribly positioned! It also needs a pouch that will hold a smartphone in a case. I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 and the pouch isn't even close to holding the phone even without a case! Other than that, it's a great bag! September 10, 2014
Great bag Bought this bag for my USA 4 corners ride. I rode over 11,000 miles in 22 days. The bag worked great, extra room for drinks and snacks. The map pouch works well. September 1, 2014
Great tank bag, nice features Just got this tank bag and took it on a 3 day trip. It's unexpectedly well designed. At first, I thought the map window would be too far forward, but it is not. The shoulder straps and single sling strap also make this easy to carry and transform into a backpack/daypack. Other nice features include the way the side magnetic flaps fold in and stick to the back when not in use and the small pouch for tucking away the end magnetic flap. Also got to test the rain cover and can verify that it works. I was able to pack rain gear, water bottle, hat, camera in this bag (including cell phone outside and map). The fit is ideal for smaller, narrow bikes. I down rated the finish and durability because the zippers seem a little cheap and small for the use they'll have to endure. Also, the map window is really narrow but this is a small bag. Finally, I have an older motorcycle (we're talking 1972 here) and the horn and starter buttons are very prominent on the left and right handlebars. I have to watch those tight parking lot turns or I'll bump the horn or starter button on the bag. If you need a good, small bag that is well made and portable, you can't go wrong here. July 26, 2014
Great tank bag! Purchased this after seeing all of the positive reviews. Definitely a great product. Goes on and off the bike easily, and doesn't slip while at speed even if nothing is in it to weigh it down. My only complaint is that there's no solid way to strap the backpack straps down while riding. They are easy to take on and off and there are pockets for them, but I would prefer to stow them out of the way so that you're not digging them out and putting them away every time you get on and off the bike. All in all though, I love this bag. Highly recommend it! May 26, 2014
Great tank bag, only wish it could be used on plastic tanks. I bought this tank bag 3 years ago and have gone around 2k miles with it so it's time for some review. I bought this because of its size and fuctionality. I usually go for a short ride on weekends under 100 miles and when I do, I prefer not carry my wallet, phone in my jacket or pants. So a tank bag with many comaprtments in a medium size was the one I look for. First, the bag looks like it's quality built. The material feels sturdy and it holds its shape even when empty. It has 2 compartments on each side both inside and outside, which is very convenient for me and the key fob is a nice touch. Inside the bag there is a removable waterproof pocket for hydration bladder, since I do short rides most of the time this is not much use for me, but still a pleasant feature for future longer rides. Installation is very easy, the magnets are strong enough to hold the bag well onto the tank when doing a more aggressive ride. It only fell once and that time I had a lowside. Very impressive. The design of integrated tank pad protecting you from scratching your tank is very smart. But after a while I still found some minor marks on top of the tank, it could be the quality of the paint but it may show the bag is still moving slightly when riding, I guess that's how I got those marks. Besides, the finsh surface in the bottom of the bag, the main contact area with tank, is not as smooth as I though. So If you are not sure of your clear coat quality, you might want to put something in between. The rain cover is stored in the front of the bag and attached to the main body so there is no way you could lose it, which I like the most. It kept my stuff dry dry when I once rode in rain. So no complaint about the cover. The map window and cell phonce pouch are a little narrow and small, but I don't use it often so not a deal breaker. I now ride a Ducati GT1000 which has plastic tank so I start using is as a backpack. To my surprise it held up just fine,too. I always wear backpack as high as possible and this bag has a removable strap to connect each shoulder strap. It means you can wear it like a hiking backpack, and it makes you feel more confortable in long rides. I am very happy about this product, just too bad I can not use it on my GT and I may try to find something to attach it to the tank somehow. Hope anything I mentioned here helps. April 22, 2014
Ease I ordered the recon transit tank bag to fit my 06 ninja 250. It fits perfectly and looks great too. The zippered cell phone pocket fits my moto x (barely). The pocket is quite low though, so I have to be sitting upright to look at my cell phone and interact with it. The only issue I have with the bag is that the zipper system seems weak. I feel like for the money, they should have put a stronger zipper in it. Only time will tell how durable it is though. Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase. April 7, 2014

Braun Z: I've owned this bag for over a year now and would highly recommend it. It's large enough to hold everything I need for a day trip, plus it can be used as a backpack when walking around. I go to moto gp races and having a dual purpose bag like this is really nice. The bag is very secure on my tank, the magnets they used are very strong. Keep this in mind when you put it on or take it off your bike, as they can scuff the clear coat if you drag them. Lift the magnets straight up when removing. Sep 9, 2014

Michael F: I ride a 2004 SuperHawk. I love this bag but I have a more upright riding position. Fully loaded the bag is high so if you are used to laying on your tank it might be awkward. I enjoy the added hight when I'm riding long distance as it's a nice resting pad for me. the side pockets are great, the cell phone pocket on top is not. direct sun will overheat your phone as there is no ventilation and it's a smaller sized pocket and the iPhone 6 doesn't fit well. I tend to keep my cel phone in a side pocket. Magnets are strong and hold onto my tank well. Feb 17, 2015
Reply to Michael Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Bill H: Is the tank metal?

Yeah, it will fit on your Panigale, but I would be very careful with protecting the tank with some kind of film or other material. The magnets are very, very strong - repositioning the bag could cause a scrape.

It's a very secure, roomy bag. Holds a lot of stuff. Just be careful about your tank.

Carlos H: I don't think if it is going to be of any help, I have a '06 Sportster, but...
I love tank bags. They are the right size for me, they adhere well (see comment below), they are easy to put on and to take off.
This one is very well made and its capacity fills my needs perfectly. Good materials, good project, good crafstmanship.
Tank bags will certainly scratch the paint a bit. It is not their fault, but the grit and sand that penetrates between the tank surface and the bag bottom.
Magnets: they work very well, unless you make the terrible mistake of waxing your tank :-). Fortunately for me, I found that the bag was slipping sideways in the first curve after leaving home. A couple of days later, without any action from me, the adherence came back to normal.
As I said, I use it on a Sportster. I have gone through heavy rains with it and it is really waterproof.
Regards, Carlos.

Brad P: Hi I bought this tank bag for my zzr 1200 and it was the best tank bag I have owned to-date. I now have a zx 14 and the tank bag doesn't quite work as well on my new bike as it has only partial metal in the tank. As long as you have a metal tank you should be good. The best part is the built in rain cover. It never blows off like some of the others have in the past.
Also lots of storage compartments for long distance touring.

michael w: Hi Juan, I cant specifically answer your question as I own a Honda VFR800. However I can recommend this magnetic tank bag to you. I wasn't looking for a large bag as I generally don't have a lot of stuff to carry. The only thing that I would point out is that if you wanted to use mobile phone pocket on the top of the bag, it would not be large enough to accept the bigger size phones that are popular now. So as long as you are not after a large magnetic bag, I don't believe that you would be disappointed if you bought this one. Cheers Mike Jan 31, 2014

Brad P: Hi I would highly recommend this tank bag. The built in rain cover is the best i've seen. I think it would work great on any bike that has a metal tank. I now ride a zx14 and can no longer use my bag because my tank is mostly plastic. I still have and will find use for it some where down the road for sure.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: In RevZilla's experience, this tank bag is not compatible with bikes equipped with plastic gas tanks as it is not equipped with mounting straps or removable magnets.

That being said, we would recommend a strap mounted tank bag such as the Cortech Super 2.0 18-Liter Strap Mounted Tank Bag, or something from Kriega using their Tank Adaptor.

sightseer415: Depends on the format of your computer (more widescreen, possibly). I have a 12.1 widescreen lenovo that fits just right at the bottom of the bag (and actually, right into the pocket that is supposed to hold the bladder), but then again my laptop battery does stick out a bit so it's closer to being a 13". Worth checking out though. May 22, 2012

AliB: Without specific dimensions of your GPS, it is difficult to give a proper answer to your question. Their are 2 pockets at the top of the tank bag that have a clear plastic cover for viewing the pockets contents. One is the size of a small cell phone and the long pocket is fairly narrow. One of the detail photos shows a close up of the top with the cell phone in the pocket to judge scale. By using this photo, it looks as though the pocket is too narrow to accommodate a GPS.
