Rapid Transit Recon 19 Magnetic Tank Bag 4.5 5 31 31
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
An excellent sport-bike tank bag This is the second time I've purchased this exact bag. The first time I bought it, I used it with my 2005 Honda F4 which I sold (and included the bag with the sale). When I bought my '02 VFR800 last summer, I must admit I was surprised to see that this tankbag is still one of the best on the market for size and price, so I bought it again. As far as tankbags go, this one isn't huge, but it can take a good amount of gear. The bag has a few key features I really like: the dedicated cell-phone pouch, the backpack straps, and the camelpak straw pushthrough. Overall, this bag isn't the biggest out there, but it's certainly one of the best. I couldn't recommend it more. March 3, 2014
Great looking functional bag that is almost perfect! I was pleasantly surprised at the overall quality of the Rapid Transit Recon 19 Magnetic Tank Bag. The bag has multiple zipper and Velcro compartments to store and secure all of my "pertinents". The magnets are very strong and they keep the bag in place at speed. It's big enough for most day trips however if you are looking to take your stuff on a longer trip you would need an additional backpack or bag for bulky clothing etc. My rain suit fits just fine with plenty of space left over for wallet, keys, phone etc. My only knock on this bag is that I was hoping to use this with my iPhone GPS app and though the phone fits perfectly, where it's positioned on my sport bike tank I can't view the screen as I ride #which is probably good because of safety reasons yet a bit inconvenient#. I would recommend this product. February 6, 2014
A Decent Tank Bag, but maybe not the first choice for sportbike riders This was my first tank bag so I may not have sufficient experience to base this review off of. However, I will say that its imperative to anyone who is considering purchasing this bag be very respectful of its size and not try to over pack; I learned this leason the hard way when nylon fabric began to tear at the seams because I overpacked it. Overall, the Rapid Transit Recon 19 does its job very well, and I liked the fact that it can be converted into a backpack with the included straps. If you ride a sport bike like me be advised that you my have fitment issues if your bike has plastic fairings around the fuel tank. At the time I owned this bag I was riding an 07 R1 and I had to use the included AUX strap to secure the bag because of the limited metal surfaces on the gas tank December 20, 2013
Highly recommend! Great tank bag! First time going with a tank bag and I could not be happier. Have done a couple all day trips and bag has yet to move even packed with gear and a 70 ounce bladder inside. October 1, 2013
A good, versatile tank bag with features, may not fit short tanks well. This is a pretty nice bag. I wanted something magnetic with space and features and that's exactly what I got. It's a longer bag than it looks in photos. While it does fit on my tank, I can tell that it was designed with a slightly longer tank in mind. Because of the way my tank is sculpted, I have to place the magnets carefully when I mount the bag, but once on-board, the bag is quite secure and doesn't move around. The cell phone case on top will accomodate an iPhone 5 in a Lifeproof case. It's a tight fit, but it does fit, and the zipper allows enough opening to feed the USB cable out to my dashboard charger. Also - the clear plastic top of the case will apparently transmit to the phone screen - you can touch the screen and operate controls even while in the case. The bag does come with straps to convert it to a backpack, but the straps don't really store conveniently for errand-running usage. I haven't bothered with them. It's not a particularly good design, but this isn't a super-high-end-bag, either. It's a commuter bag. As I said, the bag is longer than it is wide. I managed to carry my wallet, extra keys, multi tool, and a 4 pack of belgian ale without any trouble. I could probably get a full change of clothes in there but it would be a tight fit. Is not big enough to carry a computer. Might fit a standard iPad, haven't tried. September 30, 2013
Awesome Bag So I want to come clean... I don't own this bag but soon will. I had been offered the chance to go on a long distance trip across Texas and didn't have a tank bag at the time. I asked a friend of mine if I could use his tank bag since I already had saddle bags and I just wanted the extra space. He let me borrow his Recon 19 tank bag and I fell in absolute love with it. I had this bag stuffed with a clear visor, tool pouch, medicine, water bottles (3), iPhone, charger, sunglasses, rain suit, insurance info, a base ball cap, wallet, house keys, cleaning cloth, and visor cleaner. Never once did this bag move, wiggle, or even attempt to slide off of my tank. Awesome bag that can hold a surprising amount of stuff! The rubber surface on the bottom is like glue on the bike but still goes on and off with ease. We caught some absolutely atrocious rain on the ride up that had the group all over the road from the huge gusts of wind and slippery conditions. This bag performed perfectly and the rain cover was fantastic, 30 seconds (while going 80mph) and the cover was out and on! Only complaint I have is the cover likes to float up from the drag but if you get the cinch piece on the rope that goes through the cover and feed it through the loop at the bag nearest the seat, then the cover will stay put no problem. By the end of the trip I was obsessed with this bag and knew I had to get one. I immediately went to my go-to online motorcycle store and found the bag here for ~$85 dollars. While I feel that the bag is worth this, I do believe that it should possibly be in the $60-75 range. All said and done... Buy this dang bag, because I am right now :) September 27, 2013
Smaller than anticipated but still gets the job done. I was originally planning to use this bag for commuting to and fro college ~25 minutes away. It ended up being a little smaller than i thought and can't hold larger hardcover textbooks. I ended up finding a way though so it serves its purpose just fine. It holds up on the freeway just great, no sliding around or anything. The magnets are very strong and if you take them off the right way you shouldnt worry about scratching your gas tank. The backpack straps work well and it has great pockets that are even labelled for their recommended use by design like cash or whatever else. September 9, 2013

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.

A shopper asked: Does this come with mounting straps and can the magnets be easily removed for mounting on a non-steel tank? Nov 3, 2012
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.
