Awesome bag!
I love this bag! I use it on my 12' Triumph Bonneville and it does not detract from the look of the bike at all. I had a problem with the first bag that came in and Revzilla was very quick to rectify the problem. Thumbs UP to the Revzilla team!!

Once mounted, the bag is very secure and has not shown any damage to the tank. I am very diligent in removing debris from the bottom surface before mounting every time though. I would give this bag a 4.5 star rating but that's not an option. The only reason I didn't give it a full 5 star is because the included water proof cover does not stay on at highway speeds. There is no way to tie it down tightly enough to stop the wind from coming underneath of it.

I also bought a platypus bladder from Amazon and it works like a charm. The bag is very versitale, easy to use, and has a lot of space for what it is. Oh, and if you have an iphone 4 #with a case#, iphone 5, or samsung galaxy, the phone pocket will not fit! Not a deal breaker for me but something to consider.

Great bag, fits the 2nd Gen Ninja 250 perfectly
I swear this bag was designed with the Ninja 250 in mind. It fits on there perfectly. The bag itself is compact yet surprisingly spacious and as long as you're an efficient packer you can carry quite a bit with you. It isn't a bag you could use for a weekend of camping, but it's good for an overnight stay. The main compartment itself has 2 interior pockets along with a compartment for a hydration pack along with a hole through which the drinking tube can be fed. There are 2 exterior pockets on each side of the bag that can also hold a little bit too, I commonly use those to hold my cell phone and wallet on one side, the other holds a small spray bottle and microfiber towel for cleaning my helmet and visor. There's also a pocket at the front of the bag which almost seems like an afterthought by the designers and just threw it on there because they could. It's a perfect size for holding a small digital camera. There are 2 flaps that combine to close up the main compartment; on the larger flap is a cell phone holder which barely holds my smartphone as well as a pocket to hold a map, however it is pretty useless as it's very narrow. I thought it'd be a perfect pocket for when I borrow the Garmin GPS out of my wife's car but it's too narrow to fit the Garmin in there in a landscape orientation which is required since the screen doesn't rotate its orientation. I've used it to hold my smartphone when using it as a GPS or to just be able to keep an eye on the time. The map pocket is really my only real source of frustration with the entire bag. It's just so useless, if it were wide enough to accommodate the GPS I'd be a happy camper. The smaller flap at the base of the bag has multiple see-through mesh pockets for holding pocket change or ear plugs. There's also a zipper pocket for an MP3 player with a hole in the flap to pass the earbuds through. This is a nice feature but I would never use it. I don't like the idea of being tethered to my bike in that manner. The bag also features a built-in rain cover which is awesome for those of you who venture out in rainy weather routinely, the only thing that could make the rain cover better is if they could've incorporated some sort of clear plastic window to allow you to still see the map pocket. Also included is a clip for your keys inside the main compartment. While somewhat silly, yet I still appreciate the extra touch, is they actually label every feature with an identifying patch so that you know what that feature is for - map pocket, hydration pack, change pocket, etc. Lastly, it includes 2 different sets of straps, one to carry it as a backpack, another to carry it as a messenger bag. The clever thing I appreciate about the backpack straps is that it orients the hole for the hydration pack's drinking tube so that it is at the top of your back so if you're wearing it you can easily take a drink of water. I honestly see myself using this thing when I go out hiking or having a day out in the park with my kids since it can hold so much and carry a large amount of water as well.

With all these great features, there are still some cons to this bag. The previously mentioned map pocket is a big one. Another is the rubberized surface on the bottom of the bag leaves smudges on the tank so I constantly have to rub off the black smudges. It also likes to pick up gravel or dirt if I set it on the ground, I've made the mistake already of not doing a good enough job of cleaning it off before putting it back on the tank and got a couple of bad scratches in the paint. The only other odd thing about the bag is that the width of the main pocket tapers down from back to front which can limit what you can carry by a little bit. It isn't that bad, just sometimes need to re-pack things to allow it all to fit.

Good Bag
I like this bag, a lot.
My only comment to future buyers are:
The map window is small.
The bag is relatively small (which I wanted)
One of the zippers is a little hard to operate with one hand, and sometimes with two - it catches on the seams of another zipper, but it isn't really a big deal or I would have returned it.

When we buy things online, it is easy to miss details like these.

Bag has a great pockets, including one for a cell phone, which I Blue-tooth with my Zumo. I am not set up to talk, but the number shows up on the GPS.

The bag is well made - I only wish it was well made in the USA.

An amazing bag for any trip or adventure
I have had this bag for about 6 years now. It never leaves my bike.
I lot of room to sore just about everything and anything. The small pouch up from is for a phone, but phones today are much bigger. That is my only complaint.
It is very water resistant, and even comes with an attached rain cover that stores in its own pocket in the very front of the bag.
The magnets keep it in place in any condition.

If you are looking for a tank bag, this is the one you need to get.

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.

WILL NOT WORK WITH 2006 CBR600RR.
I found that the magnets will not attach to the tank on my 2006 CBR600RR, yet they work perfectly on my friend's 2006 CBR600F4i. Do yourself a favor and test a magnet on your tank before you buy!

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.

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!

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.

What are the dimensions of this bag?
A shopper on May 31, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Rapid Transit Recon 19 Magnetic Tank Bag will fit on the Triumph Bonneville's steel gas tank without issue.
Can Anthony do a review on this bag so we can see the functionality of it?
Martha R on Sep 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
I just bought the 899 Panigale and am looking for a tank bag that will work for this bike. Will this bag work? Or do you recommend a different one?

Thanks!
A shopper on Feb 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
What are the dimensions of this bag? I am looking over the description and don't see any. I am curious if my laptop will fit. 12.79 x 8.60
A shopper on Oct 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Ps. Bag is 15 x 10 x 6" interior dimensions. Good magnetic attachment. Strong materials. Nice other features also. The only problem which i should of told revzilla buy didn't is that the first model i bought was much better than the second (i bought 2). Good materials but poor craftsmanship.or they were"irregular"
Hi, Looks like this bag cannot be used on a 2014 BMW F800GS. Correct? I have seen conflicting info on if it has straps or not.
Thanks
A shopper on Jun 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Can't remember if it has straps or not. I use it on my Yamaha FJR and it works great. The magnets are very strong and it stays put. Lots of storage space.
Hey,

Any experience with this bag and the Ninja 650 2012?
A shopper on Sep 6, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Works great. Fits the 650s tank perfectly. Just be careful when removing or the magnets may gouge your paint.
Can someone share their experience and confirm this works for a KLR 650? 2009 and up?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The 2009 model has the same tank as all the others, it just has the added plastic sections. I have a 1998 KLR 650 and the bag worked great on a 4,200 mile trip. You may have to play around with positioning as it is possible the magnetic sections might end up on the plastic sections but, you should be able to move it around to a position that works. If it doesn't work, Revzilla has a great return policy so, you really have nothing to lose but, a little time.
Is this bag designed for cruisers like the Honda Shadow Spirit?
Justin B on Sep 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If your bike has a metal gas tank the Rapid Transit Recon 19 should work. I cruise at highway speed and have never had a problem with this bag.
how does it fit in a Kawasaki Versys 1000 / 2014?
Juan Esteban M on Jan 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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
Does this come with mounting straps and can the magnets be easily removed for mounting on a non-steel tank?
A shopper on Nov 3, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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.
