Big & Bang For The Buck. Fits BMW F650GS Twin Nicely.
I wanted to upgrade my Nelson Rigg CL-1010 mini tank bag for my 2011 BMW F650GS Twin bike. Those familiar with this GS bike know the faux tank is relatively short and curves down towards rider. I also have a GPS RAM mount in the center of my handlebar I didn't want to block. I need a tank bag with a front height shorter than 5" inches. So, after researching all the major brands, I decided the Nelson Rigg CL-1050 Adventure touring was the best size and value. I was pretty happy with the CL-1010 construction. So, I took a chance the CL-1050 Adventure would have similar construction. I haven't been disappointed. While not identical, the CL-1050 sides have reinforced sidewalls, which help keep the tank bag shape. So, it doesn't look like a duffel bag when empty.
The CL-1050 Adventure fits the F650GS Twin perfectly. The front (facing handlebar) clears the center mounted ignition key and auxiliary power adapter outlet; a little cramped with my Ram GPS mount, but still accessible. The back (facing rider) sits just over the threshold of the tank and the enduro stock seat. The bottom contour of the tank bag fits snugly over the slopped tank. Soft and not skid bottom. When you place the tank bag on the tank, the top map compartment is level (parallel) to the ground. The straps keep the tank bag securely on the tank. Very little front/back or side to side movement. I initially pulled the rear frame straps too tight. I then loosened them up. DO NOT pull the straps down too tight. Otherwise you may tear the D rings off the bag. After mounting the bag, I took it out for a 200 mile ride. The tank doesn't move at all. Nice and secure.
Oh, the bag itself. Plenty of room for holding items for extended trip. For me 14.6 Liter is just right. Not too small and not too big for weekend / extended trips. Nelson Rigg recommend keeping the weight of contents below 10 lbs. The inside of the bag seemed to be lined with a soft fabric. The exterior material is made out of a strong ballistic nylon. The bag comes with a waterproof cover with a clear map area and ability to expand the rain cover when the tank bag is expanded. I haven't had a chance to test the rain cover. I always put critical electronics in a zip lock bag anyhow. The bag also comes with shoulder strap. Not sure if I'll ever use it. My tank bag usually stays on the tank permanently.
Although, I just got the CL-1050 Adventure Touring tank bag, I am extremely happy with the fit for my bike, shape, size, features, rain cover, and ease of mounting. I would recommend this product to others. The zippers might not be YKK, but you cannot beat the CL-1050 tank bag for value, features, and construction.

CL 1050 on Super Tenere
I was looking for a tank bag for my Super Tenere that I could use to hold my DSLR camera during the COBDR and after looking at much more expensive bags decided to give this one a try.
What an excellent choice! It fits the bike perfectly, is very water resistant without the rain cover, and did a great job of protecting my camera.
Its easier to gas up the bike than with a magnetic bag in my opinion and won't blow off the bike like my magnetic one did (multiple times).
My bike got sleepy on the trip and the bag stayed in place with camera protected inside.
Its a great bang for the buck and definitely recommend it.

I wanted fit.
The bag fit my VStom perfectly. The slope of the tank and angle cut of the bag fits perfectly. Just what I was looking for. The bag never once gave me trouble on my 4500 mile trip this past summer.. Great looks and great quality too.

Great versatile bag
I purchased this bag for my BMW F650GS (single). It fits the tank very well, and the two sizes (collapsed and expanded) are "just right". I like the way the carrying handle is situated on the bag as well; off the bike it's easy to carry it and a helmet with one hand (chin strap on the helmet closed of course).

nelson riggs tank bag
excellent bag for the money -fits my bmw gs 1200 fine. The mounting is fine about like every other bag but not as good and easy to disconnect as a BMW bag. BMW uses a rear zipper and is easy to use for gas fillups. The bag is excellent quality and should last a long time. Nice feature it comes with a rain cover.

Fits Suzuki DL1000 perfectly
I bought the Nelson Rigg CL-1050 Adventure Touring Tank Bag for my 2012 Suzuki DL1000 Vstrom right before a 1,600 ride. It fits the Vstrom perfectly, looks great, is well made and is a great value.

As other reviewers have mentioned, the rain cover seems cheaply made and not on par with the good quality of the bag itself. However, I have done a 300 mile all-day ride in the driving rain without the rain cover on. While some moisture worked its way into the map pocket, my phone, wallet, spare gloves and notepad inside the bag stayed perfectly dry. I may end up just spraying the bag with 3M Scotch-guard (or some other waterproofing) and not even bother with the rain cover.

Overall, it does exactly what I am looking for and I would highly recommend it.

Basic tank bag
After a long trip to Alaska, this bag worked fine on my Gen II KLR650. Lots of room even without expanding it. Good size map pocket and clear rain cover allows maps to be read in any weather.

I can see areas that could use improvement...
1. I replaced the straps with a set of magnets because they're much easier to remove at gas stops, etc.
2. The rain cover uses 4 elastic loops to stay in place and you cannot access to bag without removing at least 2 of them (straps/magnets again) How about velcro tabs instead?

bag is great, rain cover - not so good
I am very happy with the bag having just finished a 2500 mile trip through good weather and bad. The rain cover that comes with the bag is poorly made. However, even riding in driving rain and wind for many hours, the bag w/o the rain cover never did leak. For the money and for sloped tanks - the bag is great.

Nice bag
I needed a new tank bag as my old magnetic bag wouldn't work on my new FJ-09. This bag fits perfectly is easy to install and holds a good amount of stuff. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that one of the zipper pulls came off the first day of use. Once the first one came off I grabbed a pair of pliers and crimped all the other pulls tight so hopefully they will stay on. Other than that, it is perfectly suited for my bike and would work great on any "adventure" style bike. I would recommend this bag, but make sure the zipper pulls are crimped down tight so they don't come off.

Has Fallen Totally Apart After Just 2 Seasons.
Main zipper has torn out, rendering the bag useless, after just two seasons. Very disappointing. Zipper pulls also broke after the first year. Bag was warrantied once for zipper pulls, Nelson Rigg made it clear they would not warranty the replacement bag.

If you're going to make an adventure bag, make it last. What a joke. I will NEVER buy anything Nelson Rigg again. I would recommend Revzilla drop the line.
