”If you know you want a tank bag but are a bit bamboozled by all the available options, this one has all their good bits sewn into one.” — Andy
Initially designed for bikes with plastic and alloy tanks, it quickly became obvious that we had a pretty good all-round do-it-all tank bag. The bag itself is scalloped to reduce contact with both the horn and the starter button and the lid opens a true 180 degrees for a clear view of all your contents inside. This, combined with the good-sized zippers means I can just pull over, open the bag and take a photo — while still wearing gloves, helmet and all.
My design brief for this bag was fairly detailed; the tank bag must not interfere with the switch gear or my view to the instruments. It needed to use its space wisely without being cumbersome and encroaching on belly space, the zippers needed to be good quality, not rattle and be operable with cold, glove-laden hands, the bag itself needed to sit securely and not bounce around and the lid needed to open fully.
Once developed, my 20,000km shakedown test taught me I needed to add bit of colour to the inside base to ensure that my things don’t get lost in the great black tank bag void.
It also taught me refuelling needs to be able to happen really easily or else I’m going to opt for a rear-mounted seat bag instead. We’ve developed an innovative one-touch system to facilitate this, and one clip at the front has the entire bag rotating onto the rider’s seat. It’s got padded sides and a padded base to protect both the bag’s content and the bike’s tank and the whole thing converts to a handy backpack in seconds.
Our unique stretch harness will fit almost any bike — it is truly universal. it comes with four flat stainless steel strips enclosed in webbing to be bent to a shape to best fit your bike as well as two straps with loops at the end to slip over — well, just about anything — to give owners heaps of attachment options.
