Tank bag
« on: March 21, 2013, 05:45:52 PM »
This thing is absolutely brilliant.  The first tank bag I've ever owned that doesn't make me feel like I have to disassemble my motorcycle when filling the tank. Literally one snap, and the thing folds back out of the way.
The single buckle that holds the bag in place.
How it hinges back when adding fuel.

When removed, this is what you see.
I also like the map reader, the fact that it's just 3 quick clips to attach it, and the fact that the seam is actually on the bottom, out of the weather.

Yes.  It's pretty easy on/off with 3 quick clips, too.  It's large enough to have a map opened one fold, both directions.

You should be able to pick it up via the dealer network?  All I know is, I wouldn't have bought it, just because I hadn't seen how impressive it is and the fact that I've always had bad luck with tank bags.  Seeing as how this was part of my "we're so sorry we pissed you off" settlement from Triumph, I didn't have to shell out any of my own sheckles and I'm really happy I picked it up. Had this not been sent to me gratis, but I was able to see one elsewhere, I would have paid for this myself.
