7 Tank Bags for Your Bike
Seven tank bags just right for your bike
The Givi Silver T470 Tank Bag is a nice medium-size bag with a rain cover and GPS holder.
1. The Givi Silver T470 Tank Bag is a nice medium-size bag full of tricks. Clip on the included strap and it can be worn like a backpack. Flip it over to discover that it has an attached rain cover that slips out from a pocket on the bottom. It comes with magnets and four belts, giving you the option for mounting it either way. The front edge of the bag has a small zipper pocket that contains an extractable GPS holder. The zippers are waterproof, there’s a large map window on the top, and two more quick-access pockets — one on either side — are perfect for your wallet and keys. Slick, well made and still affordable. Price: $70.99 (Motorcycle Superstore). Check out the Image Gallery for a photo of each pair of boots.
2. The Firstgear Silverstone Tank Bag is a handy, smaller-sized tank bag. It features two outside pockets, a clear top pocket for a map or GPS system, and a comfortable soft-grip handle and detachable shoulder strap for carrying. The reflective piping helps keep you visible at night and the five heavy-duty magnets built into the rubbery non-slip bottom (two at the front, one at the back and two in the fold-out “wings”) keep it securely in place. The main compartment is also expandable via a zipper that runs around the base of the bag. And for motorcycles with plastic or fiberglass tanks — or if you happen to prefer strap mounted bags as opposed to magnetic bags — the optional quick-strap mounting base lets you easily attach and release the bag, leaving the base on your motorcycle. It also comes with a clear rain cover. Price: $80.96 (bag), $8.96 (quick-strap mounting system). To purchase: Competition Accessories
3. The Manta Tank Bag from Joe Rocket is small, but it’s perfect for the necessities we carry every day. Unlike most of the other bags here, it doesn’t feature a map window on top. Instead, you get two external zippered pockets, one with a small window for your phone and another without a window that’s great for your wallet, keys and more. It comes with a rain cover and a magnetic mounting system, along with a removable shoulder strap. It has reflective piping, and a belt buckle guard helps keep buckles and zippers from scratching your tank when the bag is on your bike. It’s available in a variety of colors, including red, blue, black, silver, pink and camo. If you need more space, check out the larger Manta XL. Price: $54.99.
