For city commuting or for a day ride, a motorcycle tank bag can be a really handy little piece of luggage. While not very large, a motorcycle tank bag can store enough essential gear to get you where you’re going and back, carrying just the items you need to get around. Water, snacks, phone, wallet, an extra shield and cleaner, sunblock... a lot can fit in a motorcycle tank bag. As the name indicates, a tank bag rides on your motorcycle's fuel tank. Some designs attach to the tank with magnetic flaps while others are strapped on through more involved installation procedures. Most motorcycle tank bags need to be unhooked at fuel stops. The most visible feature added to most motorcycle tank bags is the transparent top pocket, designed for displaying a riding map. While GPS systems are gaining popularity as navigation guides, map-carrying tank bags will be assisting many riders long into the future. Motorcycle Superstore offers motorcycle tank bags by top brands like Firstgear, Saddlemen, MotoCentric, Chase Harper, Nelson-Rigg and more. Get a motorcycle tank bag and keep your route and your gear close at hand.
