Little pricey but a quality product. Have to drill your own holes so be careful. (Posted on 6/29/15)

bought this for my 2015 BMW R1200RT. The snap-off, snap-on feature works great and the design looks like it was made for my bike! Really, I can't think of any cons for this product .... only PROs! (Posted on 6/25/15)

Bought this bag system for my 2013 BMW F800 GS. The overall quality is excellent, and it's great for your smaller items. (Wallet, extra keys, cellphone, ear plugs, sunglasses, registration forms, etc) After years of riding, I've concluded I don't actually like a large, bulky tank bag. This one, on the BMW is nice and slim, doesn't take up a lot of room in the cockpit, so if you're looking for a big tank bag, this one isn't for you.

My only problem with this bag, if you're putting this on your BMW F800GS, is that the bag ends up sitting way too close to your ignition switch, making it a little clumsy to insert or remove or even turn your key, (although it's still possible to do all this while the bag is in place) The one major issue, is if you have the small factory 12v plug near your ignition switch, forget about using it. It's nearly impossible to use while this bag is in place, as it covers it (see photos). I got around this problem already as before I even bought this bag, I routed a 12v line from my battery up to another spot for auxiliary power for other accessories anyways, so I can live without the 12v one that's in that spot. If you're handy (and if you ride a motorbike, you SHOULD be) you can always move the 12v socket to another spot, or add another like I did.

The other issue is that even though the bag is contoured, it doesn't perfectly contour with the bike, which is understandable, as it wasn't made to exactly fit in the first place. If you have an F800 GS, and can live with these small issues, you won't be disappointed. The last tank bag I was using was secured on with straps and I hated the sloppy look of the straps and how they were ruining the body work of the bike by rubbing on it. This bag system cleans up your bike and doesn't leave any sloppy straps all over the place.

Another small issue would be the rain bag they give you. It's actually a complete opposite of the rest of the product. It's completely garbage. Cheaply made, thin material with a useless cord you use to cinch it tight to the bag. I wouldn't count on it lasting as long as the rest of the bag system. (Posted on 6/22/15)

This bag is a great bag for holding small quick needed items such as cell phone, glasses, wipe cloths. It also has a hole in the top for power cords. I ran my own power to the bag so when removed from the mounts it maintains power while disconnected (Posted on 6/6/15)

This is a really good looking bag. It flows nicely with the lines of the 2015 Yamaha FJ-09. It is small, but efficient. It has wire ports on both ends, and accommodations for a gadget (phone, GPS) holder on the front. I put the template for the ring connector
all the way to the back, drilled the holes, fastened the ring connector down, and done. I didn't drill the anti theft device hole, and after watching the video on how to get the bag off if you can't get to the tab/cable, wished I had....but I will later. Always make sure the tab that is looped through the release cable is snapped on to the front. It can be difficult to retrieve it if it gets tucked under the bag. Overall, a great looking product that stands off of the paint, and works great! (Posted on 3/19/15)

I like the bag but was fooled by how tiny tiny it is. Good for a couple pair of glasses, rag, small bottle of water and that is it.
I especially like the quick release mount. (Posted on 12/1/14)

This is just right... Way big enough to carry all my pocket stuff, and then some... Easy on, easy off... Easy install too. (Posted on 11/30/14)

Costs way more than it should. That being said it us a nice bag, fit and finish are good and it sits nicely on the multistrada. Don't waste your $$ on the electric version, this one has a spot you can route wiring through if your bike is equipped (Posted on 11/10/14)

With a couple of caveats, I really like the 'Engage' tankbag. Other brands offer a tankring bag in this size, but this is the only bag of its size that conforms to the steep tank on my V-strom 650. The side pockets are good for sunglasses, the rainfly or an energy bar or two. It's a small bag to begin with, but the main compartment is unfortunately smaller than it looks. At the cost of interior volume, the floor vacuum-molded floor takes up a lot of room, but it allows you to flush-mount the quick-lock at the front or back of the bag to custom fit your tank. The velcro divider makes it even more cramped, so I tossed it. Still, there's enough room for a quart of oil and a light jacket (make that a very light jacket), with some odds and ends in the curved section.

The quick-lock mechanism is very solid and holds the bag securely, but make sure it engages cleanly after you gas up. A solid tug will tell you if it's on tight. To release the bag, you have to reach under the front of the bag and pull a wire loop with your finger, which is a pain even with my XL hands. Mounting the quick-lock closer to the front would have made this easier, but then the bag wouldn't lay as close to the tank, which was the whole point of paying more for this bag ... so yeah, a little annoying.

The rainfly is 100% waterproof (which I've tested in about an hour of medium rain) and has about 10" diagonal clear plastic. But even without the rainfly, the bag is very, very, very water resistant. I got caught in a 45 minute rain without the rainfly and the water just beaded up on the fabric. I'm sure the windshield helped some, but not a drop got through the fabric or zippers. Leave the rainfly at home unless you're touring in the Pacific Northwest.

So all in all, a 4 star bag. I took away one star for its high price (compared to other brands that mount to the tankring) and the difficulty reaching the release wire under the bag. (Posted on 10/10/14)

I had used a Cortech tank bag on my BMW K1300S and was very disappointed in the quality, design and mounting system. Tossing that, I've now purchased and installed this SW-MOTECH bag and couldn't be happier. Aside from the fact that this particular bag fits my K-bike bike tank perfectly---it's style and fit seem custom designed for this bike---the quality is superior: design, materials, features, mounting system, and detailing are all exceptional. It simply couldn't be better. Whenever I need similar products in the future, SW-MOTECH will be my first, and likely only, stop. (Posted on 9/13/14)
