Cycle Case Rider GPS Tank Bag | MC Tested

By Annette Carrion, Photography by Kevin Hipp

Until recently, I carried my belongings in a backpack when I rode. But when I inherited this tank bag from one of the guys here at the office, I ditched the pack! The magnetic Cycle Case bag hugs my Ninja 250R’s tank and has room for the stuff I want to carry. I usually roll with extra gloves, snacks, and a brush and straightening iron—you never know when there will be an impromptu photo shoot here at the office, and we all know how unattractive helmet hair looks! Well, maybe not Ari...

The Rider GPS tank bag is Cycle Case’s mid-size offering. It measures about 13.5 x 8.5 x 8 inches and is made of heavy-duty nylon fabric with several strong magnets in the rubberized base. It also comes with straps for mounting to plastic or aluminum tanks. The tank bag’s big claim to fame is a transparent top with a compartment under it for your GPS or smart phone.

I like that I can slap the bag onto my tank before I ride, then pull it off once I’m at the office. There’s plenty of space for all my stuff, but there aren’t many internal pockets, which would be helpful for keeping things organized. Also, the bag doesn’t come with a rain cover (not an issue here in Southern California). That’s a $10.99 accessory. But selling the rain cover separately helps keep the price of the tank bag low, and at $43.99 it’s a steal.

An awesome little bag, but how about some internal pockets?
