This Oxford tank 'n'tailer bag is FANTASTIC!!
Obviously it is cos is an Oxford product but really, honestly I can't fault it.
I was abit concerned it might 'wobble' as it has no magnetic flaps but having used it afew times I have absolutely NO worries on that front now.
My CBR500R uses it (already have Oxford tank bags for my other Bikey's) and it fits her perfect. I admit I wasn't sure at first, didn't seem to sit 'right' but again, in use it's fine. Doesn't get in the way in any shape or form - infact I hardly notice it!
The ripstop material is VERY tough - and waterproof too (2 hrs of full on mizzley rain proves the point).
It fits a fair bit in too - 500ml water bottle, spare (short-cuff) gloves and afew other bits besides.
Huge, clear map/phone pocket and key stash pocket.
The base is nice and thick, so it won't wear through for a good while.
Magnets are SUPER-STRONG!!!
I way prefer this tank 'n' tailer to the old tank bag my CBR used to use which had the magnets in the flaps....
The headstock strap isn't a buckle but I think the double D-ring is more secure and less harmful (scratchy) to my Bikey.
Only VERY minor niggle is I wish there were 2 zips on main compartment but it's not a biggie for me and actually makes it more secure & waterproof. Also means I am less likely to overstuff the bag and then ruin the zip!
I haven't used it as a tail bag yet, not sure I will but is really good to know I CAN if needs be....
I've tried it out and it's the EASIEST tailpack I've used to fit securely to the pillion pad. Looks good too....
I have absolutely no doubt this bag is going to last a good many years, but when it does die I'll definitely buy another! And from the BESTEST, LOVELIEST Lady Bikers too!!
Overall my CBR is over the moon I brought this PROPER nice Oxford bag for her and if she's happy then I am too!!
Thanks all you LOVELY Lady Bikers 😇
