Witness the German-made Bags Connection "City Bag" Quick-Lock Tankbag. One thing we have never sold at Pirates Lair is a full or midsize tank bag. Why? Most are butt-ugly and take away the beauty of these motorcycles. I've simply never found one "worthy" of our product line.. It's a midsize bag specially designed for motorcycle gas tanks that slope steeply downward to the rear of the gasoline filler cap like the BMW K1200RS, K1200GT, K1200S, K1200R, K1300S*, and R Sport. Despite the narrow form in the front, the expandable "City" tankbag offers a volume of 8 liters (12 liters when expanded.) Approximate City Bag Tankbag Dimensions: Height: 6.5" tall (tapers down in a wedge at rear) Length: 13.5" long Width: 10.5" (front radius) to 9" (rear width)

The Bags Connection City Bag features the innovative new SW-Motech Quick-Lock/Quick Release gas-cap mounting system. No straps.. no magnets.. no adhesive panty strips. Pull one pin and the bag lifts off the bike. The tankbag only lightly touches your gas tank at the back of the tank by the rider due to the unique mounting system. For the most part, 80% of the bag hovers over the tank with about 1/4" clearance so there's fewer worries about scratching your paint. Rain cover and shoulder strap is included and has it's own storage compartment. Lastly..we offer (because we love you) an optional map holder (not pictured) for those who don't own/use a GPS which snaps directly to the City bag and removes in seconds when you don't need it. Trust me.. this bag is cooler than freon.

The optional Bags Connection map holder is 10.5" long x 10" wide - big enough to fit several maps, a cell phone, pda, Walther PPK, iPod, and a small ham sandwich with sandwich stacker-style pickles. We've even received reports that some customers put their fancy new iPad inside, although we do not suggest doing this in wet weather. The Map Holder secures in seconds via velcro at the rear and two clips up front that attach to the front of the tank bag. Finally, a map holder that's big enough to use easily!

Exterior size: approximately 10" wide x 10.5" long

Notice of New Hardware: As of April 1, 2012 the hardware kits for attaching our Bags Connection City bags to your bike has been slightly redesigned. The kits are now BLACK in color (rather than the Silver pictured on this page) and a little sleeker, but functionally similar. I have NOT upgraded the pics on this page to show the new all black hardware as visually, it's very hard to see in pictures where the silver stands out better.
