Chase Harper Sportbike Tank Bag The short, fat tanks of many modern sport bikes have advantages for performance. More weight on the front tire, greater fuel capacity, and a tighter riding position are all consequences of the design. Unfortunately, most tank bags don't share this contemporary styling.

Chase Harper's 650 Sportbike tank bag has been designed for those beetle-like tanks. A small, curved base will perch atop the apex of the tank. The 650 comes with the option of a magnetic or strap mounting system. Either method will create a secure hold and release easily for carrying away with the rubberized handle or hide-away backpack straps.

A reversible map pouch is large enough to see two folds of your AAA map or nearly an entire sheet of printed paper. Mesh pockets on the top and sides provide a visible place to put small items. If you are like me and always second guess whether or not you packed your phone charger, you could stow it under the mesh for constant reassurance. The main compartment is large enough to carry your hydration pack and some extra gear. The whole thing gives you 9.5 liters of storage space.

The largest bonus, as with a lot of Chase Harper's gear, is the stitching. The 1,000 denier Cordura is sewn with internally bound seams that are bar-tacked at stress points. The shape of this bag is a little odd, in that it has straight walls on the sides. That means it sits 5 inches straight up. I suppose they were trying to maximize the capacity while maintaining a small footprint.
