Oh yes. Mine is an older Joe Rocket one. Small capacity but still, its better than nothing. If I were to start making some very long distance rides, many multi-state ones, then I'd get a larger bag for the ease with which to pack stuff. You just have to remove mine when fueling up.
Today there are a very wide variety of tank bags available. Trust me when I say the magnets are well strong enough for the bag to stay put.
Have fun looking through all the types/designs available.
The only possible negative, potentially, thing I can think of with a magnetic bag is if you are away from the bike someone can walk away with it. But mine (and I'd imagine all of them) has a loop on it where I can run a cable through it to semi-secure it.
I have 2 motorcycles I keep my insurance card and registration in the Tank bag. Easy to switch from each bike, never leave it on bike unattended take it into my work always.
Cellphone, Keys, Wallet all get put in Tank bag, do not like to ride with anything in my pockets.
Paper clips will scratch your tank remember Magnets
i've ridden may miles w/ magnetic tank bags. make sure you clean off dust and dirt each time you put it on. watch out especially for little bits of metal (or your key!) that are attracted to the magnets. just a wipe of the tank and bottom of the bag w/ a reasonably clean cloth. otherwise even light dust will scratch or scuff the paint over time.
if it comes w/ a safety strap, use it. if it doesn't have one, get one that does.
if you ride in the rain, get a rain proof bag, or one w/ a rain cover.
I thought I would post a few pic's of my 2007 classic with HD Fairing. Maybe the info will help other's who wish to add a custom fairing. I when with a 2014 Street glide fairing, a e-bay knock off. I added the accessory switch cover and the lower fork fairing cover under the headlight. To me, it...
I had to make an emergency stop the other day on my 900 (accident avoided), but encountered something unusual. When I pulled in the clutch lever and applied the front brake simultanously, the throttle seemed to freeze with the engine revved up (to around 3-4K) as I braked to a stop. I had just...
Really thinking about removing the heel shifter portion of the shifter. I like to hang my heels off the rear portion of the floorboards and the back part of the shifter is in the way in on that side. I'm used to shifting with just the toe part of the shifter mechanism anyway. Anyone made this...
