Icon Urban Tank Bag

By FastFred Ruddock

I have done some extensive testing with this item prior to writing this review. In the beginning I was not very impressed with the bags performance. The reason is the bag attaches with four magnets. If the bag is empty or lightly packed it tends to come loose and flap or slap in the wind. However with a proper heavy load the Icon Urban Tank Bag works well at interstate speeds. I have regularly exceeded 80 and even 90 miles per hour using this bag on trips over 200 miles. To be fair with the name “urban” the designers may not have intended this item to be use on rural open interstates.

The bag will easily hold a weekend’s worth of cloths. It also doubles nicely as a backpack. You can place maps under the clear map pocket. The handle at the top of the bag fits nicely under my FLTH’s gas tank door. After a few thousand test miles I can attest this bag will not damage you paint job. Riders Discount provided this item for testing.
