That new bike stuff feeling

Just picked up my new 18LTR S2.0 Tank bag by Cortech. As I opened the package I realized, I never really grew up. Way more excited than a guy in his mid 50's should be over luggage. Anyway, the thing looks rock solid and for a change it appears to be high value for the $$. Tried on an Olympia Jacket with all the bells and whistles too. Should never have done that. It will be calling me in my steep tonight. Second job kinda hobby I guess.

Nice looking bag! I just looked it up. Did you get the magnetic mount or the strap mount version? I recently ordered the SW-MOTECH EVO Engage tank bag, 7LTR with mounting ring. I wanted small just hoping its not too small.

I had a terrible experience with a piece of steel sticking to the magnets on my last bikes tank bag. When I got off in to much of a hurry I pulled up on the bag and heard the ssccrrrratttchhhing. I was gutted. Motech makes a great bag. The 7 Ltr is pretty small but it depends what you wanna carry. We're doing 10000Km this year so cameras phones chargers etc... and it turns into backpack so we can take it with us on foot tours. That was the deal maker for me. Amazing how quick you can fill the lauggage.

Yes, mine is intended to act as a glove box more for local running around day to day. If I was going to go on a trip I would definitely be getting something a lot more substantial like the unit you chose, it looks great as far a layout and volume are concerned! Keep us posted on how it works out after you do a trip or two.

Cheers

I just got 4 large boxes delivered which contained panniers, top boxes and accessories so I know what you're talking about.

Yep I'm sure you do. Opening, unwrapping, and that staring we do like we're waiting for them to say something. Awesome. That jacket I mentioned in the original post, well it didn't take long and the missuz decided to make it my Bday present. An X moto 2 from Olympia. She thought the zippers were a bit cold though when I wore it to bed hahahahah.
