Ducati Small Tank Bag
My dealer called today and told me my tank bag finally arrived. So, I pick it up and it turns out to be the dreaded "flies off the bike" small bag, not the big bag with bra I ordered. So, I did a quick search to re-read all the old threads on this bag and, before I return it, I wanted to ask if this is actually the same bag. The only reason I'm even considering keeping it is because it's a great size for carrying my lunch, a camera or other small stuff.
The part number is different than the one mentioned by BlackbirdXX. His part number was 96749006B and my GT bag is 96752607B. Obviously, this difference might simply reflect the difference between his Paul Smart and my GT. But, does anyone know if Ducati addressed the problems with this bag?
Here's a quick description of my bag. The tank protector has 4 straps, 2 up front and 2 in back. It has a hole for access to the gas tank and 3 round, not quite quarter sized magnets. The bag has a clear cover insert for maps with single zip access, a small strap with rubber/plastic grip at the top and a large black plastic "D" ring (2 total) sewn to each side of the bag right where the small strap attaches to the bag. Inside the bag there's a very simple adjustable strap with black plastic clips that attach to the "D" rings.
"Ducati" is stenciled in black on each side of the bag and on the front of the protector. The bag has two chrome zippers.
The magnets "seem" very strong. They attach with a solid "clunk". So, those of you who tried this bag and suffered greatly, do I have the same bag or something different?
