Giant Loop® designed the minimalist Diablo Tank Bag to please even the ""I don't like tank bags"" rider. The shorter cousin of Giant Loop’s popular Fandango Tank Bag, this little devil is made from the same tough, waterproof ""trucker's tarp"" material and uses the same harness for mounting on sport, dirt, adventure and dual sport motorcycles with either metallic or non-metallic fuel tanks. In the January 2011 issue of BMW ON (Owners News), ""Kit and Caboodle"" columnist Kit J. Vercella hailed Giant Loop's Fandango Tank Bag as a return to simplicity and functionality, following years of tank bags that, he wrote, had ""morphed into large, multi-compartment 'tank suitcases.""

Comments about Giant Loop Diablo Motorcycle Tank Bag:
The Diablo bag was pretty much what I expected. The mounting system is the primary reason I chose it, and it works well, no more loose straps to fall to the side and into the steering well when I take the bag off or fuel up. The zippers can be a bit temperamental, I'm hoping they loosen up with time. The bag is large enough to hold the basics (phone, wallet, etc.) but not meant for the overpacker. Bike Bandit had a tracking number the same evening I ordered it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
