Tank Bag question

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' started by Bracken, Aug 1, 2009.

  1. Hi guys,

    I just picked up the Aldi tank bag, thought it would be good for the days with work where i dont need to take alot, or just running around home to save loading up the big gearsack and rack on the old zzr.

    Just a quick one tho, does anyone keep their wallets in the bag?
    How does it go with the magnets are cards? Any dead card issues?


  2. Hi Braken,

    When touring I generally keep Wallet, phone etc in the tank bag. Generally in the rear of the main bag so I can get to it easily when I stop. Never had any problems with cards and have done many K's like this. When the bag is on the talk the magnetic field is fairly closely coupled to the steel of the underlying tank.

  3. Thankyou very much!

  4. Have been doing it for years and never had a problem.

    Mythbusters conclusively showed that magnetic fields have no affect on stripes on credit cards.
