I came across this link on TripMachine Accessories for Royal Enfield & I am considering purchasing the Tank Pouch for my Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500. I want to get some opinions before I decide to buy it!

   That's a very good looking pouch!
   Be careful about it being a magnetic, though, as there have been a lot of reports of the magnetic style rubbing and damaging paint. They don't show the attachment side of the thing, so no way to tell if there's any proper protection for your paint.
   That said, if it's made of real leather, the $45.00 price is very nice!

Is there some type of plastic protective coating that could be applied to the paint to prevent scratches?  I have seen some sort of product on the front end of Porsche and Audi cars to prevent rock chips.

   I haven't found anything specific to the RE.
   Plenty of choices out there, but most seem to assume specific contact area(s) on the tank, usually on the center line.
   Application of clear vinyl tape (say. 2 inches wide) in the contact areas would help, and depending on your artistic ability could come out nicely, but down the road it will need to replaced to keep a decent look.
   I went with the parcel grills to avoid replacement of old tape.

I had a ducati tank and fairing done with a protective plastic that was visually undetectable, and it did the job exceptionally well.
Something like this.
