If you go to the Wolfman website and poke around, you will find they sell a kit to mount hardbags to the Wolfman loops. The holes adjacent to the slot where the buckles go are there for that reason.

It will hold alot of stuff. To put gas in, I undo the rear buckles and fold forward. And when standing, isn't in my way.

Completely dust and waterproof is what I was looking for. And some believe hardbags could be detrimental to ones extremities in the event of a crash. I wouldn't put a camera in the Wolfman bags. Tools and clothes for me.

Next?

I am also one of those who believe in hard case are for highways. When things go wrong. The last thing you need is a broken leg from a hard pannier.

I two up ride with my son and he likes riding with the hard boxes because he thinks it will protect his legs if i screw up and drop the bike. Basically because the boxes leave a gap between the dirt and the bike if the bike goes down. Thus preventing the bike from falling on his legs and pinning him under the bike.

That's assuming of course that the pillion was to stay perfectly seated when said screw up occurs.

They are screwed into the end of the bars. You'll see flats machined onto the inserts. Grip the bars securely (vice) and unscrew with the appropriate spanner.

Thanks, I noticed the flat on the inserts, but didn't have anything that would mate up and grip them easily, so just went ahead and used them. I did cut a small piece of aluminum tubing to act as a bushing around the smaller bolt, so should be ok. Might revisit the issue over the Winter.

Cheers!

+1

Never gonna happen.

What's even worse than hard bags are those absolutely stupid 'Peg Packer' mounts for a fuel can - I forget who sells them now (they mount to the passenger footpeg). If ever there was a leg breaker, they're it

RoadDad and Woodsrat over in the Indiana thread in Regionals puts on a Hoosier National Forest ride each of the last 6 or 7 years. Last years sticker is on left. This years on the right. I was able to make it last year for the first time. Not this year.
