Well that was easy to prove my point.

Maybe, but I find some owners feel picked on. We can't have that.

Love the Wolfman bags... I have a few. With a steel tank, I'm a fan of metro-magnetic tank bags. They tend to stay put the best and actually rub the paint the least... if you keep it's bottom clean.

Yeah, I've got a couple of them and they seem to stay in place well.
The OEM is all over the place off road. Always manages to fall to the
side just as I need to turn the bars. I'll try this and see.

Damn it. I was hoping to milk a little more time out of the day.

Dallara nailed it. Just in the office bored to tears and found that KTM photo.
One thing led to another and..........

Now I have to back up and congratulate Jaumev on his stunning sticker mobile.

That really is turning out very nice. I may have to get rid of the KTM and go back to a Tenere.
(See the lead in?)


I actually just ordered a new Christmas present for the Tenere. The OEM bag slides all
over so much I've got to try something with a more stable harness system.




Well, I'm not gonna' say it...

You did hook some nice ones, though, Pluric!

Regarding the tank bag, did you consider the "Bags Connection" ones - the City and GS - that hook into a ring mounted at the gas cap? I've got one of the City ones - complete with electrical hook-up - on mine and it's truly *TITZ*! It can't touch the tank to scratch it, yet it doesn't move around a femtometer... And it's on and off in about 3 seconds to re-fuel. Best tank bag set-up I've ever owned.

Oh, and I'm glad to hear you're not really licking Dreamsicles and drinking that Orange Slush stuff... I hear that makes you wear gay shoes.

Damn... Sorry to hear that. Was it "R3B/Rema Disease" or "Rick West Syndrome"?

And hey, don't give the "too little, too late" whining! How the hell was I supposed to know you were looking for a new bag? You're almost beginning to sound like a Katoom Kupcake...

+ 1 on the Bags Connections quick lock tank bag. Very handy, and quick on and off, no tank contact scratches, and easy to drop the tank bag in the side cases of your blue S10 when visiting the fem biker bar.
