Soft bags for XC? Suggestions please

Got a '14 Tiger in the works. Not interested in hard bags/panniers at the moment and I am looking at options for throw-over-the-seat waterproof bags from Wolfman, Ortlieb, or.....? Also, are bags of this ilk going to require any kind of hardware or rack to keep them off the muffler? Suggestions, experience and practical knowledge welcome.

I'm using Givi racks , and N/R waterproof bags. Seems like the racks were a couple hundred bucks , and the bags were 100.00. I can't imagine not needing something to keep the bags off that muffler.

I've been looking at Twisted Throttle Dryspec bags. They don't appear to require a rack as they stack vertically.

i saw those... but I already have a motofiz camp bag.... The downside is that sits up high on the rear seat. On the plus size, it holds a crap ton of stuff. Gotta see how that is going to work just yet.

Wolfman racks and bags. Although the racks aren't made anymore. Nothing gets in.

Packed for two weeks in Labrador and Newfoundland:


I'm running Wolfman Expedition Dry saddlebags on Givi racks (running softbags rackless on this bike doesn't work very well -- even though the heat shield on the muffler does a good job of keeping the right bag safe, there's nothing to keep the left bag from swinging inwards toward the wheel). On the tail is a CJ Designs rack with Rotopax mount, Rotopax 2-gallon gas can, and Twisted Throttle DrySpec tail bags (on shorter trips I just use one bag or the other). The extra gas can on the pillion seat was actually for the friend I was riding with -- it kept threatening to fall off his bike, and I had room for it.

This setup works great for me.

Check out Giant Loop coyote or Great Basin. No need for pannier racks and they store the weight really low.

Wolfman Expeditions on used Wolfman racks. 38-42 liters.
Pelican im2600 Storm Case. 35 liters.

I absolutely love this set up.

Givi PLR6401 Side Case Racks Triumph Tiger 800XC 2011-2014 (from Revzilla) and Wolfman bags:



Easy to get on and off the bike, the rack's quick disconnect nature is awesome, the bags are sturdy, completely waterproof and dustproof, Wolfman's products and customer service have always been excellent. Well designed, too. You can load them lightly or stuff them to the gills, rock solid all day long. No slapping or flapping about.
Highly recommended.

Another vote for the Wolfman bags. I ran mine on the Wolfman racks also before selling the bike.

Steel pony gascoyne - great design excellent quality.

I use Barret racks - but just about any racks will do.

(Steel pony and Barret both Aussie brands)

Put a strap around each one to pin it to the rack and these bags can go anywhere your Tiger can go

Steel pony is a small boutique company - if you want anything special (extra tie offs, extra pockets, different size) talk to Peter and he'll sort it out.

I don't have a pic of the bags with me but you can find them at steelpony.com.au
