The bags are awesome. Clearly designed by a real traveler. Lots of useful features. I think they're too big on a wrr, but they definitely work, and for me eliminate a top bag. These are just tossed on with random junk in them. Not strapped down or adjusted well. Wolfman racks that work, but larger hoops would support them better.

Thanks alot for that!! do you really believe they are to big for a WRR?

I'm in the planning stages of an 18 month plus trip RTW and its big toss up between these, the wolfmans and a giant loop at this point.

any feed back would be much appreciated

I have no problem using them, and like I said they eliminate a top bag, getting everything low. They just look big on the bike is all. I think they're the best bags out.

I would recommend larger hoops to support. Check dualsportracks.com I had Andrew make me racks for my new 690. They'll be perfect.

Not to hijack the thread, but are you selling the WR in favor of the 690?

Here are some on a DRZ.
It will look much the same on a WR 250.
I have the Wolfman racks, they work great!
