i just dont know about the longevity and durability of their waterproof expedition bags
Put a set on my XR650L last year. They performed admirably in ~6000 miles of both dusty and wet weather. I highly recommend them.

They are about six pounds a pair. Just the bags racks are about 8 (it depends on the rack).

Strength of the Wolfman Rack compared to Hard Pannier Racks?

I was wondering if anyone has any comparisons between the strength of the Wolfman Racks for the Expedition Bags or maybe going with another companies racks made for hard panniers (ie: Touratech, Metal Mule, Hepco & Becker, SW, etc) because they have the cross brace between the two sides to make them stronger. Because I eventually need a hard set of panniers for my KTM 990 Adventure for some planned road rides in the future and thought it might be a much stronger option - for both bag attachment and crash protection.

Hey Eric, any chance for real pics of each set of racks you guys offer? I was thinking that one of them might fit one of my bikes (you do not make a rack for my bike, actually, no one does)

The Racks are bike specific. Designed to fit on the designed bike. You would be better off either getting raw hoops from Berg, or Getting Racks like Hepco-Becker or something and use our "Other " Kit to attach the bags.

The one in the picture is the small Ortlieb Dry Duffel (10" x 19") It holds my 2 man tent and other camping odds and ends.

I also have the medium Wolfman Expedition Dry Duffel (11.5" x 21" x 11") for larger carrying needs. Add to this the small Wolfman Expedition tankbag.

All the above, along with the Expedition Saddlebags, have proven to be a great combo on the XR.

I bought them all from Aerostich.

Great ride report and great pictures :)

I think I'm gonna order me a set soon. My main concern is just vandals lifting the saddle bags if you're away from your bike for a few minutes in a bad part of town. In india you could go into a bakery to get some food and your bags would be gone. That's my main worry

Have been looking at the new bottle holsters and am planning on attaching 2 per bag. Do they go 2 each on the rear, or 1 front/1rear?
Pix always appreciated.

Was also giving some thoughts to going without racks. Again, info & pix appreciated,
