    We add a 1/8" Bunji Cord assembly to put gloves or what ever under during Gas stops etc. Currently only offered on the New Blackhawk Tank Bag.

    I've got a set of BRMoto side racks for my DR650 (Wolfman OEM I believe). I'll be ordering a set of your Expedition Dry Saddle Bags and wanted to ask whether you thought the older Wolfman or newer universal strap system was faster/easier to get the bags on and off the bike? In other words, since I have racks that are compatible with the older mounting system, would it be worthwhile to get the older straps.

    Thanks!

    Both systems work. They take about the same time to attach to the side racks. The New Saddle Bag Strap allows the webbing to move easier thus making the compression of the bag easier.

    I have bags with both the old and new. I think the old system is quicker to clip in and out of the BR racks (the old style with the wire hoop). But as noted above the new system is easier to compress the bags and also works well if you move the bags to a different rack. Time off and on the bike is about equal for either style.

    BTY if you really hated the new style, I think you could cut off the short loop that goes around the frame and use the buckle as old style (?).

    Actually no, as the Webbing is going through and around the End Slot of the Chrome slide, and Not through and around the Center Bar on the Chrome Slide.
    Woo!

    PS The New Saddle Bag Strap is Awesome.

    If he cuts the buckle off the new style straps, it's simple enough to re-thread around the centre bar as per the old style. Or, if you didn't want to destroy the new fixings, I'm sure Wolfman would sell you the buckles separately to re-thread them in the old style.

    I really appreciate the information and opinions! Is there any chance the link to the old style instructions for the Expedition Dry Saddlebags could be fixed? Under the Instructions tab, both links below "Older strap-style mounting instructions (Pre-October 2013):" are broken.

    Used my new-ish medium sized Wolfman Expedition bag on a rented XTZ1200 on a vacation in NZ. Worked a treat- the D rings to thread the straps through were really useful to stop it slipping sideways on the small Givi top plate when I was using the bag to carry a small amount of gear a couple of days. Great piece of kit.

    Hi,

    Is the Blackhawk tank bag too big for a 2014 KTM 690 enduro R? Just got the bike and previously had a 2010 BMW R1200 GS which could handle any tank bag. Or should I go for the Enduro size?

    Just got the Blackhawk and installed it on my GSA. Fits the shape of the tank very well and when the straps are tight, very secure. I do have to trim the straps down and it is a bit of a pain getting the front back on correctly after gassing up but part of that may be me. I've never used a strap on bag before. I would say its a keeper, good price, good quality.

    I just wanted to give you guys a shout of appreciation.

    I swang in to the Longmont store just before crating my KLR for South America, last year.

    I love my Expedition tank bag, waterproof duffel, Rock Straps, clip on carabiner keyring and Wolfman t-shirt, which I proudly wore in Antarctica all winter long. It is now one of only four shirts I am schlepping around South America.

    My Wolfman sticker washed off my panniers down in the Salar de Uyuni, however. Very sad.

    I used one strap instead of both that were shipped with my tank bag. When I fuel up I unhook the lower part, as the top one wants to fall off the bike. Not the handiest but the bag will tip up and stay there while I fuel up. Don't have to try and find the loose strap that way.

    Hi Wolfman,

    I have a bunch of Wolfman bags (Rocky Mtn panniers, Enduro tank bag) but am having trouble installing my Enduro tool bag. I'd like to install it onto my Touratech rack on the rear of my 690 Enduro.

    I can't seem to find a good way to secure the bag to the rear rack. Does anyone at Wolfman have any ideas for me that doesn't include removing the rack and drilling into my plastic? (I realize that is the official installation process but I don't want to do that because I have the rack.)

    gen,
    Thank You for being a Wolfman Customer. Since you want to keep the Tail Rack, you will need to make a "Washer" to seal the cut outs on the rack. you can use bar stock or a cutting board. Since this not per the "official" instructions you will have to get creative.
    Woof!
