    If any of y'alls are gonna trade your black epeditions for these just let me know. I rather have the smaller ones as I have larger top bags.

    Thanks!

    Nice, crisp new Tetons (late Christmas present) mounted on the 990 but haven't even been on a ride yet :deal


    Wish I'd known the Rocky Mountains were coming!

    Chris - PM sent - if you don't need the waterproof I'll definitely sell mine to you as I'm quite interested in the larger bags - any trade or upgrade path available? Or any other inmates interested in as-new Tetons?

    How have I missed this awesome new product? I must say that this kit equals and maybe exceeds the Adventure-Spec Magadan Panniers. Way to raise the bar. Would be my choice for a RTW trip or Rocky Mountain exploring. Nice job Wolfman. :clap:clap:clap

    I'm looking at these for 2-up camping with my 12 year old on my 990 ADV; how passenger-friendly is the attachment over the seat? KTM racks, will these work with the "Other racks" option?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Those packs look great. I'd personally rather ride with a soft pack system more than rigid panniers most times. Question though do you think these would work with the standard OEM GSA pannier racks? I was thinking I could mount a plate on the left hand (asymmetrical) rack and mount my tent and Kermit chair in that area behind the pannier.

    Do you know if this would work or would I have to buy the Wolfman rack to use these bags?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've got the same thoughts except I'm 4-hour journey away from the nearest Wolfman dealer. I do my fair share of escapading off into the wilderness but I commute on my bike too so security is important. Do they work with the PacSafe cables, & how immune are they to thieves with pocket knives? And, provided they're not ever stolen, how long can I expect them to hold up to wear and tear?
    Sorry, never bought anything from Wolfman before so I've got nothing to hold these up next to. I've got your racks on the way in the mail though. :D

    Also, we need more reviews & pictures. Quality aside these are some good lookin' bags! :clap

    If you're buying wolfman racks and ride off pavement, then I would get one or the other of their bag sets.

    That said, they are not secure. If you really think someone is going to slash them to access the contents, and you need bags for commuting, then consider a set of Seahorse cases with padlocks for your commute - about $150 with mounting hardware. Then you would, in my opinion, have the best of all worlds. :freaky

    While I would agree with your assessment, you know that a determined 10 year old can breech the security of damn near ANY bag, hard or soft, I trust.

    The hard bags may offer an illustion of security, and it may slow down casual theives slightly more than a pac-safe protected soft bag would, slinging terms like secure as if they were absolutley is, perhaps, misleeading (Note Bene, I am not slagging anyone here, just pointing out an alternate view on the use of hard/soft bags).

    For that matter, anyone could just steal the whole damn bike.

    Locked hard cases are much more theft deterrent than soft bags. Period. Secure? Shit, I dunno. I have both, never lock anything, leave the keys in half the time, leave my helmet, tank bag, etc. I just don't ride my bike where it has to be 'secure', except when it's at home and then it's locked in a garage and the key is hidden.

    The question was what bags he should get when he's already ordered Wolfman racks. Duh, that would be wolfman bags. already. :D

    Hi Steve,

    These will work great on the 990 with the "other" rack option.
    http://wolfmanluggage.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&product_id=197
    There is a video on that page as well showing them on a 950.

    You have a couple of options with the straps, you can either move the buckles all the way over to one side or get some of these

    I use these with my 12 year old as well and he does not complain...at least about the straps:D Thanks Steve:clap

    Hey joon1911,

    We are working on a solution as we speak for this transition. The obvious problem here is the bags resting up against the pipe (thus potentially melting) and not really having a full 4-points to mount to. We have seen some guys fabricate their own plate for that area to allow the bags to mount. We should have a solution in the next few months or so...hope that helps.

    2 Questions:

    1. Any chance of getting them cheaper without the waterproof liners? I have tons of wp roll bags and would rather pack a few smaller bags inside than one big one.

    2. Can you post picks of them from behind? I'm thinking about these for an fjr1300. 2 up camping trips with my boy would be better than the egg shaped oem luggage and rolle bags on top would give him arm rests of sorts.

    Okay 3 questions. Do you think I could mount them? I have a trailer hitch on the bike that would be easy to add to. I'd just want the bags up high off the pipe?

    Dusty, how do these fit/work with the rotopax mounts the expedition racks/bags have? Can you show them (if they do) mounted up w/rotopax vertically and horizontally? Thanks mate for yet another great product!

    Good questions I will answer below:

    1. We sell them as a set and don't have that as an option at the moment.

    2. I will see what I can do about pics from behind but it will be on a different bike... The rolies on top are probably not going to come up high enough for arm rests.

    3. These really need a rack or something more stable to mount to. I see that you have some sort of support on your FJR but I really wouldn't know if these would work unless I tried it sorry. You are more than welcome to try them and if they don't work you can return them for a full refund as long as they are in showroom condition and within 30 days.

    Hope that helps...:D
