This mean a mounting system for R1150Gs is on the way.....................
The Rocky Mountain bags are pretty mind blowing... built like *tanks*. I really like the details, including the tapered opening, the mounting system, and the super heavy duty everything.
Also, Dusty and the crew took extra time to get me set up right at closing time on a Friday and it's really appreciated. In over 15 years of experience with this company, they have never failed to go the extra mile on customer service.
I personally also really like that they have liners and bags - if its wet out, I like being able to lift the liner out and walk away with dry gear inside, leaving the outers on the bike. They fit the big KTM perfectly.
My daughter approves, too!
good looking bags... are they waterproof?
See the first post in this thread.
I really like the look of these bags. I was wondering if anyone has a pic of them on an 11XXGS with the straps under the seat, cos I usually carry a pillion. It looks like the overhang of the seat at the sides might stop the front strap sitting right. And a dedicated rack would be nice- they made a lot of those old GSs you know- I'm sure you'd sell enough to justify a run of them!
Does anybody know how these bags behave when they are empty when riding? Are they floppy? Will they have a lower profile?
I like them. I think I'll stick with my Expedition bags as I think they are the perfect size, and these may be a little too big, but I really like the design.
I wish the Expedition bags had those handy D-Rings for top attachment. That's a nice addition.
No flop... the pics I posted above are empty. They have a semi-rigid plastic sheet in the bottom as a stiffener. The bags themselves are quite burly fabric. Net result is even empty they are full profile and don't move around or flop in the wind at all (product tested to super-legal speeds).
Couldn't find a generic Wolfman thread so this will have to do.
Wolfman sticker conspicuously displayed on the back of the media reporters MC. Saw it several times throughout the coverage.
Way to go.
An example starts at about 1:20 in. I saw some better closeups during the on air NBC/Universal Sports coverage on Sunday, but can't find them easily online just now.

I am about to pull the trigger on these for my 950 Adv but have a couple questons. One reason I would get a bag this big is to ride with my wife. Is there any problem putting the front strap under the seat. Does not look like it would lessen the stability. I dont have my bike in front of me so do you know if there is room under the seat for the buckle.
Also I either have a HB rear box or I have a pelican case with Rotopax that I carry on a HB rear rack. Can I move the large top buckle enough to the side that my box will still attatch to the rack. I dont think there is enough clearance under the box for the buckle.
Thanks in advance and looks like a great product.
Has any of you mounted these on a Tiger 800XC using the Wolfman racks? If so, can you advise what the outside to outside dimension is for the setup? That is, the measurement from outside of one bag to the outside of the bag on the other side of bike. Thanks in advance.
The Wolfman racks on a Tiger are 21". Plus 10.5 x 2 for the bags (dimensions from Wolfman's site), you're looking at 42" min.
Wow! That makes for a wide ass load! You wouldn't happen to have any photos of the set-up by chance? Rear view shot of rack with bags and without bags would be nice.
Yeah. That's why I went with the Monarch Pass bags on my XC. It's a real bummer that they made them so damn fat. I wish they went wider/lower rather than out.
No... I don't actually own the setup. Like Levian, I went with the Monarch Pass bags, but haven't even had a need to mount them up yet (just use the Hoops around town). If I need more capacity in the future, I'm thinking the Globescout hard cases with a 28L/35L combo, which should give me plenty of capacity for my needs at around 37".
Sorry, I didn't see this until now You should be able to move the buckle enough to the side that it will be out of the way when traveling with a passenger. If not we have these https://wolfmanluggage.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&product_id=310 that you can install instead of the straps with the buckles. Hope that helps!
Wondering if you have come up with anything yet?
C'mon, someone must have tried these on an old oilhead!
Is it possible to run the straps under the pillion seat with the buckles to one of the sides on the r1200gs? It would seem there is enough space on the exhaust side which makes the setup better for 2up riding.
They do velcro joining straps which would make it easier to fit the straps under the seat- would do away with the buckles.
