    Tried the search but am not finding what I am looking for.
    I am wondering which Wolfman Expedition Rear Bag would work best on the F800GS, small or large? I have been looking at the Giant Loop bags, but am undecided on whether that is the right bag for me. The Expeditions seem to be drawing my interest a lot more.

    Thanks,

    I just ordered the large, as it is on CLOSEOUT sale for $122 from Wolfman. Also ordered the duffel that attaches to the back of it, as it was also on sale for $41. Can't beat that deal!

    One of my riding buddies has used the large on a KLR as well as a GS1200, and now a DRZ400. I figure it will work perfectly on the F800GS!

    Hi I missread your post at first thought you wanted a tank bag. I love their small expedition tank bag it doesn't get in the way, fits well and fits just enough!

    On the rear bags I can't express how much I love the giant loop great expedition bag for the f800gs! It is waterproof, easy to pack and feels like it isn't there when you are riding. Check out my ride reports I did with the bag!

    I bought the large and it works very well! Took it on a few trips this year and it lashed down solidly, didn't leak, and just worked. You got a hell of a deal on that thing and I think the duffel would be sweet as well. I am using a SealLine dry bag behind mine but having the duffel that attaches would be most excellent!

    Here are pics of my newly acquired setup. Looks good in the test fitting. Hopefully get to use them in a couple of weekends. Just click the picture for a link to my album.
