Good info, thanks.... but ....
I'd retort that the Wolfman don't need the inner bags to keep items dry so I'd deduct that from the equation
Concerning the rack, what makes yours different that a rack isn't needed, what keeps the bags from rolling under towards the wheel with the weight of the contents??
BTW, not knocking you guys ... I've got a Fandango on my Dakar and I'm planning on getting the Buck and Roll to add to it when I move it over onto the big GS for longer rides.
