If you are very particular, you can coat the tank area where the bags sit with a clear decal coating like used for numberplate backgrounds.
How roomy are the wolfman's?? Ive got the Wolfman Ranier tank bag. Great tank bag, hell it even fits my hard hat, but it gets in my way when I stand. Was thinking of trying tank panniers instead, 90% of the stuff I carry in the tank bag is small enough I could split it up between the two sides I think. Anything bigger, either Ill have my panniers on or I can throw my top box on.
