Expedition paniers

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!

D'oh.

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


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.

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!

Steve

Compatibility with non-Wolfman racks?

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.

Question Security

You are close by so I can have a look at them I presume?

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.

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

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.

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.

Hi Steve,

These will work great on the 990 with the "other" rack option.
http://wolfmanluggage.com/index.cfm?...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
http://wolfmanluggage.com/index.cfm?...product_id=310

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