Do you know if this would work or would I have to buy the Wolfman rack to use these bags?

Thanks in advance.
Hey joon1911,

We are working on a solution as we speak for this transition. The obvious problem here is the bags resting up against the pipe (thus potentially melting) and not really having a full 4-points to mount to. We have seen some guys fabricate their own plate for that area to allow the bags to mount. We should have a solution in the next few months or so...hope that helps.

Dusty

2 Questions:

1. Any chance of getting them cheaper without the waterproof liners? I have tons of wp roll bags and would rather pack a few smaller bags inside than one big one.

2. Can you post picks of them from behind? I'm thinking about these for an fjr1300. 2 up camping trips with my boy would be better than the egg shaped oem luggage and rolle bags on top would give him arm rests of sorts.

Okay 3 questions. Do you think I could mount them? I have a trailer hitch on the bike that would be easy to add to. I'd just want the bags up high off the pipe?

Fit w/Rotopax?

Dusty, how do these fit/work with the rotopax mounts the expedition racks/bags have? Can you show them (if they do) mounted up w/rotopax vertically and horizontally? Thanks mate for yet another great product!

Good questions I will answer below:

1. We sell them as a set and don't have that as an option at the moment.

2. I will see what I can do about pics from behind but it will be on a different bike... The rolies on top are probably not going to come up high enough for arm rests.

3. These really need a rack or something more stable to mount to. I see that you have some sort of support on your FJR but I really wouldn't know if these would work unless I tried it sorry. You are more than welcome to try them and if they don't work you can return them for a full refund as long as they are in showroom condition and within 30 days.

Hope that helps...

Love these bags

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!

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!

Question

Does anybody know how these bags behave when they are empty when riding? Are they floppy? Will they have a lower profile?

Thanks

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.

NoFlop

Dan -

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).

Wolfaman Sticker Spotted - Tour Of California

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.

questions

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.
