Trying to decide between these and the Expedition for a F800gs. How far out do the Expeditions stick out off the rack?

Do you guys have any plans on making a Wolf rack for the new gen (+2012) V-Strom 650?

I'm digging several of the newer Wolman saddlebags but no rack is available....

Beware of Wolfman

Just a little warning. Every time I go to Wolfman's showroom Dusty sells me something. I can never get out of there without a tank bag or duffle or at least a map. In fact last year Dusty even sold me his motorcycle. There is always some new gadget I have to buy. I can't believe they can keep coming up with more stuff I have to have. The worst part is none of it every wears out so my customers and I just have to keep using it. On top of that my girlfriend likes the stuff so I have to buy stuff for her.

I also have to constantly listen to my customers going on about how great the bags are. These guys really don't understand the current model for retail. [Make cheap crap that wears out quickly so you can sell more.] They will never be as big as Wally World.

Eric, Dusty and the whole crew are fantastic.
Ron

Oh yeah I have a few WM things myself from visits to Dusty.

...then again every one of Butler Maps map cases that goes out is indeed a quality WM produced product, so you could possibly add that to your WM list.

you do have one of cases??? if not PM me.
great meeting you Ron at WM ADV day awhile back!

My Bags are pretty close to the exhaust, which made me nervous that at one time or another I would melt part of the bag. I know it has a sacrificial pad, but I would rather not melt anything. I had a piece of this adhesive heat shield left that I had used on my Jesse bags on my 1150. It seems to work pretty good on this Wolfman bag as well. It will keep some of the exhaust heat away from the content of the bag as well.

Not much to see, but here it is. I just traced the sacrificial pad on to the heat shield, peeled off the back and stuck it on to the Wolfman pad. I am most worried about the open areas of the frame and these areas are covered by the heat shield. It lookslike the same stuff I have had on my Jesses for years.



This is on my Xchallenge with the Hotrodwelding frame.

What I did on mine is I cut cutting boards and applied them to both sides. Finding good temp proff boards was a mission but now my bags are protected from dirt and heat!
