Oh, gotcha. I thought maybe it had a separate base that stayed on the bike and you could quick-detach the bag part.

For those of you with Wolfman Denalis -- how are you attaching it at the seat end?

I'm too stupid to attach mine without the straps hanging out all all sorts of dumb places and it's all floppy and sad.

Wunderlich tank bag for 800 GS

I finally ordered one of these after looking at all the rest. The Wolfman bag is very nice...but I can't stand straps going everywhere. I liked the simple solution offered by Wunderlich. After reading about the install I figured even a klutz, like me, could attach it to my GS.

how to connect

I have the version before the Denali.. they look very similiar. Take your seat off and there are 2 connectors to thread the strap through.

Wolfman Explorer Lite on my wife's F650GS.




How I attached the side straps. I have the straps inside a section of bicycle innertube for paint protection.




View from the top.




Front strap detail and key/power connector clearance.




Front strap to frame.




Bars barely touches at full lock.

Works well for me.

Can any owners of either the Wunderlich or Wolfman Rainier tell me if I can fit a Camera with lens inside that measures 5" wide by 10" long?

I can't find specs on the Wunderlich and the Rainer is 11" long but that doesn't tell me what the longest inside space measures.

That will easily fit in the Wunderlich bag.

The main pocket is an oval shape 11.5" by 8". Obviously, the bag tapers near either end, but 5" wide will fit just fine near the ends. You should even be able to add some foam padding around, under, and over the camera and still have room in the Wunderlich bag.

I don't know about the camera and lens, but my Wolfman Rainier will hold 2 Burritos, 1 order of Tacos, and 2 bags of chips (with Guac of course) from Chipotle without squishing the chips

I will see how my Canon fits in the bag and let you know tonight.

That's how I mounted my Rainier as well.

Endurorazor, pm me and I will send you the pics of the Canon Digital XS with 75-300mm lens on it within the Wolfman Rainier bag. The camera and lens fit fine. I haven't taken the time to set up my smugmug account and load pictures up there yet besides the few ones from a couple of weeks ago.

Went with the Cortech Mini..... seems to work fine, not bulky, does not shift around in the rougher riding conditions. Good value for $50.00. (A&S BMW out of California).

Did require a modification under the seat to secure the straps.... similar to mod earlier in the thread...

Having bought and then sold the BMW tank bag I've just invested in the Wunderlich and I've got to tell you, it's absolutely fantastic! Clever design meets excellent fabrication.
