routing cables to the inside of the bag - if there is no access.

I use a soildeing iron...you can poke a pole and seal threads all in one shot.
same with plexiglass and any other plastic material.

Then don't...

For some that already have the quick release bag, not paying $180 bucks and waiting for infinite backorders it may be worth it.

Sorry - I should have been more clear, the Bags Connection Enduro. Twisted Throttle and F800Depot.com sell it.

Anyone try any of the Marsee tank bags? I like the feed through idea for wiring up doo-dads on the inside. I just wish I could find something that was waterproof...

I'm waiting for Wunderlich to start shipping this one:



It's got a waterproof interior liner, isn't too big (10 liters/20 liters expanded), is easily removable, the map sleeve is double-sided, and most important, it doesn't have those fugly side straps that most of the others have.

Thanks for the reply, David. That looks about what I'm looking for. So not in the States yet, hm? Any word on price?

No, it's not shipping here yet, and no official US price yet either. But BMW Santa Cruz is supposed to call me when they get their first shipment. It's listed for €129 on the German web site, which today is about US$177. You can download the English Wunderlich catalog here. Lots more pics of the bag inside, as well as a bunch of other lust-worthy farkles.

I got the small Wolfman Expedition bag from Aerostitch (Link) for $107 plus shipping. In stock. Doesn't interfere with key.

Good: Waterproof (except map window, which is removable); Not too big, not too small; Sits well on the faux tank.

Bad: Map window is a bit smaller than 1/2 page, and not waterproof; A couple more steps to open and close (but that's part of the waterproof design).

Anyone got recomendations for a replacement map window, preferably which will take a 5.5" x 11" sheet without folding, preferably loading from the bottom (toward the rider)?

Ask Eric at Wolfman, he'll point you in the right direction. Not sure how your window attaches, but if it's Velcro he probably has a bigger one from another bag that will stick. I like the standard zip-open kind of bag, leaning toward the Denali.

When I visited Eric at Wolfman today, he said some of what I didn't like about the map window which came with my small Explorer bag was actually a valid warranty problem, and gave me a replacement map window.

Eric also said they are working on a redesign of the Wolfman Denali Tank Bag to make one specifically fit to the new F650GS/F800GS/R1200GS/R1200GSA's.
