I've given up on the Wunderlich tank bag. Not only is it much bigger than I was hoping, way too big to do any standing on the pegs. But they want a whopping US$249 for it!





On the German Wunderlich site is sells for 129, which works out to just about US$170 at the current exchange rate. So somebody's planning on making a tidy profit off of that item. But not from me!

I've been waiting for the wunderlich myself. Where did the $249 come from? Are they available now?

I got the price from their web site. But no, it's not available yet.

I haven't used a tankbag for years but I've been considering getting one for my F800GS to carry my camera, phone, and a few other odds and ends. I've been passively watching all the forums that are discussing this topic.

I met another F800GS rider this weekend that had the TT Daytrip tankbag. I was impressed. It was a pretty good looking tank bag that kept a low profile. It would be great so long as you didn't need to carry a weekend's worth of clothes...

Wish I could lay eyes on the Wunderlich one. Based on descriptions (and the fact that my girlfriend has their seat bag on her F650ST) I think the Wunderlich may be better constructed and have better features.

I'll keep watching the forums...

Wolfman Ranier

Wolfman has a new tank bag. It's not on their website yet but I saw it at Bike Night at Beemers-and-More.
http://www.wolfmanluggage.com/index.html
I think they call it the Rainer model. It's a modification of the Denali with skinnier side pockets like the Explorer and other improvements. Improved mounting straps. Designed for the F800GS, and other bikes. If I didn't already have a Denali I would be getting the Ranier. I've had an Explorer on my KLR for five years abd think it is excellent.

That 129 Euro includes the Value Added Tax. The wholesale price would be 19% less. I am not sure about customs on an item like that but that might add something to the price.

Perhaps, but US$79 for customs? And if it's true that the price minus VAT is more like 105, that makes it even worse! Buncha usurious bastiges.

Both the Wunderlich and the Touratech tank bags are made by the same company - Kahedo, who also make seats for both as well. Quality is therefore likely to be the same.

Not sure if it's been introduced yet, but the US are raising the import duty on a number of goods categories from the EU to 100%. The reason is the EU will not accpet imports of US beef from cattle that has been given growth hormones.

Possibly the reason for the price hike.

If I didn't already have a nice TT tankbag left over from my Xchallenge I think I'd get the Rainier.

I knew the Wunderlich stuff was...didn't know about Touratech.

Kahedo lists no bag options for the F800GS on their UK website (I can't read German) and lists Touratech as a "partner" but not Wunderlich.

Wonder why that is....

Thanks for that tip! I had ordered a Wunderlich a few weeks back but canceled after learning there was not even an ETA. So ordered this one (Rainier) and a tail bag for about the same price! Cant wait, my pockets are bulging!

Post a lot of pix when you get it, willya bubwould? It looks too big for me, but it's hard to tell from the one picture wolfman seems willing to put up on their web site.

Wunderlich Tankbag Backorder

I got a reply to my email on the status of my order for the Wunderlich F800GS tankbag today. In Germany (where I placed my order) they will be available at the end of Feb. I would guess a week or two after that in the US. I am going to stick with the Wunderlich. I would have gone with the Wolfman but by the time I added the overseas shipping I was at almost the same price as I am going to pay for the Wunderlich.

Speaking of the new Wolfman bag, when you look at the Wolfman logo, what do you see? I don't get it. When I look at it I see two people having wild monkey sex on a motorcycle... thats it ain't it??

I can see the Wolf's head clear as daylight, but my daughter just can't see it at all, even when I've explained it.
