I would like them, but don't think they would fit on my Wolfman racks, I have the 1st generation racks.

I ride a DR650 and I have the Wolfman racks that I run pelican 1430's on 90% of the time. I have the Wolfman waterproof saddlebags for when i go camping. This setup works great for me.
Ive been looking at the wolfman racks and pelicans (various sizes) as well,, I'm going to pull the trigger on Something soon

Epic Panniers

If I go soft bags definitely putting on mounting racks

If I go hard panniers:


Both I think will look pretty good on my bike



What do you think?
I put a set of those "Epic Panniers" on mt DR and love them. They are plenty big for and long weekend camping trip and store pants and jacket easily while I'm at work.

Thanks

He supplies them, just tell him what kind of bike and he has the template....he only makes one size box, power coated inside and out. My DR is more of a commuter and weekend warrior than anything. I think the entire set up with freight was a bit over $500 for everything. I have a buddy with a big GS and I think each of his boxes was over $400 each side plus the rack. If I can figure out photo bucket I'll get pics up.

Did you get them off of a guy named on EBay who was running an ad?

If Matty Matt would ever send a pic of his TW so I can show my brother, I think we may snag that from him in the future to keep at the cabin in WV.

Anyone have first hand experience with the Contour Roam vs Go Pro?

Seems like the GoPro has alot more of a following but the main advantage I see of the Contour seems to be ease of use (the slide on/off button).
