Because of this thread I just bought the Wolfman Express for my F650GS from Sierra Adventures ( from the Vendors forum ). Got a call this morning indicating that they were a little back ordered and would have them in stock Friday'ish. So I should receive it next week sometime.

Wolfman Install

Hook and Loop straps from local home town type hardware store. One inch wide.



Remove factory straps from rear of bag and replace with home made stainless split square ring.



Loop straps through what I think were made for mounting BMW tank bag.



Make connections at front using straps that came with bag to frame making sure you do not cover ignition. Then cinch down rear straps.



Nice clean install.




Set more mouse traps or find cat that will pee in to a bottle for ya.

That looks so much better than what I just did I need a re-do. Is your tank bag still easily removable?
OK, what did you do to the top of the bag? The keeper strap is getting in the way of my steering head and blocks the steering lock. I finally sewed some velcro on the keeper strap then put a piece of sticky on velcro on the back of the ignition surround. I need some sliders to keep the ends of the straps from sliding around.

Whys is this so difficult
