Tail Rack with Wolfman Compatibility??

I've talked the old lady into taking a little 3 day trip up around Utah this weekend. I've always just run my wolfman bags and duffle over the seat and have had ample room for someone elses gear. The problem i've just realized is I don't imagine the wife will be too happy sitting on top of a duffel bag, so I should probably pony up for a tail rack.

I was just about to order the altrider one when I saw on the f800riders board that they are incompatible with the wolfman side racks. I see that wolfman has come out with their own top tacks but only for the DR650, R12GS, and the Tiger 800XC (Are you kiding me!? the tiger but not the F8?? come'on wolfman...). I then found a thread on here about the MOD rack that can work with a spacer kit, but I'm hesitant to order from Canada as I need it to be here by Friday. I have no clue about touratech but i've got a big coupon that could bring the price down to altrider level.

What am I missing?

Hmm, I see their borrego rack and that might work but it says:

Due to demand, please allow 2-3 weeks for this part to be shipped from the date of the placement of the order.


So I guess that's out.

Call them and ask. It said the same when I ordered my bags and rack and they shipped them out the next day.

I was looking at adventure desings website and they had a pic of the wolfman racks with a tail rack. I called them up and they assured me the altrider will fit with the wolfman. Oh jeez, I've played this game with a parts guy before. Against my better judgement I ordered the altrider. It should be here in time, the only question though is whether "hold on lemme go ask" parts guy is right or random source from another forum is right.

Either way, I'll post up some pics. Oh, and if anyone on here is runnning the altrider/wolfman combo, feel free to jump in and reassure me.

Thanks for the input everybody.

Just in case anyone ever ends up searching for this, the altrider rack fits just fine with wolfman saddlebag racks.
