I Googled:
690 rally raid side racks and wolfman bags
There are a few images.
One thing I forgot to mention the straps are attached to the bags and leave nothing on the racks unlike our previous "Other" kit.

Woof!

Agreed, but I hate to source/purchase "other" racks. I have the Wolfman racks on my DRZ and I am afraid of a lesser quality rack for my GS. Not to say other manufactures are inferior in any way but I like my "systems"!

The end game is to sell your bags. I find it odd a manufacture would recommend or depend on products, other than their own, to be able to use your products. Working with industry partners is fine but then again it makes it just another "source" the consumer has to chase. I know your supplier has quit making the "Wolfman" racks but is there a new rack in the works from you?

I completely understand about systems. You may find it odd that we have adapted our bags to fit other side racks, by doing this it has allowed our customer to use the racks they have or any rack out there. Especially on bike models we did not have a rack for. Our distributors love this as shipping racks around the globe is expensive for them. Let's put it this way, Our Saddlebag Strap has allowed us a much broader spectrum of bikes and users than we ever would have had. I could go on and on. Touratech, Givi, Hepco-Becker all make great side racks. I have tested them. So are we working on other racks, not at the moment.
Woof!

Time to hit Happy Trail then but I find them expensive at $300 for plain 5/8 tubing. Plus the Rotopax inserts, those small bags that fit in the hoop etc. Oh well.

I agree. I love Wolfman! I practically turned my KLR into a rolling showroom demo for their products (toolroll, fender bag, tank bag, panniers) and I'm well on the way to doing the same on new F8 Adv. I endorse them wholeheartedly to everyone. I have a set of Rocky Mountains ordered and if a new stainless (or anodized alum) D-ring later becomes available, I'll be ordering and replacing my current straps.

Perhaps it would be wise to keep the current economy straps for those that favor value and make the new premium straps an "upgrade" for those that don't want to see any unsightly rust on a new machine.

Thanks for listening Wolfman.
