No need to screw the base down, I'd simply thread the straps through the slots, plenty of length. Simple.

Thanks. I did think of that and I may do that temporarily, but I think it's not a great solution long term. Also, threading the straps every time I install the tool bag (it won't be on the bike permanently) is a PITA.

I will have to get creative. Can't quite imagine a solution yet...

I use Rox straps with my WM dry duffel.
I found the D-rings of the bag and the stretch of the Rox straps hold it rock solid on my rear rack.

Great piece of kit.

Went up to the Wolfman headquarters today and picked up the Boulder Beta. Awesome bag so far. Also, awesome couple guys I met. Got to test fit the bag before i dropped the cash on it. Thanks again!

What have you found fits best inside the expedition dry saddlebags to give them some stiffness and integrity? The stock stiffener is crap as it just collapses in on itself.

If the stock removable stiffeners aren't your cup of tea, you have a few options. One could be to attach some adhesive hook&loop (Velcro) to the outside of the stiffener and attach the other side to the inside of the bag. If you're looking to keep it in place, that'll do the trick.

But if you're looking for some real serious solid forms instead, I also had a buddy pick up a couple small plastic trash cans from Wally World and slide those guys down in. Great fit, and he says they were real easy to clean out too.

So far, we've heard some pretty positive stuff about the stock stiffeners. Hope you can find something that works a little better for your application.

Will Blackhawk fit the little Yamaha WR250R?

I know the Enduro tank bag will fit without removing bag when filling up fuel (which is a frequent operation with the tiny tank).
Cheers.

Forgot to mention that I got: The model of tank bag before Rainier (think it is Expedition) and use it on my Super Tenere, also got the tank panniers, medium Duffel bag, 2x Large Rolie bags, rain covers, straps and my latest addition is the Peak Tail bag which is small but looks so good on the WR250R got it mounted on my gear rack on top of Rotopax fuel cell = perfect in the bush :-)
Love the 60 l beta duffel bag system would probably be way to large for my WRR but would fit my Super Tenere and maybe my B-King.
Had my large tank bag for 7 years and never let me down and will never get rid of it only for a very large bag of $
Now, will Blackhawk fit my WR250R without interfere when standing up or fill up fuel?

Great products Wolfman. I am getting ready to order the E-12 saddlebags and the duffle.

I have a recommendation on the Enduro tank bag. When the bag if half full the items will move around in the bag. How about adding a zipper half way up on the bag so if it is half full you can zip it shut around the bag. It will in essence make the bag half size and it can be either inside or outside of the bag.

Thanks

Question dimensions of Rolie Saddle Bag Mount?

Does anyone have the dimensions of the Rolie Saddle Bag Mount (RSBM), that is the length and width of the side saddle piece(s) and the top piece? For extra credit, how much does it weigh?

I was thinking of getting the RSBM for my Husky TE250 to carry fuel on day trips and add Rollie Bags on longer trips. The Husky isn't large and its side panels seem particularly tiny, so before ordering and shipping I'd like to do a paper template on the bike.

thanks a bunch!

Max Weight for Rocky Mountain Saddlebags

Taking off for a 2 week trip using my new Rocky Mountain saddlebags.
Want to put "as much as possible" in the bags to ensure the lowest possible center of gravity but am struggling with finding the right balance. Have any of you experienced folks come up with a good average weight? 20lb per side, more? less?
I have loaded it with 30lbs per side and it seems to me to be above what the bag will be able to handle on the road, especially trails, etc....
