Wolfman Beta Plus Rear Bag

Wolfman describes them as a duffel bag with legs -- a simple way to add capacity without requiring side racks. Beta Bags hug the bike via the seat channel, yet stay clear of the exhaust (on most bikes). The bags solidly mount by three quick release straps, one around the rear of the bike, the front each to a passenger peg/bracket or sub-frame.

A full access Crescent top zipper opening for full access to the contents. Wolfman added Non-skid/non-scratch material to the bottom (the same material they use on their Tank & Tail Bags.) Silver interior accents for better interior visibility plus new and improved raincovers. Wolfman kept the ever so useful side pockets, carry handle, duffel mounts and the 4 outside compression straps, and the ultra-durable Ballistic Fabric Body.

Dimensions:

  • Seat Overhang: 5" 
  • Overall Width: 29"
  • Height (from top of seat): 9 1/2"
  • Length: 11"
  • Seat Channel Opening - Top: 10"
  • Seat Channel Opening - Bottom: 14"

Capacity:

  • 45 Liters, 2750 cu.in.

Note: Additional contents and stuff sacks pictured sold separately.

Great bag!!! great price!!!
I bought this for an upcoming bike tour across the country this summer. So far I have used it a few times going camping. This bag is amazing. I love the thing. Fits all my camping gear inside including my clothes and other useless items. The bag is lined on the inside which keeps stuff dry for the most part. I haven't been caught in a downpour yet but I think it would keep most stuff dry. I really wish however they gave you a free rain cover to go with it and also a few more small pockets on the outside. and a shoulder strap would be cool too. It has a ton of straps though so don't get too confused trying to insall it. May take a minute but then its a breeze.

Wolfman Beta Plus Rear Bag
I picked up this bag for a 2000 mile trip on a Triumph Bonneville and it worked perfectly.

It's easy to install, and easy to take off the bike and throw in the tent or carry in to the hotel for the night. When full, there are plenty of ways to attach extra gear to the outside of it. I've also used it on a weekend trip with about half as much gear, and the built in straps allow you to squeeze the bag down to size so you don't have to worry about it being loose when its not full.

I Highly recommend this bag!

Great Bag at a Great Value
This soft bag fit my 990R Adventure perfectly.
The cut / shape of the bag straddled the seat so well it seemed to be made specifically for the bike.
It will be great for additional gear on an extended trip. It is cavernous yet contents are easy to find once inside due to the large zippered opening.
If your an Adventure rider wanting to keep things light by using soft luggage, this is a great bag at a great value.

Awesome bag
This bag worked great. Took it on a 4 day mountain ride and strapped it to my KLR with a KLR brand tail bag and even with Wolfman dry saddle bags (fit like a back rest when full). Although it doesn't seem to be meant to fit with all of this other gear it fit well (I was worried because I couldn't find any other reviews talking about this mounting option). Durable and got very dirty but cleaned up easily and back to new.

Good quality
Bought this bag two weeks ago and tested it on my Scrambler last weekend. It's a good bag for an overnight trip, held lot's and fixed to my bike ok if a little fiddley at first. It's the sort of bag that needs to be filled to make the shape sturdy. If you are not going to fill it at least on the scrambler I would probably look elsewhere otherwise great product.

Great bag, great design
i needed a large bag that would easily swap between bikes (triumph thruxton, bmw f800r) and did not need any type of rack or hardware installed. fits both bikes perfectly, really quick on/off. can be a bit floppy if you are going somewhere and it is empty, definitely designed to be packed full. still very happy with this bag, but for the price it would have been nice if they threw in the optional rain cover.

awesome fit for my KLR650
yeah, a little pricey but the quality is superb and the bag fits snug and out of the way on the back of the seat. with the Beta you are paying for USA quality and ease of use.
a bunch of other Wolfman bags attach to the Beta for added space.

Worth the money
This is a great device, quite large and easy to put on and take off. my only two issues is that it has buckles for a shoulder strap but doesn't actually come with a shoulder strap and for the price it would have been good if it was actually waterproof. I am station in the UK and rain is def the norm here.

Excellent Bag for Price
Super happy with this bag. I use it everyday on my DRZ400 for groceries to beach towel, etc.

Loaded it up with camping gear for overnighter with a second small duffel strapped to the rear of the bags. Carries a tonne. Durable enough for off road riding on logging roads.

Easy to get on and off for the price. Super stoked on these bags.

Great bag
Great luggage bag for trips and camping. Very well made and comes with the attachments to secure to your bike - no need for bungie cords. Love it! Only wish I'd gotten one sooner.

I needed a large bag for camping and this Beta Plus bag looked like it would do the job. After a 3-day camping trip touring Vermont I can say that this bag is excellent and it works even better than I thought it would on my NC700X. I really like the "legs" on the bag, tools and other heavy items in the bottom keeps the CG low. Sits on the bike well, easy on and off, useful straps, great side pockets. It's not waterproof but dry bags/plastic bags took care of that problem.
MarkRI on Aug 29, 2014
This design fits my Triumph Scrambler, holds enough for moderate touring and is well made.

I researched tail bags online and based on the reviews I read, and feedback I received from fellow riders, I decided this is the best product to fit my needs.
Harold S on Jun 10, 2014
Quality product that was endorsed by a quality team at Revzilla that will hopefully assist with me having some quality adventures on my DRZ 400 in outback Australia.

Need additional space for tent and other camping gear to fit on my BMW F650 Dakar. This seems like it will fit with my Wolfman Tail Bag and Expedition Dry Saddle bags mated to my Happy rails SU side racks.

My girlfriend is looking for a bag for her 2002 SV650S and doesn't know whether to get the Wolfman Beta Plus Rear Bag, or the Wolfman Expedition Dry Duffel. She is concerned with how the bags will mount to her bike. What do you recommend?
Kevin M on Aug 26, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Dear Kevin,

First of all I need to apologize for my terrible English. I have the Beta plus rear bag and it fits great in my BMW R1200R. Enough room for a short or medium trip it holds perfectly in the rear seat of my bike. At first I was concerned if it would hold still while riding in the not so smooth roads here in Brazil but it did.
you choose to buy this item I think you will not be disappointed.

I can send photos if you want of the bag being used in real life conditions.

All the best,

Fernando
If i were to leave this bag on my bike while im away from it, can i somehow lock it to my bike/lock it closed? i would assume a regular padlock or something would be ok on the zipper, but what about locking it to my bike somehow?
A shopper on Mar 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Don't know of a way to secure it to my bike short of wrapping a cable lock around the bag and the seat strap The bag is large enough that I think it would discourage a potiential thief from trying to take the whole thing. maybe a fine piece of fish line attached to the bag and the bike that actives a loud sonic alarm in the bag if some one removes it?I
Hi everyone,
I have a Triumph Street Triple and I'm planning on getting a bag (the bag can be anything from top cases to tail bags). I'll be mostly using it for small trips and grocery shopping (I don't have a car). I was wondering if this one is the right choice or if I should buy something else?
Thanks in advance
Roger
A shopper on Aug 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Beta Plus bag is great for trips of a few days to a week. It's a pretty big bag and I find it difficult to fill up properly for a short jaunt. I would, though, recommend it for any type of adventure because it's versatility. If you are going to pack groceries in the Beta Plus, consider finding a couple smaller Rubbermaid storage containers for delicate foodstuffs because the bag's compression straps will crush breakables.
I have the Beta Bag Plus, Mini Beta Bag and a Wolfman Tank bag. The Mini Beta is about 500 ci smaller than the Beta Plus therefore probably better for shorter trips, depending on your packing needs. I use these bags on a '13 Scrambler and an '07 Tiger.
Hello, my bike is ducati monster 696 2011.
I don't know is this bag fit on my bike? Because of my bike's exhaust is pretty high (near the seat). However, I saw someone use mini one, and it is fit.
I wonder I can buy the plus one, because I need to put a spare oil tank inside the bag.
Thank you for your help!
A shopper on Jun 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The over hang is about 5", so you'd need your exhaust to be at least 7" lower than the top of the seat where the bag will be. That would leave you with 2" between the bottom of the bag and top of exhaust. Not sure if that is enough but I personally wouldn't have it any closer than 2".
I will be doing a 10 day road trip around Nova Scotia (no camping) on my 2010 Triumph Bonneville. This seems like an excellent alternative to getting hard side saddles installed (I already have a rear top box installed). Wanted to know if I should go with the Beta Plus model, or the mini Beta Plus? I know the measurements are different for each bag as to where they lay across the rear saddle of the bike. Any advice would be most appreciated. Thanks :-)
Joseph A on Feb 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: For a 10 day trip go ahead and get the Beta for the volume. I own it and it is well made and attaches securely to the bike (Triumph Tiger 1200). Be sure to include a rain liner or cover in the purchase. Over a 10 day ride you will surely get into some foul weather. If I'm not mistaken the new model comes with a waterproof liner. Hope this helps. Have a great trip.
I have a 2013 Vrod muscle. Will this bag be ok on the rear fender without scratching the paint? I"m trying to find a storage bag that can also be used as a back rest for rear passenger.
A shopper on Nov 14, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I cannot respond to your question concerning a Vrod Muscle. I mounted my bag, padded with a folded bath towel, across the rear fender of a 2001 Honda ST1100. I then rode the bike from N.C. to Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, back through Colorado to New Mexico and Home. We experienced nine straight days of rain, out maneuvered three tornados (Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas), experienced high cross winds across New Mexico and an additional two days of rain returning out of Tennessee into mid-North Carolina. Our 14 day trip was extended to 17 days due to inclimate weather. The bag was stuffed with a waterproof liner and all the contents were off-loaded and re-packed in a motel each night. We had no problems with leaks with the waterproof bag liner. The Wolfman Beta Plus Rear Bag performed flawlessly. I would be hesitant to strap the bag directly to the rear fender without some type of padding. Sand from the roads out West (particularly in Wyoming, South Dakota, and the desert areas of New Mexico) can work their way between you bag and fender. Without some type of padding I think that you will experience the effects of sanding between the surfaces. I hope this information helps in protecting you bike and your gear. I don't think you can go wrong with the purchase of a "Beta Plus" but also add a bag liner. Cheers, Troy Shirley
Does this come with the water proof stuff bags?
Mark F on Jul 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. They are purchased separate and imo are necessary if you expect anything more than a light rain. I also organize by the different small packs so I can grab the two I need in the tent and not haul everything out of the main bag. This is a great piece of gear. But just part of a system.
Will this fit a CB500F?
Colin L on Feb 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Don't own one personally, but fitment is fairly universal. If you a rear rack and passenger pegs it should be no problem. Enjoy!
Will this fit on a 2014 Kawasaki Versys ABS?
Michael H on Sep 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have a 2012 Versys 650 and it fits great. I would assume it'd fit yours fine as well.
I have never had tail bags and I was wondering if these would fit on a 2008 honda cbr 600rr?
A shopper on Aug 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: These trail bags are excellent the drop down ends and the non slip bottom of the bag insure it sits very secure behind me on my Triumph America passenger seat, I imagine your concerns were similar to mine as tie down points were very limited on my bike. With a little ingenuity and the generous length of the straps on the bag you also will be able to enjoy the benefits of this great product travelling around on two wheels.
Hope this has in some way helped your research.
Thank you,
