Wolfman Beta Plus Rear Bag
Great bag, wish it was waterproof
I bought this bag for a short road trip with my girlfriend on my 2015 KLR 650. I was worried that this bag would not fit on the back of the bike as its designed to to be mounted where a passenger would sit. Turns out it works just fine (pannier racks made it easier to mount) and she ended up with a decent backrest for the trip. The only complaint about the bag is that IT IS NOT WATERPROOF. If you're expecting bad weather the i suggest adding some dry-bags for the inside.

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.

Used the Wolfman Beta Plus Rear Bag on a recent 600+ mile weekend ride. The bag mounted easily and securely to my Moto Guzzi V7. The mounting system was straight forward and the material on the bottom of the bag prevented it from shifting from its original position once the straps were cinched down.
The bag is heavy duty and very well constructed - Made in USA! Glad I now have this and will use it any time I need to pack my gear - on or off the motorcycle.

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.

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!

Lots of extra storage for the price.
Good, tough bag. Provides more storage than my hard cases. Provides great support for my back on long road trips. Allows you to carry a lot of stuff and still split lanes in CA, which is priceless through cities like LA, SF, Etc. Unless you're taking a 3 month trip across Africa, id recommend this over a set of $1000 panniers. Fit great on my F800GSA and mounted pretty solid.

great price fits anything
I've got a 1993 DR350 and this bag fits it like a glove. Couldn't be happier with the setup.

Great bag for my NC700X, I only wish Wolfman made a waterproof version.
I got the Beta Plus Bag for camping trips. I use this bag in combination with a Dry-Spec D-38 which I carry on a rear rack. I've done one 3-day trip to Vermont but with the Beta Plus and the Dry Spec I could have packed for a week. The Wolfman worked great. It was very easy to organize my items in the Beta Plus. Lower legs, heavy stuff. The center section is huge: food to the left, clothes to the right, two-man tent and rain gear on top. The side pockets are not big but they are very useful for easy access to small items. The extra outside straps are handy for anything that doesn't fit inside (I strapped on a small backpack in case I decided to do a little hiking). The specs say the channel opening is 10" at the top and 14" at the bottom which is probably accurate but don't be too concerned if your seat is wider than 10". My NC700X seat is almost 17" where the bag sits and it sits on the seat without a problem. I did 1000 miles and never felt the bag move, it just sort of wraps around the seat and takes whatever shape it needs to take. Easy on, easy off, just 3 clips. For you NC700X people, it is very easy to gas up; just unclip the back clip and tilt the bag forward for access to the tank. I did get caught in a downpour, a little water inside the bag but not too bad. Although I had everything packed in plastic, I am ordering a rain cover ($30) for my next trip. Highly recommended, this is huge upgrade from the duffel bag I was using. At $170 I think the bag is a little pricey but it sure does work and it seems to be very good quality so maybe the price is right.
