Wolfman E-12 Enduro Saddle Bags
Long trip, good bags
Bought these bags for a 4,500-mile trip and they held up really well.
I forgot to wrap the compression strap at first and ripped it off when it got caught in the chain. More my fault than the bags.
Not a lot of storage space but very easy to install and take off repeatedly.
I crashed with the bags too, going about 30mph and the bike slid on the left bag for about 20 ft. Got a few small holes but held up better than I expected. It was my second laydown on that side too.

I bought these for my WR250R.
They fit great and work really well.

I was so impressed with the product and my friends liked them, too.
I am ordering a second set for a buddy of mine.

Holds a lot of things and stays out of the way. Never knew they were on the bike while riding.

Heavy duty materials.
Haven't ridden many miles with it but it is built out of thick tuff material and should do its job for long time. Easy install on my DRZ400S

Perfect bags for my DRZ!
Bought them for camping off my bike. They hold a surprising amount of weight and all the d-rings give you multiple options for attaching more gear even if its not another Wolfman bag.

A good Jack of all trades set of bags
I use these on my WR250R and they now work quite well. I would imagine many people would need to customize them a bit as I did. I got a pipe heat shield from Giant Loop to keep the bag off the pipe as well as applied some sticky heat shield to a corner of the bag that was able to still touch the pipe in certain circumstances, and it has worked very well. None of that is a fault of the bags as they weren't for my bike specifically and obviously bikes are all a bit different. They hold a decent amount of gear and look right on the bike. Another good Wolfman product.

Mounted E-12 on 2008 WR250R
I had the Dirtbagz Ranger bags and mounting racks before and I didn't care for the bulky look and large foot print. When looking at these I was trying to get something tight to the bike and the needed traits streamlined, zero interferance while standing, price point. What it lacks in water proofing (easily solved with my stuff sacks I use anyways) it gains in good looks, flexibility and cool factor. It didnt' hurt that I have a boat load of other Wolfman stuff and I love their quality & attention to detail... and I'm a bit of a nerd for matching gear!
Install was easy, the instructions can help you if you can't figure it out! I mounted mine UNDER the seat and after seeing another install I'm going to make some notch cutouts in the lip under the seat to keep it in place and reduce wear points on the straps.
I took these bags on a 200mile trip during the 2013 Shenandoah 500 rally in George Washington National Forest. Very tight even over gnarley rocky stuff and rutted dirt. I never had anything come loose or shake about. GREAT compression system and easily accepted the 1L Fuel bottle on top of the left one. This was a big one for me as I didn't want my 2gal rotopax on the rear rack off road. 1L will get you 10-15 miles on these little bikes and you shouldn't ever need more on recreational runs. Perfect matchup with the E-12, you could even add a 2nd one on the right with yoru water bottle or more fuel etc... I've been thinking of putting a tool tube on the right one to keep the contents of my fender bag in.
Heat issues** If you have a Wr250R you are worried that this will burn on the exhaust it does not. I ran it all weekend at the rally mounted with the right bag on the exhaust shield as pictured. If you have the FMF or another aftermarket that does not use the stock shield you can make it work by drawing them far enough forward if you mount under seat but then it's getting close to your legs. I've seen it done by shifting forward and by using a custom bracket to hold the bag up.
