Wolfman Explorer Lite Tank Bag
Made in the USA
I have a 2012 BMW F650GS. The bag fits as expected. Tough to give a review after only a few rides in nice weather. It's nice to put something on my bike that's made in the US. This bag is a decent value compared to some of the other ridiculously priced tank bags. I would recommend this bag.

Perfect size bag for me.
This bag is a high quality bag. It was also the size I wanted for my R1200 RT. I didn't want the large BMW rail bag because it was too big for me. I had tried an 8L bag but it was too small. This is the "Goldilocks" bag for me. It was easy to install and has performed perfectly. I also brought the rain cover mostly for the sun and I'm glad I bought it at the same time.

By just giving it a first look, you can expect a life time performance from this item.
Excellent in every way.
And as usual CS/Shipping of Revzilla Rocks :)

Get the rain cover.
First time I used this was driving through the remnants of a tropical storm that hung around longer than was forecast...wish I'd gotten the rain cover. Took a day to dry things out. So consider that.
Just the right size for me. Installation was easy and secure.
The top's overlap is a tight fit over the zipper and I have to take my gloves of.
I think materials and construction are great.

Great mid size tank bag.
Needed a tank bag to fit my Super Tenere and it was a little difficult given the sloping tank. I also didn't want the bag to obscure the handlebars and dash or come to close to me restricting my movement. I had just come back from a 5 day ride around Tasmania and found the bag worked perfectly for what I wanted. It sat perfectly inline with the tank and didn't move or scratch the tank. Its a soft type of bag but will hold up with minimal contents installed. Installation was easy on the big Tenere as the harness provided work well with the Tenere. Fuelling up I just unclipped the lower clips and moved the bag to the side then re clipped when done. The bag didn't impede my movement or get near the bars and I was able to see all my instruments as its not an overly tall bag. One criticism is the bag is not water proof but comes with a cover you have to purchase separate. Its rained 3 out of the 5 days and the bag did get wet but didn't saturate the inner contents. For the price the cover should come with he bag.

Well built bag and reasonably priced.
This bag is nicely put together and is perfect for those that need a relatively compact bag that has the capability of expanding when you need that 'little extra room' for something you bought or had to take off (cold weather gloves, scarf, a book,etc.). It secures fairly easily to the bike (mine is a BMW R 1200GS) but does not fit as well as a BMW bag made for the bike. All in all, you get a lot of bag for a very reasonable price compared to brand-specific equipment (as in the BMW bag is over TWICE as much!). Highly recommended

TOO BIG for BMW G650GS :(
I checked on the Wolfman site, which suggested it was an okay size for my BMW G650GS but alas! it was too big. I got it on there easily enough and everything LOOKED just fine, but when I started her up to go take a spin I noticed that the bag was sticking me right in the gut. :( not comfortable. I don’t have a gut either. lol. Its just unfortunate that the riding position and the small size of my bike does not allow for this bag to comfortably work. back to the drawing board!
on the other hand, its a really great bag. I was sad to have to return it.

Great tank bag.
Tons of room, extra zip up addition is great for long trips with extra gear. Nice padded interior. Front pocket holds more than it looks. Over all very happy with this bag. Perfect fit on my 2006 drz400s. Does not get in the way at all. Set the bag just behind the gas cap for easy fill ups. Great American made tank bag, can't wait to order more Wolfman gear. Better make sure you have a rain cover cause your gear can/will get wet.
