Wolfman Explorer Lite Tank Bag
Fits my 2011 R1200GS Perfectly
I don't like tank bags that come up too high, cause I'm short.
This fits the slope of my tank really well. Very nice size at baseline and opens to expand.
Strap system is really good, and I like the rubber guards to protect the tank paint.
Refueling is so easy, just unclip the front and flip it back. No need to remove completely to refuel. Takes two seconds.
Nice bag, strong material and good looking. Exactly what I was looking for...

Wolfman Explorer Lite on BMW K1600GTL
I purchased the Explorer Lite on Wolfman's recommendation for my GTL. It fits very well between the handle bars. Attaching the forward straps can be a little tricky but that is a function of the GTL. Just follow the video on the RKA site using a zip tie. I like the fit and quality of Wolfman products.

Fits & works great on my G650GS
I'm very happy with this bag. The curved bottom fit my G650GS perfectly and it attaches very securely. It holds a lot of stuff and stays in place over rough terrain with no movement. The materials and zippers are heavy duty and everything feels like quality. I have every confidence that I'll get years and years of service out of this bag.
Get the X-straps for when you take it off though.

Great tank bag
I'm on a BMW K1600GTL. The install was a little tricky, but not bad. Watch the video. It's a really nice looking bag. If I go stop to stop, the bars barely touch the bag at full throw. I'm very pleased. Personally, I think it looks LOTS better than some other sloped tank bags.

Very nice tank bag
First Wolfman product, very nicely made. Took some effort to find good mounting points for the straps on the F800GS, however it's now very secure. Not sure of how it could be done, but would like to see some smaller strap ends or clips that could be left in place on the bike to speed installation and removal. All in all great bag, perfect size for what I wanted w the ability for some expansion. Definitely buy Wolfman again.

Very durable bag that works well on my R1200 rt
When looking for a tank bag for the r 1200 rt there where a few options but none that came close to the Wolfman for value. The bag mounted to the rails and unbuckles with ease at gas stops. It holds the items that a biker needs access to while on the road.

Hallelujah! Finally a bag that fits the BMW GTL!
Just back from a 4500mi road trip and happier than a three-peckered puppy with this tank bag...possibly the only bag made today that truly fits the GTL. The fitment issue with all other tankbags stems from the increase of the swept back handlebars on the GTL vs the shorter more aggressive ones on the GT.
If mounted in the position as shown, you can see from the images the full lock left and right causes absolutely NO ISSUES with cutoff switches or the blasted horn. The absolute last thing I need in the middle of a slow full-lock turn in a parking lot with my wife on the pillion... is to hit the cut-off switch! Not so with very other bag I've tried - including RKA. But more on that in a minute. Also the fuel cap is unrestricted for filling...disconnecting the bag is not required. Additionally, the placement allows me to rest either arm on top of the map panel during cruise control. It also allow me to lean forward and rest the belly against the rear of the bag stretching out my lower back on longer runs.
Initial install took less than 10 min and was a combination of the Wolfman instructions for the rear of the bag AND using the RKA Website suggested video install for the front. The included cross straps were unneeded and bag was secure for the entire trip with no periodic adjustments required. Raincover not utilized as the weather favored our trip.
I was surprised at the volume as it provided for: #3 32oz water bottles, large aerosol Plexicleaner, #3 12"microfiber towels, #2 pair armored winter touring gloves, sunglasses, eyeglasses, body shield, bike/comm manuals, phone&helmet chargers. The plus is that I didn't feel like I had a picnic basket on top of the tank! Only 10 seconds to remove and walk into the hotel at night!
Unless I'm tagging along with Charlie & Ewan across Asia again, I can't see the need for any more storage on the tank.
Not convinced? Well good hunting, but this one fits the bill for me.
