Wolfman Explorer Lite Tank Bag
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.

R1100GS - Not sure how I lived without a tank bag.
I just love having a tank bag. fit my bike perfect. place to keep your mp3 player. easily get food at drive thrus. empty your pockets of cell phone, wallet yada. great place to throw paper directions. i throw a water bladder in there for long trips. toll tickets and cash are quick. might add 1 min to filling up with gas. very quality build. def not waterproof. and the yellow pull loops faded quickly.

Durable tank bag
I really love this tank bag. I have a few different Wolfman products and this is probably my favorite. The size is perfect for spare gloves, a bottle of water, my electronics in a waterproof case, and other such accessories I want accessible on the fly.
I used this for all the important stuff I didn't want to leave on the bike at gas stops and camp grounds while touring. I purposely did not go with the waterproof tank bag because I wanted my things to be a little more accessible. I got rained on a ton and really didn't have any issues. While the bag is not waterproof, it did take quite a lot to get to my stuff inside.
Just a note, I used this on my 12 Triumph Scrambler -- it fits well, no fitment issues.

Nice size for my BMW F650GS
This tankbag is a perfect fit for my F650GS. It easily holds all my tankbag stuff with room to spare and is expandable. The fit and finish are first class. Easy to operate the zippers. The map case is plenty large enough to stow my map plus other flat items. I'm very pleased with this bag.

Great tank bag
This tank bag fits very well on the F800GS. It doesn't get in the way when I'm standing on the pegs. It also has ample room for all of the stuff I carry on and off road.
