Wolfman Summit Saddle Bags
They may not be the ideal saddlebags for all riders, but for me they are a good match: Well designed, excellent materials and workmanship. It was a bit of a challenge fitting them to my Honda Hawk GT, but between the well thought out attachment provisions and a bit of creativity on my part, I'm quite happy with the results. An easy upgrade I recommend: I replaced the removable internal stiffeners with pieces I cut from linoleum; with these, the bags hold their shape much better.

Great Saddle Bags for a Vintage Bike!
I bought these for my 1975 Honda CB200T so that I could do some touring. Perfect fit, great finish and good capacity. Very pleased.

Good but the little yellow pulleys (that's attached to the zipper) broke off (2 out of the 4). Kind of annoying because it happened on each side.
However with a little DIY it was fixed.
Great little page. I had a troubling time fitting my Bell 500 with visor in it but I sure did get my use out of it.
Other then the little issue, it is a great bag. Not too large and not too small. After 5 months owning this, I just learned there was side zippers with small pocket (doh!!)...but its too late, the bike is sold and now have my BMW F650GS!!! :-p

Perfect for quick trips
I have a 2014 Triumph Bonneville T100 and I wanted something I could quickly throw on and take off without additional hardware. These bags do the trick. The bags are perfect for the rider that goes on occasional overnight trips, but wants to be bag free quickly. I haven't ridden in the rain with them yet, but I anticipate using additional dry bags to protect my cargo. They fit Great on the Bonnie and do not hang in the way of any moving parts. Passenger sits right on top of the straps and has yet to complain of discomfort.
(I have only had the bags a short time, and I will update this review if any issues arise in the future.)

Great bags for the Bonneville
I purchase this bags to use on my Triumph Bonneville. They work great plenty of space to go to the supermarket and lots of space for traveling items. They are super easy to put on and take of the bike.
The bags itself can hold some rain but if you had a lot of clothes or valuable items make sure you use extra protection because there will be some little filtration. I knew the bags are not water resistant but I was surprise how much rain they can take.

All Wolfman Products High Quality
This is my second set of Wolfman Saddle bags. The first set was the waterproof Expeditions I inherited when I bought a used 06 KLR 650 and they are great bags I would recommend them to anyone. Sold the KLR 03/13 went to a combination Road-Dual Sport-Off Road Rally in north central Arkansas 04/13 and was around all those KLR’s again and missed mine so I found a good deal on a 2008 KLR and bought it with no bags. Didn’t have the extra money to buy the racks and the bags so I opted for the Summit bags that would suit my needs without the waterproofing.
The 08 KLR is the first updated version of the KLR’s and it is a different motorcycle than all of the ones past. The Summit bags would have fit the 06 KLR just fine but the 08 is wider and the tail rack is much wider than the 06. The hook and loop straps were not long enough to go across up and under the tail rack. They would have fit across the seat but then the bags would have been too far forward and the rear strap that goes across the back fender was too short and in both situations that strap was against the end of the tailpipe.
But I have a set of Cortech Saddle bags on my DL 1000 V-Strom that the hook and loop straps are too long and the bags sagged on the motorcycle that have about 30,000 miles on them and are no longer pretty but still in good working shape and fit the KLR perfectly. The Summit bags fit the V-Strom perfectly so all is well. The Woflman’s will serve the purpose I use them for perfectly.
