Wolfman E-12 Enduro Saddle Bags The E-12 Saddle Bags strike a balance between carrying capacity, rider mobility and convenience. Ideal for Enduro Touring, they hold a surprisingly generous load without the need for a rack. The highly adjustable mounts are able to fit virtually all Enduro/Dual Sport motorcycles. The compact design does not hinder the rider. The E-12s are a refinement and improvement of our already successful E-10 Saddle Bags. The new E-12s are more versatile and the updated design and construction make for even stronger and more robust bags. Two 2 straps across the seat 8 -2 D Rings on the bags for more tie down options Redesigned for more internal capacity Features V Compression strap on each bag, to keep the contents stable Quick and easy on off. No rack system needed! 8 D Rings on the top to attach the Enduro Duffel, Rolie Bags and the Renegade duffel Full Highly Coated 1680 Denier Ballistic fabric construction along with foam and non-scratch on the bike side Heavy Duty #10 YKK Coil zipper main opening Reflective Webbing Accents, nighttime visibility Legendary Wolfman Made-in-USA Construction Dimensions Width 6 5/8 (168mm) Height 9 3/4 (248mm) Length 14 3/4 (374mm) Capacity 22 Liters (1342cu.in.) per Pair

I purchased these bags for my 2013 KTM 500 EXC. The main reason was that no mounting frame is required. I'm not sure I should, or want to, place too much weight on this bike anyway. After all, I went with the KTM for high end performance and agility/ability, not to be a cargo bike! Anyway I mounted the E-12s a few days ago, they went on easy and fit well with only the stock equipment supplied---so far, so good. I have them loaded up with approx. 25-28 lbs. of tools, rain gear, extra gloves, rope, etc. I took them out on a highway ride in a cold down-pouring rain storm the other night........WARNING: they are not very water resistant. This issue, from what I see at this point, is the main area that needs to be improved. How many of us are not going to ride through water & mud on trails, and/or in rain storms? Perhaps treating with Scotch-Guard will help?
I do plan to use my lower sub-frame bolt to mount a strap ring so that I can get the exhaust side strap completely away from the hot pipe (see picture on Wolfman website---they show a picture of this method for the E-12s on a KTM 525 EXC ). This strap is now very close to my KTMs pipe, but, seems to be okay--just a little concerned that it may prematurely fail if left that way.
Over all I am pleased, the E-12s appear to be well designed, constructed, and of good quality materials. I can recommend them; just keep in mind the water issue.
Yes, I recommend this product.
