I recently discovered the wonders of RotopaX and adopted it to my bike. Simple concept executed excellently. I love the fact that you can attach these to darn near anything and if you can't, RotopaX probably has an attachment solution.

I bought this helmet based on the reviews I read here and on a few other sites and from trying it on at a local bike supply shop. I like the fact that it was using better materials at a lower cost. Also liked the fit of the helmet when I tried it on at the store and the price was terrific at Revzilla (as usual), however,....the reviews did indicate poor build quality in some cases and honestly, they weren't lying. The screws securing the rear of the brim fell out just by touching them and they were so small, I am not sure what engineer thought that they would hold under speed. I secured them with Gorilla tape and hope they hold through my next long trip. The helmet also fogs like crazy, even with anti-fog spray, which is strange since with the extended chin indicative of a dual-sport helmet is pretty open. It's also noisy but that is not unexpected for this style of helmet. It's a 50/50 choice but if I had to do it over again, I would not have bought this model.

Wolfman Tank Pannier - good but not great

Being a short guy for once has its advantages on a non-cruiser. I ride a 2013 G650 GS BMW dual-sport and my knees just barely touch the backs of the panniers. Woohoo! With a long trip soon, the extra carrying capacity is welcome.
The negative part of these panniers is that like most other Wolfman products, they are not waterproof (or even water resistant). The first day I rode with them it rained and when I got home there was over 1/2 cup of water in each bag. I was glad I had not yet put anything in them. Not sure where the designers at Wolfman ride but apparently it never rains there as I have also had their rear panniers and experienced the same thing.
Oh well, fore-warned is fore-armed, so I sprayed them with silicone camp spray and will only put things in there that are either not affected by water or are in waterproof baggies.
I'd still recommend them as they really look good and are very functional. Enjoy.

Wolfman products always seem to provide a little more than expected. While a little pricey, I think you get what you pay for and ultimately, you won't be replacing this bag for quite some time. Mounts to the bike multiple ways, it can be used on the pillion, rear rack or tied to another bag. Bought the Nelson Rigg Survivor version of this first and one of the bottom supports broke off within 2 days of being put on the bike. You pay a little more, you get a little more.

Not much exciting to say about a rain cover, other than it works. My only comment is that Wolfman might want to rethink their marketing strategy and pricing as their rain covers should either 1) be included when you buy one of their bags or 2) lower the price of the rain covers to make their bags more competitively priced. They have great products but price is a component of how and what people buy, esp. these days.

Bought these crash bars because they had 3 mounting points, seemed rugged and were a lot cheaper than H&B or Touratech ones. While the installation was okay, they use the original nuts but supply the new bolts. The 2 top nuts fit fine but the bottom (longer) one did not. I think they could have supplied locking nuts or at least black ones to match the bolts. Also, these guards do not work with the H&B skid plate. Not sure what other skid plates would work with these since the bottom support attaches at a very low point at the front of the bike. The guards themselves are pretty nice, so if you don't ever want to put on a skid plate and don't mind heading to Lowe's to buy a nut that fits their bolt, it's worth the price. That said, I cannot recommend the fit with any other brand of parts.
No, I do not recommend this product.

The last one of these I bought was for my '08 1200GS and I got it from Touratech. The AltRider one looks cooler, functions the same, and was a bit cheaper (and it came in black!). Add Revzilla's great customer service and quick delivery and it was a great buy, all the way around.

I really like the looks of the AltRider accessories. Especially since most of them also come in black. I knew that I'd be taking a chance buying this but with only one screw holding the rear brake reservoir onto the bike, I was pretty safe. It's a little big but it works and it looks great too.

First, Wolfman products are very high quality and will stand up to a lot of the punishment that some of us put our bikes through. I bought this bag for my new G650GS and unfortunately, it was a lot smaller than I expected. You can't put much more in it than a pair of glasses, wallet and keys. Not sure why a map pocket is on such a small bag either but hey, I'm sure someone made it work. I've ordered the Ranier tank bag and will probably sell the Enduro or keep it in case I get a scooter.
Btw, I have only one criticism about Wolfman products in general,...they are one of the only companies that make you buy a rain cover separately,...and they are not cheap! C'mon, just raise the price of the bags and throw one in. : )
Yes, I recommend this product.
