I just had one (plus the tank paniers) on the Strom for 15 days and over 5000km and it was AWESOME!

Great fit, lots of room, and eaasy on and off when fueling or taking your valuables with you. I had it super laoded to keep as much weight over the front as possible, and it held up amazing. The carring handle is ultra strong too. Great product!

Just got back from a 3000 mile jaunt, using the Wolfman Rainier. It met all of my first expectations. Great bag. Only point I would add is that if you are going to modify the bag for adding device charging pass throughs such as sold by Eastern Beaver, DO follow the instructions. I did not and made a mess of things, fortunately I did not ruin the bag, but lesson learned.

16 month bump...

Just got my Rainier and rain cover from Bryan at Atomic Moto and I want to see where everyone else attached the straps. I hooked the front straps around the bar that runs perpendicular to the frame in front of the gas tank (fairing bracket maybe? didn't feel warm so I think it's structural) and ran the fabric under the rougher black plastic middle piece. The retainer strap isn't quite perfect, I might loop it around that plastic piece or something, it's too long as is.

In the back I hooked the straps around the frame and ran the fabric under the lower rough black fairings so the retainer strap is hidden under the seat. I'm a bit worried about the heat on the right strap (frame felt nice and warm when I was putting it on after my ride). What do you guys think, ok place to put them? If not, what's worked for you?

I looped the back strap under the silver tank bracket. The loose ends stay under the seat. I just ordered the "X" strap retainer as I hate the buckles flapping around when I'm not using the bag.

There's a ton of slack on the front straps, and I should cut them, but I hate to do that in case I want to sell it later (or I screw up!)

I wish they made a magnetic version. The size is just about perfect. I bought the bigger exterior pockets.
