I'm currently looking at suiting up my Wee with Wolfman Luggage because of all of their great reviews posted all over the web. I've decided that I'm going to get the Explorer Lite tank bag but I'm unsure about what tail bag to get. I'm looking for a tail bag that will fit the rear rack of the Wee so that I can still ride 2 up with the bag attached. I'd also like the bag to be able to fit two sets of riding gear or one set of riding gear and a helmet. I've read good reviews of the Beta duffel but it states that it is designed for the rear seat. The Wolf tail bag looks like it will fit the rear rack but I'm concerned that it will not be big enough for my needs. Does any one have any experience using any of the Wolfman tail bags or duffels on the rear rack? I really like the Ridgeline Duffel but don't want to get it if it will not attach to the rack. Any advice or info will be greatly appreciated.

Cant speak regarding rear bags, but the Explorer Lite is an excellent choice for a tank bag.

Re the tail bags, tried Aerostich? Great selection. www.aerostich.com

That Moto.Fizz bag looks like it fits the bill of what I'm looking for. I haven't heard of the brand before but I'm just starting the farkling process. I'll have to look into the brand some more. How does it compare to Wolfman's stuff?

Call Gary(801-598-4949) at Pat Walsh Designs he carries all the Wolfman products and is a Strom Owner. I'm sure he could answer all your questions. I have the Beta rear bag and have never tried putting it on the rear rack of the Strom always had it on the passenger seat. But I have a GIVI top case. I'll try it on the rear rack tonight and let you know what I think.

I don't have any Wolfman's bags, so I really can't comment on how the MotoFizz compares. Maybe someone else can?

I can't comment about the Motofizz stuff but I have owned both the Wolfman Explorer lite and Rainier tank bags and if you can afford the difference in $ go with the Rainier. It is a perfect size for the Strom.
The Wolfman stuff is top drawer.
Happy shopping.

Wolfman Luggage

I'm about to pull the trigger on a Wolfman Explorer Lite tank bag and a Ridgeline duffel tail bag for the rear rack. While I like the Rainier's side pockets, I think that it will be a little too big for my needs. Eric at Wolfman recommended the Wolf tail for the rear rack a while back and it seems like the Ridgeline has the same bungee attachment system. I feel like I could use the extra room in the tail bag. I just wish that a fellow stromtrooper had the Ridgeline to vouch for it. I'll probably place the order in a week so feel free to comment on this particular setup or try to convince me that there's a better one out there. I do really like the motofizz camping bag but it's a little out of my price range right now and none of the tank bags look as if they fit the tank as well as the Explorer Lite. Being extremely anal about things of this nature (on the verge of OCD), all of my luggage will have to match. Thanks for the help.

Personally I like the hard luggage because it's waterproof and lockable. Something like Givi is nice. Also, sears has a killer deal on a Givi style one right now.

The Beta (or maybe its Alpha, I forget) fits perfectly on the KLR's rack, which is almost the same size as the Strom's rack. You should have no issues with fitment.

As an FYI for guys who like the "eared" style of bag, RevPack makes two sizes of Tour Packs which are of the Wolfman Alpha style but consist only of one large compartment (no end pockets). They are great bags and half the cost of the Alpha / Beta.

Mud Puddle - thanks for the pix of the Motofizz bag. It looks like it hangs over the rear rack a good bit on the sides. Do you have some kind of platform rigged up there to support it?
