There was a brief discussion on Wolfman/Nelson Rigg bags. While theres no argument Wolfman are great bags it was my contention their more than double the price was not justified. So I finally got around to ordering and got the bags installed. The issue most have with nelson riggs is their straps and how they attach, not the bags themselves. Ill agree with that but the better straps and attach points doesnt justify an extra 242 bucks (saddle and tail bags). I used my savings to buy a few rok straps that will be holding everything on.
I wanted to do what most do to help the bags keep there shape by putting trash can liners in them. Couldnt find where people did it with NRs but many that did it to WMs, went to Walmart and bought 2 of those cans. Got home and they slipped in with an inch or two to spare all the way around it.........damm, too small. Looked online and sure enough the NRs are 8 liters larger per bag than the WMs, so for less than half the price you get more bag Took a bag to Walmart with me, should have seen the looks I got trying to shove different trash cans inside a bag I brought in
Cant use the rok straps with an empty bag so will only use them when actually loaded. First thing I noticed.................damm that TWs wide now
The bags will stay mounted, my use of the TWs is probably a little different than most. Its my adventure bike. I wont be using it purely for trail riding or commuting, just adventuring. I also got the dry duffle tail bag not shown.
Those look great bro!!
