Wolfman helps keep our trails open!

20 July, 2014

Wolfman, a 2014 Diamond level sponsor of RMAR, wants to remind you that RMAR's dual Rendezvous are coming up--July 24-27 in Silverton, CO and July 31-Aug 3 in Meeker, CO.  Enjoy the scenery if you are signed up.

Klim and Wolfman's 2014 support has helped RMAR fundraise for the TPA, COHVCO, NMOHVA and a handful of trail clubs in the state of Colorado and Utah. By Wolfman supporting RMAR, they have been able to involve others and help spread the message to work and support the effort. Over the last three years, RMAR with the help of Diamond level sponsors and Rendezvous events has additionally and single-handedly added over 250 members to COHVCO.

Let's keep our trails open for all of us to enjoy riding!

 

WOLFMAN'S Eric's ride went on a diet!

17 July, 2014

I am currently going on an adventure bike diet. I have ridden all makes and models of bikes over the past 37 years.

Currently I was riding a 2012 Yamaha Super Tenere--a BIG monster of a bike at nearly 600 pounds. I had ridden over 30 days in January, February and March away from my snow-locked Colorado. It is a hoot to ride and I like to often ride alone and ride fast in remote, gorgeous locales. This scares people… …and now myself if I am honest.

When I attended the Backcountry Discovery Route fundraiser in late March located outside of Wickenberg, AZ on the last day, the last mile to base camp at Boyd Ranch, I had a freak accident. All of my years of experience, all the types of motorcycles I have ridden didn’t prepare me for my KTM 500 getting away from me on a deep hole in the desert. The result was significant damage to both knees and my sense of confidence on big bikes. I know me. I would rather die than not ride motorcycles. I eat, sleep and drink all motorcycles as you can guess from my occupation as owner, designer of Wolfman Luggage.  Therefore I needed a new plan as I am recuperating my knees.

I had a KTM1190 on order, I had to cancel it. My new plan was forming along with my healing journey. I will not stop riding, but I should slow down a bit.  I had surgery on my right knee three weeks ago.  In my current state I could not pick up the Tenere. So my new theory, if I cannot pick it up I should not ride it. (Especially alone in the remote dirt). Now what does this mean? I crave adventure like the next guy. I can’t wait to escape suburbia to rugged regions—Bolivia’s Death Road, Baja’s dusty trails, Moab’s White Rim, Colorado’s hidden gems of single track. In order to continue to escape, I am going towards a lighter bike.

What?? You ask. Yep, a lighter bike. An adventure diet from the big bikes for now. After much research I narrowed the search to three bikes. The 2014 KLR New Edition, a DR 650 (I have had 2 in the past. Still one of my favorites), and the WR250R. I ended up with a 2011 WR250R (I have secretly wanted one for quite sometime) with less than 1000 miles. It came with: FMF Q4 pipe and Mega Bomb header. Led turn signals, Fastway pegs, Flatland skid Plate. Why the WR? The build quality of the Tenere is great. I like Yamaha quality. The reputation of the bike--low maintenance, goes forever, follow riders Scott “Dingweed” Stevenson has over 50,000 miles on his. Mark “Big Dog” Sampson has over 45,000 miles on his. I like to ride pretty aggressive off-road and will give up some strong road manners for a bike with better dirt manners.

I built up a 2011 WR250R as part of my PT and knee recovery!  Here is the build:

Behind the Scenes at Wolfman Motorcycle Luggage

Ever wonder who's working behind the scenes at Wolfman? Meet our staff!

Wolfman Welcomes David Komoroski - Domestic Sales Manager

01 February, 2014

David comes to Wolfman in a roundabout way from the hills of Western Pennsylvania, and a family full of postal workers and Moto Guzzis. His love of motorcycles began before his lust for girls, and while other boys his age started going on dates, he worked on killing an oval of grass in his parents’ front yard. He first heard of Wolfman after trying to mount a 40lb. set of ammo cans to the back of his KLR.

David is in charge of customer support, tech support and dealer support.

Exciting News for 2014!

30 January, 2014

These are exciting times for Wolfman Motorcycle Luggage! For 2014 we have some Really Good News. And some, well, awkward news.

The awkward news is that there will be no more Wolfman Side Racks. Berg of Backroads Moto, the talent and muscle behind our racks, is heading for new horizons. Though we're disappointed in this change, we wish him the best in those endeavors. Thank You! to all our customers who have purchased our racks over the years. We still believe they are among the best in the industry and we expect that they will serve you well for many years to come. Some styles are still in stock, but they'll only be available until they're sold out.

Here at Wolfman, we are striding forward toward our original and ongoing goal.

Wolfman Luggage has always been about making the best quality motorcycle luggage. We will continue to design, innovate, produce and distribute the highest quality motorcycle luggage while striving to deliver superior service to current and future customers.

Which brings us to the Really Good News.

For 2014, we've come up with some innovative new products that we hope will make Wolfman Luggage an even better choice for riders who demand the best in American made motorcycle luggage. We think these products will help make our bags even more versatile, more universal, and more practical for more riders. For starters, there is an innovative set of straps that allow Wolfman saddlebags to fit on virtually any motorcycle rack made today.

Not long before...
