Well lucky me, my wife got me a Wolfman ridgeline duffel for xmas. Looking forward to not having the backpack strapped on anymore!
Thing is I can't figure out how to attach it. Never had any kind of tail or tank bag before. There are four hooked bungees coming out of the bottom. Do these loop under to the subframe, go through the loops under the seat, hook together under the seat??? I'm guessing that this isn't rocket science, but none of these seem particularly secure and I'm just wondering if I'm missing something.
Anyone have one of these Wolfman bags?

It's supposed to attach to the loops under the seat. I put small key rings on the end of my loops to reduce wear as you install & take off a bag.
I haven't used the Wolfman, but the bag I use ended up hooking to the front loops & around the rear turn signals to get it where I wanted.

Thanks. It seems crazy that you simply bungee the bag to the bike and that's enough to hold it on, but I guess that's the way these things work.

You could also try straps like these. ( You could make your own, but why not pay the person who did the work to figure it out? )
It wouldn't hurt to fasten to the passenger foot peg bracket to be sure. I'm not super secure about any kind of soft luggage not sliding out of position & leaving me, or worse, catching on the rear wheel. I'm always reaching back & checking.
Oh, yeah check out the directions...
