    I will post again after I figure out and implement a sturdy, quick attach/release system. I do not want to use any kind of plate under the container, I want it low and bearing weight right on the rear seat.

    Seriously, how many days do you ride every year where you are afraid the gas stations will be more than 150 miles apart? For those few times when I head out to nowhere in UT or NV, I'll attach this. For the the other 340 days a year, I will leave this at home.

    I think some paint to match your bike on that gas pack and some color coordinated bungees would be cool too..;)

    That member has not been on the forum since July 29, 2015. I hope you find a solution of your own, and if you do start a new thread so we can all be informed.

    Roger that. I have a couple of one gallon Rotopax that I might try to mount just for longer trips. The other option I am going to investigate is a fuel bladder for the bottom of the top case tail bag. I will advise as it rolls ahead. Tom
