Dave, yes that helps. Is your suggestion with the rotopax mounted "normally" or rotated? Either way the rotopax blocks access to the cutouts. Of course, I could put the GB on first. Maybe just...

Anyone figure out how to carry the Rotopax 2g and the giant loop on the 990 and still have room to sit?

Thank you. That was really helpful. I think I'll do just that, not get the 3.5, get an excel 4.25, and then get a 2.5. Perhaps the new 1.85 on the front is a compromise, but it works for me.

Thx- the mefo met my traction needs, but it seems that the narrower excel rim is less susceptible to rim damage. What's the difference on the street running a 150/70 vs a 140/80 on the street?
