Re: Rotopax -

How safe are they in a crash? I have entered the Alcan5000 for 2014 and the rallymaster won't allow them for safety reasons. I need 170 miles fuel range and I'd like to ride my 690R. Since 170 miles would be a stretch I was planning a Rotopax using the Wolfman rack mount. It puts the tank on the side of the bike. Anybody fall off with a Rotopax? Any issues?

I only really need a gallon. Rally Raid has a 1 gallon rear tank that would work but it is $600!

I think a Rotopax would be the last thing to give in a crash, they are tough. The rallymaster is just not wanting to open the door to extra tanks, let one in then you have to make an argument about every other gas can.
