As a general rule I avoid crashing...

The cans fit within a plane that extends from the crash bars to the panniers, there is about 12" of free space between the pegs and the bottom of the tanks, really don't see any increased risk. If it is a head on I will be going forward, lowside I slide out, highside I am thrown off...Sure, anything can happen, but if I wanted to avoid any risk, I would drive an M1 Abrahms.

Like this set up, a lot, very simple and safe way to carry extra fuel with the bar lock through the screw top of the bottle. I plan on following your design, nice work!

Touratech Large Fuel Tank add on for F800

Anyone shell out for one of these, yet? If so how has it affected handling and looks. Thoughts and opinions?

http://www.touratech-usa.com/Store/P...34301b56840ec6

Strapping a couple of MSR bottles to the pannier system seems like a lot less trouble and money, but I'm curious.

that works out to 372$ per stored gallon (uninstalled that is)....one good thing you can always count on Tourteck" for an unreasonable solution!

Right. I realize it isn't cost effective. I was interested if anyone had actually done it anyway, and what were the results.

I assume you have to undo the clamps to get the bottle out ? No biggie I'm sure...

I carry a dedicated nut driver under the seat. Takes less than a minute to have both bottles free. At some point I may use thumbscrew style clamps but it's not like I have to get them on and off frequently and quickly.

Saved me from pushing up in Canada when I was 6 km short of the gas station. That's all I need.

Totally agree - just there for emergencies. I assume no issues with them rattling/coming loose ? You mention Canada so I'm assuming you mean the trip there earlier this year ? If so, I'm sure it got a good workout on the trip...
