Excellent work! I love the idea! What are the dimensions of the bar that goes underneath the rear rack?

Nice job Hondo!
I live in Chile and I have my "issues" with the Gobi tail box in dust trails. I folded it 2 times and with lightweight. I imagine with the Rotopack will be worse ... Did you tried it on dirt roads?

Yes, I've ridden the bike with the gobi tail box & the rotopax full of fuel on dirt roads, but not on any extended length rocky trails.

I have ridden very rough terrain with the Gobi tail box without any issues.

Nice job Hondo.......as usual.

It's kinda sad seeing your old green steed in the background of your pics.
She seeing any action since you got the 990?

I sold the KLR650 and replaced it with a 2008 KLX450R -

Nicely done. Can you open the panniers with the rotopax in place?

Yes I can, but the mermites are not hinged like a typical pannier. If they were, I'd have to remove the Rotopax can to open it.

Damn I ordered two two gallon rotopax they must be huge. Is it really a problem with weight mounting them with a bracket on both sides of the tail box???

The weight has never been a problem.
