    What’s a buckin’ Roll? The tank bag for most of the aftermarket, dry-break-style fuel cells!

    Made with the same 22 oz vinyl coated polyester as the rest of our products, sewn here in the USA with seam sealer included for almost total water proofness. (Take the time to apply seam sealer - it really works!)

    [​IMG]


    This will obviously fit on the Acerbis 6.3 gallon gas tank (pictured) but a wide array of other fuel cells too. Here are the dimensions to help you decide if it will fit on your bike.

    [​IMG]

    We’ve put several thousand miles of hard off-road use to perfect the size, simplify the layout and refine the shapes. It attaches using these nylon straps threaded through the radiator air vents.

    Here it is on our friend Pat’s XR650R which has an IMS tank.

    We created the 3 pockets for specific items but you can stash more stuff in this little unit than you might think.

    [​IMG]

    The center pocket is for your camera. Use the drawstring closure to keep it in place, the lid will keep out the weather.

    The mesh pocket is for temporary stowage of items like you ear plugs. How many have I lost on the trail over years? Not any more!

    Wondering how it works in action? Go here to see Pat )N2moto) giving it a proper thrashing (be sure to view the vid!):

    You can also catch glimpses of our yellow prototype that survived almost 2000 miles of treachery in Oregon, Nevada and Idaho this summer by going here:

    $125 (+10 shipping) includes Seam Sealer and detailed instructions.

    Black only

    Fits on Husky Clarke and IMS after-market tanks - more model specific photos soon!


    Wondering how we came up with the name? Working on a ranch in Montana back during college, we had a quite a few old cowboy relics in the tack room and I found these unusual wool-filled, leather pouches that were used to create a last ditch point of contact to the saddle in an attempt to stay on a wild horse. Go here to find the origins:

    Nice work. Any chance of these things working on faux tanks like the 690 and 650 Dakars?

    Thanks - are you talking about this bike?

    [​IMG]


    Not sure about that but I can go check it out for you. His body work might work. The Buckin' Roll requires either the stock radiator shrouds or an air vent molded into the tank for attachment.

    Nah, was more thinking of the F650's. Although I'm in the process of making my own body work with some air vents which might work.

    quick question,
    i'm desperately trying to find a tank bag/loop/roll/somefugginthing to work with a safari 30ltr tank on a DR650.
    the buckin' roll would be great, but it looks like you have to have some hole in the tank to attach it?

    does anyone know if it will fit a DR650 specific safari?
    thanks.

    what if you fastened a strap/bungee around each wing on the tank? then you could connect the Buckin roll to that.

    That would probably work. Wish I had access to this bike with the Safari tank. They're pretty rare around here. The Fandango will work as it's designed to sit right on top of the fuel filler cap and zips off for gassing up.
