    Coming to Charlotte, I'll ride down, it's only a one tank trip, 480 miles, I can stay with my Niece. I may actually be riding through Charlotte in a few weeks

    Wow...! it would be great to also meet you Mike overthere, just like that...
    And better for Blur, he can deliver me to Canada with you when he feels enough is enough with me... :lol3

    Anyway, don't be affraid, long rides and flight tickets are temporarily postponed for me, due to my little kids (6 and 5 years old) and to family's budget. I'm in the middle of a standby stage until they grow up a few years, until that time when they don't miss you a bit :D. I will then return to long rides, I dream with rides out of LatAm. :thumb

    Could you post more detailed pictures of your gas can mounts? :ear Do they mount to the passenger peg brackets?

    For the occasional time I need greater range, I'm hesitant to invest in the safari tanks.

    HellSickle, here is a close up photo of the gas can on the left side. It is your basic 5 litre plastic gas can that you can buy just about anywhere. I got two of them at Canadian Tire. I have one on each side. Nothing fancy about how they are mounted. They are held on by two web straps. One runs under the passenger footpeg, up inside the footpeg brace, around the gas can through the handle. This strap is held in place under the footpeg by two sided velcro straps looped around the footpeg. The second strap runs around the forward bar of my Happy Trails pannier rack and through the handle. I have traveled over 10,000 kms with the gas cans strapped to the bike this way without a problem, even over some very rough roads. I only fill them when I need the 500 km range the additional 10 litres of fuel gives me. Also, there is no interference with my size 12 riding boots. Cheers, David

    Thanks David!

    On our previous trip to BC I was on a KLR with 250-300 mile range. I only expect ~180 miles or so on the 990. I might look into a slightly larger can for each side. I might experiment with ~2 gallon.

    BTW, nice looking bike :evil . Have you considered painting the cans a KTM orange? :deal

    BTW, how far are you from Dakar Rally?

    (not affiliated) if you're looking for something similar, but more substantial (less prone to falling off), BestRest Products makes something called the PegPacker which looks to be a bit more stable than just two webbing straps. :D

    Look like the Kriega set-up (You can see the seperate bags looking at the center of the bags). Thinking abou this one myself...how do you like it? Oh, good looking bike (same as mine:evil)!

    It's the Kriega Overland 60 with the optional RotopaX kit on the other side of the bike.
    I chose this setup to save a few pounds as compared to hard cases.
