    If there's a way to make it work I'd be all over it. As is, they don't stack.

    Just got my 1 gallon containers. I am blown away by the ruggedness of them. They seem like they could take some serious abuse.

    Well I called Rotopax and asked about combined shipping and 20% discount as some inmates cannot waste there one phone call a week on a gas tank. Like most offers anywhere you cannot combine offers and it says so in the free shipping part on there website. Gave me 20% off so I ordered Yellow 2 gal. for gas , not diesel as am putting a black and yellow bike together. Now you other cheap bastards just think how much you can get for a gallon of gas when you see that cage driver, out. It will pay for the shipping!!!!
    Now order and be done with this. Please get on with your life. It can only get better!!!!

    I just got my locking mount and it looks rock solid to me. I think the trick is to only put the lock in when you're done riding in the mud and dust. Locks don't like dirt. I would also use graphite powder to lube and stay away from the WD40.

    I didn't see anything posted about it here, but they show a new 1.75 gallon pack on the website. Maybe I'm behind the times, but I didn't see it last time I was browsing around.

    NEW RotopaX 1.75 Gallon Gasoline Pack..... Sure to be the most popular size and shape of RotopaX yet! NOW SHIPPING... Size is 13.50" Wide by 15.00" Tall by 3.5" Deep



    I think it'll be perfect for my needs! Placed on this rack:

    With this tail bag on top:

    Combined with the 3.2 gallon tank, I'll have just about a 5 gallon capacity (300 mile range), which is what I was shooting for in my 'touring mode'.

    Just placed my order for some Rotopax stuff and the coupon code is giving 15%. :clap

    Edit - Just received email that the order shipped this morning. Great service...

    Finally gave in, the new 1.75 gallon size is about perfect for the plate on my V-Strom and the current additional $5 off stacks with the 15% coupon. Got that and a deluxe mount for about $83 shipped after both, good enough for me. Looking forward to installing it, should bump my range over 300 miles.

    Been looking through pics to see a setup like the one in my brain to no avail.

    Anyone mount these things flush with their pannier rack? My plan is to do so and throw my Wolfman soft saddlebags over one.

    My concern is the proximity of the fuel to the exhaust can. High pipes on the 950.

    Would LOVE to get a green one...

    This is a PSSOR instructor in training; he mounted his Rotopax to the rack and then straps his soft luggage over it. I don' a have a pick with the luggage... we have more instructor training next week and I can get a better pic then.

    Here's my set up with a rack from "manracks" who is a vendor here on ADV. This set up works great for me and will probably get a storage pack in the future. Rotopax is a great product.

    I have been waiting for almost a month for someone there to answer the voice message I left on the business phone.

    Will there be a new size water container (1.75 gal)

    I was hoping to get a 1.75 fuel and a 1.75 water container and some hardware.

    If you have not already, try e-mailing them. I did this to inquire about a 1 gallon storage pack and received a response from the owner rather quickly.

    Thanks. I think Moore will get drafted, but not until the later rounds. He would make one hell of a back up somewhere.
