Thank you for the comments. I keep the dslr in the top case with some of my clothes. 90% of the time the fuel canisters are empty and stashed inside the rack. If I know I need to use them I empty them right away and then tie them to the crash bars. I tie the, down with those rubber covered grippy metal wires they sell at REI and I use bungee chords. The bike did really well for this trip. Only downside is lack of clearance in certain situations.
