Will the Desert Fox or Jerry Flex hold if you drop a KTM 1290 or a Yamaha Super Tenere on it ? The Jerry Flex looks very durable.
Personally it is like anything the right conditions and it will get damaged example, if it gets pinched between the bike and a rock it will definitely cause damage especially when empty but the cordura outer shell is pretty tough
Good to hear, mine is now almost 5 years old bought in 2014, well the one that is left over after my parents house was burgled, admittedly I only use them for 4-6 weeks a year and the rest of the time they are stored inside a storage box, the storage box has a mild smell of petrol but that is from petrol spilled over the outer shell on my 2018 trip, couple of mild spills and drops of the bike but they are still going strong.
You guys and gals down in Australia are a real gem, I only found out about these bladders from watching a Simpson Desert adventure video.
I'll definitely will give the Desert Fox a go. What about water bladders?
I use one Desert Fox for water and one for fuel

The Desert Fox bladder looks about as durable as a wine cask bladder. Not something id like to stress too greatly.
Pretty much anything incl. metal or plastic tanks can burst if all the wrong circumstances come together....
Our Desert Fox units are going into their 7.year without a hitch.
But they're only used by some old farts skipping over some gravel roads and stuff, not chasing Dakar wins.
Love 'em for their no-fumes and airtravel-friendliness (security/ dangerous goods/ sniffer dogs etc), having taken them
all around the place from Europe to NZ.
made with chinesium
Oh no, something made in China!
So let’s revisit this
With a trip coming up I need to carry I’m guessing 16 litres on the 1190r to make 40 ltrs
What have images found to work or not work for their big adventure bikes needing to make around 600ks of sand/outback travel?
