    Had an advert come up on bookface from the shitty "wish" website.
    Knock of Rotopax. 3 and 5 litre.
    Cheap as.
    If you're on a budget it may be worth it.

    I've had the real thing and they were as tough as nails, these ones, dunno.
    $50.

    That is nothing, last year in Birdsville I saw two blokes on DR650s and they had much more than that. I don't know where they were headed but I hope it wasn't the French Line.
    One of them even had normal panniers as tank panniers, on the rear there were panniers, then massive bags on top of each one, another huge one the seat that stretched to the rear rack.
    All bags were fully stretched to the max, then there were pots and thongs attached to the outside.
    Each to their own, but that was way excessive, maybe the missus kicked him out who knows.

    For that price I'll get one. I regularly make lightweight brackets so it'll be handy.

    Whoah, yeah that's um...Supercheap!!
    For that price I reckon I'm in for one too. It'll save me hours of faffing around clamping lumps of angle iron onto a bit of sheet just to get a neat fold.
    Quality might be a risk, but most of the stuff I've got from Supashite has been OK. Sometimes only OK within very limited circumstances but..
    The big limitation of something like this is that you can't do anything other than a straight fold - so ends or box shapes or whatever are not doable with this.

    Cheers

    About 8 years ago I purchased a car roof pod for the wagon.
    The manager asked how I was taking it so I described the ute and he said to go and pay for it while he got one from out the back and take it out to my ute.
    Well when I got to the ute first thing I noticed was long white scratches on the lid as if it had gone into a low under cover car park or a garage, WTF I said to myself this thing looks used, opened up and there was red dust in it.
    I reckon it had done a trip around Australia, that really made me mad, took it back inside, lifted it over my head and threw it over the turnstiles into the middle of the shop.
    Get that cnut over here I said, he knew exactly what was happening by the look in his face, and he started apologing straight away and that he would get me another, without even asking what was wrong.
    Well you can fuck off to the counter and give me a refund that is what you can do you piece of shit.
    Haven't been back and also tell every one about it.
    You are right Not the Messiah, Supershit alright.
    This is one store though, not saying that they are all bad.
