Ah ha, I recognise the bike now from the Aus 250 thread
Love the exhaust
kag - Looks like a Wolfman Wolf Tail bag? What size are those bottles? I really like that bag and have been trying to figure out how to attach fuel bottles to it - the d-rings it comes with just aren't placed well for it. I didn't realize that mesh pocket had that kind of room in it.
I had Mike from OBR ADV Gear make me two holsters to carry the Touratech 2 liter fuel canisters. He put some webbing loops on them, so you can strap them to just about anything. I found that the holster will also hold a 2L water bottle.
For my first field test, I just strapped one on my rear fender in place of my Wolfman Enduro fender bag. It worked great!
For multi-day rides, I will strap both holsters onto my rear luggage, giving me up to one extra gallon of fuel or water.

Found a source for these cool containers:
No shots of gas cans on the scoot, as I'm never that far away from a gas station, but I have a few Scepter fuel canisters that I have on hand for car trips. The Rotopax stuff looks great (especially for mounting on a bike), but I think the Scepter cans are great as far as pricing and durability goes.
But, again, I haven't strapped one to a bike, and the 10 L ones look about the same size as a small pannier, so they might not be the best option. Plus, I don't know if they're available in the US.

I don't understand why is Rotopax stuff so expensive? like it's just a plastic container wtf.
Have you tried an abuse test on them?
They seem really tough but c'mon.. i work with plastics and the material they use is far from expensive,blow-injection is also one of the cheapest forms of molding plastic. in my country they go like 300 dollars without the mount. it's weird.
Because they can get the $300?
Yeah, the 300 isn't because of their retail pricing, it's the money grabbers between you and the manufacturer.
I was under the impression the Rotopax is made the same way my Prijon kayak is. The mold rotates multi directional as the plastic sets.
This kind of machine is expensive.
They are actually made with a machine that makes a plastic ''bubble'' and then blows a lot of air trough it,making it fit the mold that is around said ''bubble''. it's pretty cool to watch.
I previously mentioned the 2L fuel canister holster made by OBR ADV Gear. They now make an adjustable bottle wrap for carrying 1L or 1.5L bottles. I bought a pair to attach a 1.5L bottle to each tank shroud. They work great!

5 liter NATO Jerry can on rear left side of hack is good for an extra 35 miles, or so. I want another, but I can't find the correct tall rectangular shape anymore; just the square, short-style ones.
RotoPax 1 gallon on a PM Cargo Rack XL
Nice pic. May I ask where that is...
Looks like Telluride
Made provisions to fit three MSR fuel bottles on the left pannier
