    Damn just the solution i was looking for. Had considered one of the Acerbis Aux tanks but at better than $160 that was way outside what I wanted to spend.
    This is a perfect solution, plus it looks pretty cool. Who says you have to fill the bottles with fuel? :-) Thanks

    Two 1 liter MSR bottles inside tool tubes that are mounted under the cases.

    One (or two) 1.5L Primus bottle(s) in a Mosko R40 bottle pocket for an extra ~25 (or 50) miles for max range of ~200 (225) mi.

    Great. I have used them for carrying water on several trips, and fuel on a few. I suspect they will last longer than me. Very well made and easy to use.

    Heres our contribution. I have the Rotopax on a mount where the pillion would be. The little CRF with its tiny tank packed the jugs on the panniers. In reality I usually carried the 1 gallon jugs on the Africa Twin. Also in the background we met some folks one was on Honda CB500X I think, he was hauling stuff rearward of his gear.

    This has been a great thread. I’ll bump it with my solution: MotoTrekk panniers from Giant Loop, OBR ADV 2 liter bottle holsters, and 2 liter fuel bottles. This is on my Scrambler - absolutely necessary on this bike out west. Gives me 1 gallon of fuel, so tank range 160 miles plus 1 gallon = 210 range. Really the bare minimum out west. I can just swap the panniers onto my KLR if I want stupid long range, or if I need to act as fuel tanker. I dig the setup because it is the panniers that get swapped and no need to make one-off solutions for every bike.
