It's rather obvious I'm not satisfied with the stock fuel capacity of most motorcycles. :lol3

The Kolpin looks like a Rotopac.
I installed it and was glad to have it when needed.
Only complaint - don't load it up with a heavy bag on top because the tank squishes and folds at the seam.
I don't know if it will leak because of that.

My old bike (F650GS - single) had these fancy "peg packer" things I could mount on the passenger pegs - one on each side.

Now, I've simplified and gone a little more basic - Kolpin mounted on a cutting board.
