Hey JohnGil glad to see you are not afraid of a little rain and mud

Singletrack_mind if you are going to do the side mount to your rack you should think about strengthening it (depending of course on what you got now).

The side mount RotoPax full of gas and bouncing around off-road puts a fair bit of stress on the rack.

BTW lot's of riders at the Vancouver Motorcycle Show were liking the side mount idea but we'll see how many actually run it...
