made out of some tuff curtain sider type material,has eyelets at each corner for easy mounting.
used one on the cape york couple of years ago.
i think liquid containment in AU makes them @about $160
Hi there,

Thank you for the suggestion!
Are you using these?or just for one trip? How do you find it?
I have looked them up on the net. They look ok ,but can call me old fashioned but I still not trust these bladder types.They should be ok for road use but probably need a decent support for dirt. therefore defeating the purpose of being store able. hence a 5lt plactic petrol can will do the same job for the cost of $5. ( El Cheapo!!!) Well I m thinking having a petrol can as a semi permanent fixtures to my bike to extend the range until i have $$$$$$$ to fit a larger tank.Most likely it is tiresome mucking about with petrol cans but I just want to get out and ride not to wait until the bike is all set up. so the cost of these would cover about a 1/3 of a 18.5 or 20lt tank.Which I think should be the the long term goal.
Thanks.
