If I still had a GS this would be the perfect addition to make it a viable long distance adventure bike, the other options didn't work well for me either.
think this could be made to fit a G650GS? similar shape back there...
I haven't seen you around these parts for awhile. Looks like you've got a nice bike tour gig going
I haven't looked at the 650 single yet but I have lots of ideas to explore once this project is up and running.
I'm hoping to be down your way this winter. We'll have to hook up for a ride.

"Can those bolt support the tank by itself?" I'm sorry I'm not sure what you mean. The tank is mounted at the front with the 2 threaded inserts under the seat and a big beefy bracket at the back. There is no issue with the Siskiyou panniers resting against the tank. I did a test fit on an F800GS in the Giant Loop vendor booth at the Desert 100 race a few weeks ago. The exhaust supports the left pannier and our tank supports the right pannier.

The tank is actually two gallons
