Here's Howard's pics - if he doesn't want them posted here, I'll delete them.

Mount Location
Shows the location of the mount on the tail rack. This is too far forward if the Rotopax is carried parallel to the bike's axis. I'd move it aft one to two inches. However, when carrying the container perpendicular to the bike's axis (mount would be rotated 90 degrees in that case) this might work well.

Bracket Mount
These are the two pieces of aluminum stock that I mounted to accept the 6mm flanged fasteners that then mount the koplin mount for the container. The forward piece of stock uses the 5mm holes already drilled in the tail rack.

Aft Mount Detail
Detail of aluminum mount for rear section of Rotopax mount. Aluminum stock cut to shape of diamond in Moto Billet tail rack, then a step was filed (use an end mill if you have one!) into the diagonals. This captures the aluminum piece and prevents twisting when torquing the 6 mm flanged fastener.
