The wife and I used Peg Packers to keep from putting extra weight on the pannier mounts, and they mount low. 2, 1gal. jugs on each bike, F800 and a F658. (I would sell 1 set if anyone is interested.) Very few places you would need them. As other have said the GS’s get really good fuel mileage going slow on the bad roads. But never pass gas!

I put my Wolfman waterproof duffel on it, along with a duffel ahead of it, and strapped everything down with RokStraps. I called RotoPax to see if this pressure would cause a leak, and they said heck no. They drive pickup trucks on the RotoPax tanks in their parking lot for testing. As mentioned above, the sun and hot weather has more to do with the shape than stacking stuff on top of it. On a hot day coming home the tank ballooned way up but never leaked.
This is exactly what I have done. Except not on the tail rack and not with the Rotopax mounting hardware. But it made an excellent base for my BMW bag.

Hey guys!

I just stumbled on this post, and thought I might throw something out there for anyone who wants to try the advtank.

Use the discount code 'advalaska' during checkout and get 50% off of the tank. The code is good for the first 5 orders - only good at www.advtank.com

That makes it $149.50 + shipping.

Thanks!

Sh!t. Where was this offer when I bought mine?

Just kidding. My guess is that they have not moved as fast as you expected. Shame. I really like mine and have spoken praises to everyone I meet with an F800. Anyone one the fence should take you up on this offer.
