And no, I'm not so rich that it wouldn't sting the wallet, but I've never been a fan of solutions that looked hacked together and half assed.

I was thinking this system :)

Your more likely to pass on gas stations if you have big tanks, and then you'll run out.
I'm with the bladder, keep it there for when you need it.

FWIW, I do have an IMS on my KLR, mainly for rad protection and very rarely have needed it's full capicity.

I have a 75 aux gallon tank in my truck, plus 35 gal stock tank, now that's range, almost 2000 miles :) and for less cost than the KTM aux tanks.

very nice guy

I have 2 of his bladders on my yacht the quality is outstanding & you pay for it..

i asked him if he could cut a 20L bladder and make 2X 8L ones for me, he wasnt keen to do it as the new corners wouldnt be great..

i have the 20L one on my yacht, i think its too big for a bike, but Lazslow has a photo of a DS biike with one on (wait till you see the price he sends you!)
Thanks for the info-- I was just window shopping, especially after your comment on price.

Africa Queens sells those rear tanks. Not cheap! But very nice looking indeed.

Just picked these up.

I just picked these up yesterday. I was having a hard time deciding about buying the Safari tanks with all of their drawbacks compared to a removable system. The previous owner of the bike had these custom made. They hold about 12 litres each and pop off easily when you don't want the extra weight.

What do you mean failed badly?

Whoops! Where's my gas?



The worst part is the fact that I knew we had over 100 miles to go before "known" gas.

I can't find the pic of the melted can right now... Or of Mommer's Rotopax's after the mounting failed...


I just told Ned I'd take an ADVtank. Definitely the best solution out there.

Is it just me, or do the hard bags with stuff stuck-to/hanging-off of them make an otherwise svelte, albeit big, trailie three bikes wide? I can't imagine the carnage I'd leave in my wake, from my garage to the trail!

Just hanging the Gobi's on mine makes it about as svelte as a container ship. I can't think the addition of whatever gas tank could exacerbate that.

I never saw them on a bike. Don't know anything about quality or fitting.
But I think, 8 ltr. isn't that much.

I'm now the third owner of this set of Adventure Overtime tanks, the original purchaser was unhappy with the fit and finnish compared to their cost. Another inmate brought them from him and had to repair some crash damage and painted the carbon fibre with primmer.
I don't realy care what they look like as long as they work, I'll hit them with a rattle can paint job and give them a test out.

+10 There's a reason everyone on the Palapa Chair ride called my bike and mommer's bikes "KTM-ebegos". It's pretty wide (and pulls up and unholy amount of dust)

MADBIKER1 question

Jeff are your new fuel cans plumbed in ? Are they attached to the gobi's or have there own rack?
I'd like to see try mounting up a cylinder all painted up like a nitrus oxide bottle mounted up nice and tight to the body as an extra fuel can . I'm going to keep my eye on ebay for an old NOS bottle : )

They aren't plumbed in. Just separate jerry cans which means that I'll have to stay far ahead of the pack to have enough time to stop and fill up. Shouldn't be a problem.
They have a separate rack that bolts on separately from the gobi's. Two prongs stick out from the rack and the tanks slide on. The tanks need to be removed to take the luggage on and off. There was a guy selling an aux tank in the flea market for $120 which would have work well.

Great idea! Post pix if you mount one.
