One runs under the passenger footpeg, up inside the footpeg brace, around the gas can through the handle. This strap is held in place under the footpeg by two sided velcro straps looped around the footpeg. The second strap runs around the forward bar of my Happy Trails pannier rack and through the handle. I have traveled over 10,000 kms with the gas cans strapped to the bike this way without a problem, even over some very rough roads. I only fill them when I need the 500 km range the additional 10 litres of fuel gives me. Also, there is no interference with my size 12 riding boots. Cheers, David

(not affiliated) if you're looking for something similar, but more substantial (less prone to falling off), BestRest Products makes something called the PegPacker which looks to be a bit more stable than just two webbing straps.

Look like the Kriega set-up (You can see the seperate bags looking at the center of the bags). Thinking abou this one myself...how do you like it? Oh, good looking bike (same as mine)!

Yep. Looks like the Overland 60 system.

Hi Chad, stop in around the end of Feb, we should have a set in the shop.

It's the Kriega Overland 60 with the optional RotopaX kit on the other side of the bike.
I chose this setup to save a few pounds as compared to hard cases.

Give me a heads up. If I'm not on my way to FL or back, it would be great to meet up.

Now the rear view.
The setup works well when loaded. the 60 litres of space makes a guy pack lighter. You really don't notice the bags behind you.

Fatallybitten, kaia, hi mates.
Great refueling ideas! But let me tell you I'm concerned about these setups because they seem to be improved "legs eaters" to me, as I like to call them
Why? I have been in trouble twice getting into fesh fesh faster than I should, needed to correct the situation putting my foot on the ground, the fesh fesh took my leg backguards and.... my side case (Gobi KTM/H&B) hit (ate) my leg in a quite rough way ... it was ok just because of my boots and fortunately I didn't bit the dust
Now you can see why these setups look as improved legs eaters... just saying
May be you are not riding offroad, may be you are, just thought I had to mention my experience (ok, may be I'm the one and only stupid )

Cheers!
