    Gas Can and Mounting Options for my AG200

    Greetings TW Lovers,

    For those of you with rear racks, I would appreciate suggestions for brands and mounting tips for carrying 1 or 2 gallons or gas, and maybe water. I like the sleek look and seemingly secure mounting of Rotopax, but I'm not sure exactly how they would mount; also, they seem a bit pricey moovinub.jpg
    Here is the rack on my AG. I'm also curious about what riders like to use to secure items to racks. I'll likely be carrying a tent, sleeping bag, extra clothes, and some food and water. As always, suggestions from experienced adventure riders is greatly appreciated.

    By the way, it's 22C here in Ulaanbaatar today! Tough day to be at work

    Ride safely,

    Hands down Rotopax. Here is my nephews https://tw200forum.com/forum/attachme...te-rotopax.jpg

    Can't seem to find a picture of mine mounted without a plate straight to the tube rack. Fuel Cans : Gas Pack : Gasoline Containers : RotopaX.com

    Rotopax mounting is billet aluminum, unlike the Kolpin which is plastic. However the Kolpin is less expensive. I have seen Kolpin mounts fail on quads.

    As for lashing, I love the Rok Straps. Unfortunately I left one dangle in Texas coming back from the shower house and the sprocket ate it. Replacement will be ordered soon. ROK Straps - The Ultimate Stretch Strap - HOME

    However, lashing with good low-stretch rope is very effective, just not as quick. The effectiveness however is dependent on the knotting system used. Master the trucker's hitch, it comes by it's name honestly and provides two to one leverage.

    MP,

    I can't help much with your original question. I just wanted to say how jealous I am of your AG. That is the coolest looking bike. I would love to have one.

    Congratulations on the warmer weather!

    I am frequently amazed that so many do not know nor use basic knot skills. Thanks for the refresher video, Borneo. ROK straps look awesome but you still need to secure tag end.
    Pete, you might notice some members sometimes use a bit of elastic net to help corral adventure gear in addition to use of straps , bungies, and/or rope on their racks. If not available then any other locally sourced simple netting might help. The netting also allows you to casually tuck a cap, jacket , water bottle, etc onto load for easy access, or help secure a rain covering from flapping in breeze.

    Probably because it is a utility (rotopax plate come on it) and it has bungie loops.
