Bump.... I've been riding my TW with two tool tubes for 5+ years now holding two MRS 1.5l fuel bottles. They finally failed on me while riding a nasty pot-holed road at March Moto Madness this year. I think that the weight of the full fuel bottle and the road shock was just too much for the plastic tube mounts.

So - I moved on to Version 2.0. Since the MRS fuel bottles are a similar shape to a fire extinguisher, I bought two fire extinguishers mounts to use. I used three cable brackets to hard mount it to my rear frame. I used the awesome Titan straps to then secure the MRS bottle to the fire extinguisher frame. It seems rock solid and avoids me screwing with the plastic tube caps.

Here is the mighty TW at March Moto Madness this year. We got some surprising cold weather this year.

Most of my riding pals (and my son) had KTMs ranging from 400 XCW to 690s. The little TW kept up with them on the trails - but I was a wide-open-throttle gear shifting fool. The tougher the trail, the more you love having that little TW. This year I think I'll look into upgrading the front springs to keep my fat ass from bottoming it out so much.
Here I am with my son on the surprising snowy trails in Tennessee
