Water container solution
« on: March 13, 2018, 02:45:24 pm »

Riding a GS Adv.  When on trips, 2 bmw panniers.  No space on top   (mount my PG gear over the top)

Any of you need to make a plan carrying water.   Figured the only space is in front or behind the side panniers.   

"Home made" if possible.   Low on moolas.

1-up or 2-up?

There is a bracket that can be bough/made that fits onto the passenger pegs and holds 2-liter bottles....

Will try find a pic.....

Only me, gear take up all the space on top panniers and most of rear seat (but pegs are free)

Let me talk to Nomad Gear.  Waiting for a quote from them anyhow for custom made bag for my gear (hey...maybe can  add some slots so I can shove a few bottles in there..going to be a moerse bag.)

Ek het twee van die Krokonoster.  Alhoewel ek hulle saam met die Blizzard soft luggage gebruik, is ek seker jy sal plek kry om hulle vas te strap.

Send me a pic (or post it here) of the panniers from the side and back and let me see what we can come up with.

Front of panniers (or rear even) would be ideal.  Places I go I often go down (dented my one box lekker already)

Then big bag (mailed you yesterday) over the top (2nd pic).   Will be kief....off to ride/camp/hike/fly with needing nothing (famous last words)
