The 2l containers are strapped on top of the 2 side bags. A further 2 2l bottles can be carried in the top of the 2 side bags.
The 5l can be strapped to the back, front or the top of the beer , depending on the current weight distribution.

And same same on the other side.
The 5l can be strapped to the top of the beer if i was wearing a rucksak.
The yellow bungee cords carry all the weight in the side bags and provide a very neat
suspension for the weight. I have done about 1000 km over some rough shit and to date nothing has
fallen off. The 2l coke bottles also make a nice holder for tubes and kit , providing the neccesary protection.
When the sidebags are emty i prop them up with 4 x 2l bottles each. ( more fuel if neccesary !)

Cheers :laughing4:

Well done there GAwel!
What is fibre PCB?

A Fibre PCB is a fibreglass reinforced electronic printed circuit board , much like a pc motherboard
without any components. Very strong !  :laughing4:
