OK, added a piece of leather then the bottle, 1/3gl filled w/91 octane since I replaced my tank w/a original 2.2gl peanut tank.
Have also seen enough loaded hose clamps fail. Might get some grief from a nosey cop too.
Worked FMS at Dover when the C-5A was starting to have issues with the wings. Had us stripping the paint off bolts check for cracks. Kinda miss the old place, except for the mosquitos in summer. Ride SafeI personally wouldn't have mounted them there, but to each their own. La Rosa makes bags with an attachment to hold those bottles. I wanted them when I ordered my bags from them, but I wasn't sure how good they would look. Plus I was in the process of buying a lot of parts, so I was looking for a way to save some money. I opted for the cheaper, bottle-less option. This was before I had been on longer rides....now I realize how nice it would be to have those bottles. I'll buy a few and carry them in a backpack or something.
