I just bought a few SS carriage bolts, 2 sail boat cleats and some plastic washers for the jerry can. works great and no bulk. best part is I can slide the mounts up and down the tunnel.

have the skinz under seat bag I used all last year and just picked up a skinz IQ short track bag which clips on the seat supports. little smaller than some of hte other skinz bags, but allows for the jerry can when I need it.

I like having the 2 seperate bags 1 for maintenance type items: tool kit, spare oil, antifreeze, etc. the other for clothing, food, and whatnot.

Had the mountain addiction setup on both of my last two sleds. Hands down the cleanest and easiest setup to use on the market to date.

I slid the cans closer to the seat after this pic was taken.

Its a old school gott can with a blitz noozle that has the spout that pushes down into can when not in use,also rigged up a custom vent with a labryth style seal so can wont expand or contract and wont leak fuel,i scotch brite sanded the piss out of it and washed good with solvent and painted with semi gloss paint for plastic,see how it holds up.HEMI

Lots of great pics and ideas. My challenge is to carry fuel and a cookstove/grill for our cookouts in the backcountry. Anyone attempted something like this without using saddlebags?
