Hey guys, I have a quick question for all you who may know the answer.

I see that "Humpo" has 2 luggage tanks on the side of the bike.

And wonder, where do you purchase these fuel tanks? I want to be able to do long touring runs but, sometimes fuel range can be a problem as its harder to find gas stations late night when you're in the middle of no where. Any help on this setup would be great.

The ventura works ok but you can only have the bag facing to the rear not both ways like the older models. Also its not water proof. I have the Givi top box on mine. I had to make a bracket to fit it but works well, but it just looks like a bbq.

Pictures of luggage on The Italian Superbike made me think of this...


I will not attach luggage on my 1098 S, but I understand that people want to ride their bike where they want to go..

The little Ducati Performance tailbag looks nice, but will hardly do for the long journeys...

Not sure where you got your info, but you have it backwards. They actually tell you to have the bag facing forwards due to the exhaust. the rack mounts facing forwards with the front of the rack pushing against the passenger seat.

I recently used the dual bag ventura on my 1198 with no problems.

Also not sure where people are worried about rain with the ventura, as all of the newer setups come with waterproof rain covers. I have found that the bags have no problems keeping water out unless it is a serious downpour.

cheers.

The Lambo is from a pro snowborder
