Fuel bag

Post by Dave » Wed Jun 10, 2015 8:58 am

As some of you may have guessed, I don’t go shopping much :biggrin2

Yet another item of curiosity, that gets one to thinking might be a handy purchase...

Especially if you have a bike that often does less that 100 miles before the fuel light comes on :???

Useful to store under your seat.

Of course as with all 'temporary' fuel containers they are not supposed to be full of fuel all the time as they are only certified for short duration storage ;)

Dont forget some plastic hose in order to syphon off fuel from one of your mates with a larger tank!

We did offer to take you on a run tomorrow. But you're insisting on making your nest nice and comfy for your visitor coming :arse

The offer is still there but I wouldn't imagine it'll be long enough a run for you to need to take your catheter bag with you though....

I was going to get one of these for my naked bike, but there is not enough storage space under the seat, and that is after I managed to reorganised the space under the seat to store the Helmetlok

Surely you could put that in flat beside your back armour.... could double as a beer / wine / water / pi$$ reservoir in stranded emergency too.... :log

On a slightly serious and interested note, whats the method for retaining the fluids in the bag? tie a knot ....valve ....ice cube bag style auto close etc?

Just looks like an expensive plastic bag.

Nice sense of humour touch from 'ze germans' though .... calling it "Jerri-Flex " could have done it properly and called it with a 'y' :arse

There is never a need to save pi$$, I know so many people that are so full of it that there will never be a shortage

Outside of a bunch of 'go wild' numpties no one should be storing p*ss :nono

We are in Scotland, water is plentiful.
