    MMD Bottle Holster Black for motorcycle and luggage https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B076ZKB5..._XfZeDbJGRWTHQ

    This could be the answer. Just need to find somewhere on the bike to strap them

    Exactly what I did last weekend for a 4 day trip to Vianden. I used it all & it leaked in between top ups. I’m worried if I use something less viscous, over 3 weeks in 35/40 deg I’ll be effectively changing the oil from 20/50.

    Well it's a feckin suprise the rest of the world who carry petrol for their stoves haven't all been incinerated

    C'mon man, you're a 1150adv owner, don't let the side down.

    Here, I'll give you a clue of what I do for a month long hard offroad ride.

    Plastic oil bottle with some insulation tape to secure the cap after it's been opened, bottle stuffed inside a piece of old inner tube. Sorted.

    I have never ever needed to carry oil.
    i like to take 200ml in 2 x 100ml clear plastic bottles - the type you buy to take liquids on airplanes. The bottle tops are taped up and then they are in little sealed sandwich bags to catch any leaks - I keep them under the seat on my GSA.

    Ok, its only 200ml - but if the bike did run low (and experience tells me it likely wont, it doesn't seem to use much) then 100 or 200ml will be enough to get rid of the "low oil" warnings until I can check the level and buy some more at a garage if needs be.

    Nothing worse than a warning light at the top of an alpine pass to make you worry al the way down the other side!

    Separately or together? If it's together you must have a good story to tell.

    I used to have a large female following but I managed to shake her off after a couple of bends...

    Unless the 'large' lady is Salma Hayek. Have you seen the snake dance in "From Dusk 'Till Dawn" ??
