Rear Passenger Peg Hydration System for FJR

Sorry my photo's are not of the System installed on an FJR but I will have some soon as I have sold a few to FJR Owners and they have said they will take pics for me. This should mount up well on the FJR's...

STAY HYDRATED WHILE RIDING. Introducing "MotoJug" The Universal fit Hydration System that takes the weight off your shoulders and put is on your motorcycles passenger pegs. Also works great for having extra water at camp for cooking and cleaning.


I believe one of the most important things you can do while you ride is to stay hydrated. I have struggled to find a way that will allow me to drink whenever I want. I have done the Camelback thing and while it works well I find that I can actually become fatigued and get sore shoulders from wearing one. Hour after hour. Also with the integrated packs that fit into your jacket and wearing under your jacket they can be a pain to refill and reinstall and also time consuming to fill and take off and put back on. Also they are hot on your back in the summer as they do not allow air to circulate underneath.

I was on a mission to come up with something that would hold ample water, stay cool because I live in the extreme heat and be easily serviceable. This is what my wife and I have come up with and it works AMAZING. This is a 1 gallon insulated water jug with a drink tube that you can either hook to your tank bag or your gear via a retractable lanyard. It makes drinking effortless and super easy. Just raise the tubing and bite valve to your mouth and during then drop the tubing. It retracts to it's previous position on the bike and is easy and safe.

My wife makes these bags for the jugs and we have been selling them locally and to family friends and they love it. Thought I would offer them to the masses on a few motorcycle forums we belong to and she hasn't been able to sew them fast enough to keep up with the demand.

The bag is made from a quality material and comes with loops around it so you can connect around the center of the jug in the bag to the subframe of your bike with by running the stars under some loops that are sewn into the bag. Also there are Velcro loops on the bottom of the bag to connect to your rear passenger Footpeg. Also on the top of the bag are 2 loops that you can use to secure the bag to either a rear passenger grab handle or the frame under your seat. Only necessary to use 1 loop but you can use both if desired.

Upgrades:
Original bag only had 1 loop at the top which didn't allow it to be secured to either side of the bike. By adding the extra loop it allows you to mount this bag to either the left or right side passenger Footpeg.

Also we added a stiffener to the top of the bag to allow the bag to hold its shape making it effortless to insert the MotoJug into the bag and to remove from the bag.

Another addition is we have added another level of loops around the center of the bag allowing you to choose which height works best for securing the center of the jug to your bike.

The MotoJug on bike Hydration System is universal fit between bikes as long as they have a center mount point to secure the jug in the bag via straps and an upper strap mounting point.

We have them available in 3 colors. Black, Red and Grey.

The bag is $50 shipped by itself. If you want me to include everything you need except for the cooler (can be bought at Walmart for $ it costs $75 shipped. It's a great system. Once you use this you will never go back to a camelback.

Prices:

Bag only $50 Shipped USA

Or

Bag, tubing, 2 Straps (for securing jug to bike) Drink tubing, drink tubing retractor and bite valve for $75 shipped
1 Gallon Jug is not included due to size and the fact that it would cost more to ship it than it would for you to buy one for $8 at your local Walmart.

Contact Dave via PM or email me at [email protected] to place an order

PayPal Preferred
Send PayPal payments to [email protected] and include the color of bag you want. Also provide me with an email address and shipping address. When I receive an email from PayPal I will send you an email with an estimated ship date. We are about a week out as of this post due to demand.

My Wife builds these to order. So specify color when ordering. Black, Grey or Red

Not too different than the ones I made. Instead of marketing it, I put all the info on-line so people could DIY. Then came the "frying pan" design that replaced the rear peg(s). Very engineer-y but much more time consuming to reverse-to-original.

Yep. At the risk of sounding snarky, this is known as "Reinventing the Wheel".

Time spent looking at motorcycles, even Harleys, is never wasted.
