Reserve fuel bottles

Wondering if anyone has purchased reserve fuel bottles and how they are attaching them. Specifically have looked at the Lowbrow customs bottle with carrier in stainless. Thoughts?

I've got one (not a Lowbrow one) with a plastic mounting bracket, but disinclined to mount it (with my luck I'd dump it on the side that I mounted it and would all go up in smoke). Plus, if I'm taking a long ride, it wouldn't be on the Bobber. Those riding with me know the puny tank I have, so if I'm pointing to the gas cap while riding, they know I need to pull over; that, or I'm pulling over alone. At the 90+ mile range, I'm ready for a break anyway.

I have since removed my bottle (just prefer the look without, but itís a fantastic quality bottle + leather holder):

Autonomy is a real problem for long journeys in sparsely populated areas (i.e north of Spain for us) or when driving at night.
I plan to install this backup tank even if I am aware of the danger in case of a fall.
it's the Mooneyes emergency tank

I use the Reda Innovations Fuel Container. Although it is made for HD bags it fits nicely into the Triumph Saddlebags and gives a full gallon. It is vapor and leakproof.
