I too would recommend the 4.7. I had the 3.1 for the TAT and not only carried an extra bladder, but often had to "plan" gas for the day. The NEXT time I do the TAT I'll have a 4.7 on my WRR.

This is exactly what we used on the TAT. Everyone had a hydration pack and also a jug of water from walmart strapped on the bike. Worked a charm.

Sew the tire together with cord or wire, then use a ton of plugs.

On a GS, the valve stem is offset on the rear. You could try to use a tube but it may rip the valve stem out of the tube.

Yep. Our decisions to bail off the TAT were always successes. Being stuck to only the TAT would have been far less of an experience.
