I don't own one of these bikes but I like them and have been following this thread. My concern riding this bike on an extended ride is the small gas tank compounded by the fact the seat has to be lifted up to add fuel. I realize it's capable of getting good mpg but what about when it's loaded down with bags, luggage strapped on the seat, and ridden at higher speeds? Just wondering if you've considered utilizing some of the faux tank and plumbing it for auxillary fuel?
